Here's what they found there ... - Tricks of life - Mediaplatform Mirtessen

Just the other day there was an event that made the hearts of hundreds of millions of people all over the world occurred. For some, it may seem insignificant, but believe me - this is not an ordinary topic. We are talking about the Christian faith and the Son of God, who accepted the death in the atonement of the sins of human.

So, in Jerusalem, archaeologists removed the marble slab from the funeral bed of Christ in the church of the Mernel of the Lord, which was set back in the distant XVI century. National Geographic reports that marble was put in 1555 and since then did not raise ...

"We were surprised by the abundance of a stone material under the stove. It is required to conduct a lot of studies before we see and study the original surface of the stone, on which the body of Christ restned three days. " , "Says the archaeologist of the National Geographical Society Fredrik Hibert.

According to the Christian faith, the body of Jesus Christ rests on the stone burial bed in the limestone cave after the collapse of the Romans in 30 or 33 years.

The Globe of the Lord is concluded in Kuvuklia - a dome chapel of yellow-pink marble. Because of the earthquake of 1927, only a part of the walls of the cave and entrance are preserved from it, so the steel beams and screeds are installed outside.

In Kuvuklia, the restoration is currently being restored, which is planned to be completed by the spring of 2017. During the upcoming research, scientists plan to find out from which the original surface was consisted, on which, according to Scripture, the body of Jesus Christ broke through three days.

Analysis of the initial rocks will allow scientists to study the burial place in detail. They will not only be able to know the original form of the tomb, but also find out why the Holy Elena, who spent the excavations in Jerusalem, decided that Christ was buried here. Here is a small video from how it was.

It is worth noting that such an event is also important and because usually the churchmen do not let anyone in their relics, and therefore the case is truly out of the series. Do not forget to share this fact with others!

Remember, we somehow discussed this topic:

Fire on Orthodox Easter - Hand Dexterity or ...

And the other day I read the news across all the media that archaeologists showed an autopsy of the tomb of Jesus Christ, which is located in the church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old Town of Jerusalem. This happened for the first time since the middle of the XVI century.

However, there is little refineed, and why all this?

The Globe of the Lord in Jerusalem is the most revered shrine of the Christian world. Christians believe that the body of a crucified Jesus Christ was resting on the stone slab, stored here. The plate (bed) of a size of 2 x 0.8 meters was in the cave carved in the rock - this is how the Jews were buried the dead in the first century of our era. Read the places associated with the crucifix and the burial of Christ began the first Christians.

In 326, Elena Elena, revered by many Christian churches as holy now, took a pilgrimage on Calvary. As a result of the excavations conducted under her leadership, the cave with burial was discovered. Among other finds, the cross, on which, as the August believed (and after it, Christians of the whole world, were crucified by Jesus Christ, four nails and signs (Title) with the inscription Iesus Nazarenus Rex iudaeorum, that is, "Jesus Nazaryanin, King Jewish". According to the new Testament, Titlo to the cross personally pinned Pondi Pilate. Elena laid around the Lodge of the Temple (Kuvuklia), where Christian pilgrims began to flow from around the world. The temple looked like a dome marble chapel.

The Merrian Coffin is the Jewish Tomb of the Second Temple period in the natural rock. The body of Christ was put on the stone burial bed with dimensions of 200 per 80 cm and the floor height of 60 cm. It is a dashest stone slabs.

The premises premises to this day in Kuvuklia symbolizes the cave in which the body of Christ was buried. Until our days, only the bed itself, part of the walls of the cave and part of the entrance are preserved. The former cave was destroyed in 1009.

The holy bed closed the marble slab to protect from pilgrims, striving to break and carry a part of the relic. The current plate is put in 1555, and since then the slab has never been removed. However, according to legend, one attempt was still undertaken: Muslims wanted to take a marble slab to decorate a mosque. But as soon as they tried to move it, the crack was discovered. Her sudden appearance stopped Muslims, and the stove remained in place.

The right to send Christian and Jewish worship in the temple laid by Elena, became a powerful political tool of the Middle Ages. The territory of Calvary moved many times from hand to hand, from the Byzantine emperors to the Arab rulers and back. In 1009, the chapel destroyed the Caliph al-Khakim B-Amr Alla; European Christians used this event as one of the main propaganda tools during the organization of the first crusade. Crusaders built a new temple around the bed, while retaining the chapels.

