A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Holy Sepulchre and Golgotha in Jerusalem


Emily Cavins 2012

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Archaeologist and tour guide Emily Cavins has written this guide to aid pilgrims in unraveling the mystery of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which at first visit seems to be a confusing mixture of structures and rooms unlike any church. This pilgrim’s guide shows each phase of the Tomb of Christ and Golgotha from the first century through the Crusader Era using illustrations by Valerie Woelfel, which are drawn as though the viewer is standing in the courtyard of the current church looking at the entrance. Valerie has also drawn several map diagrams of the different phases of Jerusalem from an aerial perspective to help the pilgrim understand the changes over the many centuries. Each chapter has a very brief synopsis about the illustration, followed by a fuller description of each of the following eras:

  • The time of Christ
  • The time of the Roman Emperor Hadrian
  • The time of Constantine
  • The time of the Crusaders

This booklet emphasizes the continuity of pilgrimage to this holy site and encourages the reader to enter into the experience as though this place belonged to them.

In the Logos edition, all Scripture passages in A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Holy Sepulchre and Golgotha in Jerusalem are tagged, appear on mouseover, and link to your favorite Bible translation in your library. With Logos’ advanced features, you can perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “Golgotha” or “Hebrews 13:12.”
