These are some clips of some filming I was able to do in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. This is a church that was first built between the years 326 and 335 AD by the Roman emperor Constantine as the suggestion of his mother St. Helena. It was destroyed by Fatimid sultan Hakim in 1009 and rebuilt by the Byzantine emperor Constantine Monomachus in the 1040’s. It was further enlarged by the Crusaders between 1114 and 1170. It suffered a disastrous fire in 1808 and an earthquake in 1927, and has since had extensive repairs.
The small service at the beginning of the film is taking place just outside the tomb of Christ.
