The Wider Image: Walking in the Lord's footsteps in Jerusalem's Holy Sepulchre
It is three o'clock in the morning and Armenian Orthodox cleric Artak Tadevosyan is wafting incense through the corridors of Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the site where Christians believe Jesus Christ was crucified and buried. "Walking in the Lord's footsteps, really, you have feelings that cannot be explained," said the 26-year-old deacon. "We don't see it as stone, all these are holy places for us." The Holy Sepulchre lies in Jerusalem's Old City. A church was first built there in the 4th century under Constantine the Great, the Roman emperor who converted to Christianity. Today, the Greek Orthodox, Armenian Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches share custody of the building and tensions sometimes run high over who controls what.
