William Harvey’s Temporary Repairs

William Harvey’s Temporary Repairs

(p.47) Chapter Four William Harvey’s Temporary Repairs
Saving the Holy Sepulchre

Raymond Cohen

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the Greeks and Latins' reaction to William Harvey's evaluation of the structural condition of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The two groups conducted their own evaluation and their experts refuted Harvey's diagnosis. Consultant architect Luigi Marangoni, brought in by the Custody of the Holy Land, also refuted Harvey's assessment. In May 1936, the Latins finally recognized the true state of the church and a temporary consolidation was made to protect the structure. This chapter discusses the estimated cost of permanent restoration and the funding options considered.
