Saving the Holy Sepulchre

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines how historical antagonists managed to overcome their profound differences in order to complete the restoration of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Some of the obstacles to the restoration included contested possession of the church, deep-seated mistrust and differences of theology, language and culture. The chapter suggests that the complete breakdown of order in the Holy Sepulchre was prevented by the presence of the state, which performed peacekeeping or policing functions and the Status Quo which removed the underlying causes of conflict by ruling out access to the courts. It also explains Jean Trouvelot's thoughts on the success of the restoration project.

Keywords:   Church of the Holy Sepulchre, church restoration, state, Status Quo, Jean Trouvelot