After that, Christians could freely hold rites and services near the coffin of the Lord even during the periods when Jerusalem passed into the hands of Arab conquerors. During the earthquake of 1545, the sanctuary suffered greatly, and then the burial bed closed the marble slab. Which has never been raised since then. Seriously restoring the temple took up only in the XIX century (then they restored Kuvuklia St. Helena), but the new earthquake in 1927 again destroyed the structure around the bed. After the Second World War, a large-scale restoration of the entire temple complex began, which prevailed for the century of construction and destruction, but then the plate hiding the bed remained in place.

And only in 2016, archaeologists came to an agreement with the six churches: Greco-Orthodox, Catholic, Armenian, Coptic, Syrian and Ethiopian, to remove the slab from the tomb and explore the burial bed. The main question to which the specialists will have to be answered, it sounds like this: why did Elena decide that it was here that the body of a crucified Christ was resting?

"The marble slab was shifted, and we surprised us a large amount of stone material under it," said Fredrik Hibert's research participant from the National Geographical Society. According to him, it is necessary to "long scientific analysis, but we will finally be able to see the original surface of the stone, which, according to legend, was the body of Christ."

Scientists note that the analysis of the initial breed can give them the opportunity to determine the original form of the tomb, as well as the history of the formation of the object as one of the main symbols of Christianity.

Scientists hope that the work will help to open the curtain of the mystery over how Holy Elena is the mother of Emperor Konstantin - found out that this cave is the coffin of the Lord and want to restore the initial type of tombs.

Work on the restoration of the Holy Sepulcher is planned to be completed by the spring of 2017. The total amount of financial expenses will exceed four million dollars. Restoration funds donated including the king of Jordan Abdullah II.

All manipulations scientists are recorded on video. It is assumed that on this material later the documentary film film will be mounted. In the meantime, only one passage was laid out on the network, on which the manipulation of the lifting of the slab was captured.

Recently, in the media, there has been a special activity around the question of the restoration of the Kuvuklia of the Merry Coffin, held in Jerusalem. In general information flow, you can see very bold publications about the allegedly former Jerusalem signs - troping angels and supernatural phenomena in the sky, which is frankly false information bags, since such phenomena actually did not have space.

Since in the church community there is still different doubts, we would like living and serving directly in Jerusalem to help our readers correctly arrange emphasis on this issue, realizing that these doubts are naturally born from a lack of adequate information.

However, before we proceed to present the facts, it is necessary to agree on the terms, since their proper understanding depends on the correct designation of things. We need to clearly understand that restoration work in Kuvuklia can not be called "opening the coffin" in principle. The term "opening of the coffin" gives rise to involuntary associations with an invasion of a kind of sacred inviolable region and even with desecration. And if in other cases it can be true in relation to the tombs storing human remains, then no extent can be extrapolated to the burial bed of Christ - there is simply no tomb in the usual understanding, as a place that makes human dust. The tomb of Christ is empty - Christ is risen, "Praise Zea, seite, I look at it" (MK. 16, 6).

Thus, we are not talking about the "opening of the coffin of the Lord", but about temporary removal from the funeral bed of Christ the marble plates who defended him from the vandalism of pilgrims.

Moreover, if this would not have been done today and the stone of the funeral bed and the surrounding rocks, which is elementary to the foundation of Kuvuklia built on it, would not be carefully strengthened with modern means, the process of destruction of the rocky foundation of Kuvuklia would be irreversible.

Note that this is far from the first time, due to the need for construction or restoration work in Kuvuklia, the burial bed of Christ was temporarily freed from the closing architectural elements.

So, as is known, on October 26, 2016, in Kuvuklia, the Mero Polychnical University in Jerusalem Specialists under the leadership of Professor A. Moropulu were removed marble plates, closing the burial bed of Lord Jesus Christ from above. The works were carried out in the presence of the Patriarch of Jerusalem Ferofila, representatives of the Franciscan bust of the Holy Land and the Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem.

Note that neither the representatives of church circles nor the scientific community were kept in the secrecy of information about these works. Moreover, full, lengthy, illustrated Restoration work reports are published on

The official website of the Jerusalem Patriarchate

who has including

Russian-speaking version

.

According to reports, the removal of plates over the stone lie was dictated by the technical necessity to ensure the safety of the bed and the surrounding cliffs of the Mernel of the Lord.

According to studies conducted before the start of restoration work, the main problem of Kuvuklia was that this construction, being too heavy, stamped under his own weight, at the same time destroying the coffin of the Mernel, which consists of soft and fragile limestone and is a foundation for Kuvuklia.

