The New Pilgrim’s Guide to the Holy Sepulchre

The New Pilgrim’s Guide, available online at the ATS pro Terra Sancta website and in paperback from the Christian Information Center, is a very useful aid for visiting the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, simple to read yet full of details and in-depth information.

The guidebook will be of interest to both pilgrims and guides, and can help to ensure that a visit to the Holy Sepulchre, which for reasons of time often turns out to be only superficial, can instead be a well-prepared and fruitful one.

The guidebook contains numerous pictures of the Tomb itself as well as three-dimensional maps and plans, so that the pilgrim can easily identify the places that he or she will be visiting.

It is divided into three sections that focus on a tour of the site, its history, and relevant readings: it thus provides a complete overview of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The first two sections will allow the pilgrim to have a better understanding of the different historical eras which still permeate the structure of the Church. The third section, devoted to New Testament readings chosen by the Franciscan Fathers, will help the pilgrim to appreciate the profound and ultimate meaning of the site.

The new guide for pilgrims to the Holy Sepulchre is currently available in Italian, Spanish, German, Hungarian and English language versions.

Whatch it here!
