The Living Jerusalem
Ivan Benda: Liwing Jerusalem. 2003. Budapest Wherever he might be in the world, London or Beijing, Haifa or New York, Budapest or Cape Town, a Jew, when he wants to go to the City, will say: I’m going up to Jerusalem. I ask you to follow his example. Let’s open this impressive book and walk slowly up to Ivan Benda’s Jerusalem, which seems close to us on the pages, yet is as far as the sky. Through effort and goodwill and above all, through love, we can bring this sky closer to our profane world. He, who took these photographs shows us Jews, Christians and Muslims the path to follow. by László Csorba

Golgotha Chapel.
Golgotha Chapel. Church of the Holy Sepulchre. – The Golgotha of today, accessible by step steps, has two chapels side by side, one Roman Catholic and the other Greek Orthodox. On the Roman side are two Stations: where Jesus was stripped of his garments and where he was nailed to the cross. On the Greek side, the 12th Station: where Jesus died on the cross. Under the altar can be seen the top of the rocky outcrop with a silver market where it is believed the cross stood. In between two is the Stabat Mater (Sorrowful Mother) in remembrance of Mary’s agony at her son’s death.

The original arch had three parts> the largest, central arch which spans the Via Dolorosa, the left arch which is no longer in existence, and the right arc that can still be seen today inside the Church of the Sisters of Zion.