It is also known that the conservation of Kuvuklia received serious damage to earthquakes, very frequent in the region, and as a result of a destructive fire that was in the Church of the Resurrection of Christ in 1808. Also, it is impossible to go around the attention and negative impact of the increased concentration of moisture inside Kuvuklia and serious problems with the drainage system located at the base of this structure.

According to experts, at the beginning of 2016, the problems of the supporting structures of Kuvuklia demanded an urgent decision, otherwise their negative consequences for the construction and its shrines are the cliffs of the Mernel of the Lord - would be irreversible.

Those who are interested in more detailed information about the state of the Kuvuklia, the tasks and difficulties of restoration work, we recommend contacting the reports published on the website of the Jerusalem Patriarchate. Without stopping in these details in detail, we will immediately move on to the question of the need to free the funeral bed of Christ from the closing marble plates during work in Kuvuklia.

To ensure the safety of the coffin cliff and erected Kuvuklia at the final stage of the restoration, it was necessary to homogenize the stone masonry and the rock formation by the method of injection of a special building solution into existing emptiness and cracks. For this, a cementless lime-pozzolan composition was used, which is characterized by a small particle size, high fluidity and ability to expand in a plastic state, thus ensuring that even the smallest emails will be filled.

It is for the examination of the founding of Kuvuklia - the coffin cliffs of the Lord - on the subject of cracks and voids, and then the correct injection of the fastening solution and it was necessary to temporarily remove the marble plates covering the beds of Christ, as well as marble wall cladding inside the funeral camera of Kuvuklia.

It is important to note that by removing the marble slabs, the scientists have made sure that under them is a genuine burial bed of Jesus Christ, carved inside the rocky burial cave and is one of the rolling. The distance from the surface of the top plate, which is seen by pilgrims, is approximately 35 centimeters to this stone lodge.

The work described above was completed on October 28, fully restoration of Kuvuklia is planned to be completed for Easter 2017.

In the coming days, the video of the Russian spiritual mission prepared by the press service of the Russian spiritual mission will be interviewed, which contains an interview about the restoration work in the Kuvuklia of the Holy Sepulcher with the Blessed Patriarch of Jerusalem Food.

During the restoration of the main Christian shrine in Jerusalem, the marble slab was opened, which closed the coffin of the Lord almost half of the Millennium. What secrets keep the burial place of Jesus Christ and why the actions of archaeologists approve of the Patriarch of Jerusalem Ferofil III, in the material "Renta.ru".

The marble slab was installed on the burial bed of the Merry Coffin in 1555 by Franciscan Bonifazie Raguzsky to protect the shrine from those who wanted to carry a part of the relic. Pilgrims tried to tear off a piece of chapel, thereby destroying it.

Archaeologist National Geographical Society Fredrik Hiebert said that this is only the beginning of research and still have a lot of work with the tomb. "When the slab was removed, we were surprised by the abundance of the stone material under it. It is required to conduct a lot of studies before we see and study the original surface of the stone, on which the body of Christ restned three days, "Hibert said.

According to the Christian faith, the body of Jesus Christ rests on the stone burial bed in the limestone cave after the collapse of the Romans in 30 or 33 years. The Coffin of the Lord is concluded in Kuvuklia - a dome chapel of yellow-pink marble in the center of the Church of the Church of the Resurrection of Christ Six to eight eight meters. Because of the 1927 earthquake, only a part of the walls of the cave and the entrance were preserved, so the steel beams and tie are installed outside.

In Kuvuklia, restoration work is held, which are planned to be completed in the spring of 2017. Back in 2015, the Jerusalem Patriarch, with the consent of the heads of the two other communities, suggested that the National Technical University of Athens learn Kuvuklia. The restoration was agreed in March 2016 and is held under the guidance of a specialist in preserving monuments and building materials Antonio Maropeol. The budget of the work performed exceeds four billion dollars, one of the sponsors is the king of Jordan Abdullah II.

"We are experiencing a critical moment in the history of Kuvuklia. We use special methods to documen this unique moment and allow everyone to learn the results of our work in the future, to find out what was in the grave of Christ, "Maropolo said before opening the coffin of the Lord.

Space the cave in which Jesus was buried, Emperor Konstantin I commanded in the IV century. His mother, Flavia Yulia Elena Augustus made a pilgrimage in Jerusalem in 326. It is believed that the Merrator's coffin, a life-giving cross and other Christian relics were discovered. In the work of the Roman historian IV century, Eusevia, Kaesarian "Life of Constantine", it is said that the pagan temple of the Romans stood over the cave.

The first Kuvuklia was erected in 335. In the 1009th Muslim destroyed it, and in the middle of the XI century, the shrine was revived by order of the Byzantine emperor Konstantin IX Monomakh. In 1555, Kuvuklia rebuilt the Franciscan of Boniface Raguzsky, but in 1808 it destroyed it a fire.

In 1809-1810, Kuvuklia was restored - according to the draft Greek architect Nikolai Comin from Mitilini. During the restoration, the dimensions of Kuvuklia-similarity from the Resurrection Novojerusalem Monastery near Moscow (registration of architect Bartolomeo Rastrelli) were used. The temple is divided between six confessions of the Christian Church: Greco-Orthodox, Catholic, Armenian, Coptic, Syrian and Ethiopian, each of which has its own feathers and watches for prayers.

"There is a special atmosphere here, felt grace. We are under the protection of Franciscan, Armenian, Greek, Muslim Guards and European police officers. We hope and pray that there will be God's message and the impossible will be possible. We all need peace and mutual respect, "said Patriarch Jerusalem Ferofil III.

Analysis of the initial rocks will allow scientists to study in detail the burial place of Jesus Christ. They will not only be able to know the original form of the tomb, but also find out why the Holy Elena, who spent the excavations in Jerusalem, decided that Christ was buried here. This is especially important because the representatives of the Church are extremely rarely going towards scientists and give permission to study religious artifacts and monuments.

"The Internet blew a sensation in the days: for the first time in half a thousandth, the tomb of Christ was opened. The headlines were intriguing, although it is not clear: what hope to find archaeologists - after all, not Christ?"

Ravil

Ravil, Hello! Let's deal with together.

Great death and burial

All four Gospels report about the tomb of Jesus. Here, convicted to death through a crucifixion, Jesus carries his cross on Calvary - "frontal place", where, hovering horror on all passing, in terrible flour ended the life of the executed. The skulls of the unfortunate, coded from the ground, and gave the name to the sinister place. It is known that the sufferings of Christ on the cross lasted about 6 hours, which surprised Pilate: Usually the torment of crucified stretched several days, until death fell - more often from Asphyxia (choking), although the guards, seeking to free themselves, accelerated the execution, interrupting the crucified shin. The executed lurished the point of the support and chuckled - instantly. This time, when the Roman Sotnik interrupted the legs with two still live robbers, crucified next to Christ, the Savior was already dead. Theologian, relying on the experience of doctors, conclude: Christ did not stand the heart. Did not stand the suffering? "Father!" Prayed crucified on the cross for those who crucified him, "forgive them, for they do not know what they do!" Evangelist John, Witness Crashing, standing at the cross, describes the last minutes of Jesus: "said: Made! And the chapter premounced, I betrayed the Spirit."

Archaeologists have revealed that the Merrator's Coffin has been preserved intact

This is what the Further in the Gospel of Matthew. "When the evening came, a rich man came from Arimafia, named Joseph, who also studied at Jesus; he, having come to Pilate, asked the body of Jesus. Then Pilate ordered the body; and, taking the body, Joseph wrapped his pure payside and put it. In his new coffin, which he carved in the rock. " Evangelicals report that those who came to the tomb on Sunday, that is, three days after the burial, no one was found there - Christ was resurrected. And this, Ravil, and there is a main sensation of all times and peoples.

How did you find the tomb of Christ

According to the testimony of St. Cyril Jerusalem, the first Christians reverectively belonged to everything that was associated with the Savior. But in 70, the Roman Emperor Tit destroys Jerusalem. And pagans that settled the city do everything to be discharged and erased from the face of the Earth, associated with Jesus. So the type of Calvary was changed. Historian IV c. Eusevia reports that the cave, in which the body of Christ was buried, specifically fell asleep with garbage, the mound was dismissed by a stone and the altar of the goddess of Svalaste the Venus was erected on this "foundation". If we take into account that the territory of the Emperor Adrian (II century. N.E.), completely destroyed by the title of Jerusalem, built a newly, remove the pagan caps, it will become clear why it was not easy to find the burial place.

Its acquisition occurred in 326, during the reign of the first Christian emperor Konstantin Great. This Roman ruler managed not only to win the brilliant victories, uniting the huge Roman Empire into one of the whole, but also stop the persecution of Christians. According to legend, the emperor in a thin dream saw the cross, at which Christ was crucified, - the cross of the Lord, and it strengthened him before the decisive battle. After the victory, Konstantin caught fire to find the shrine. On her searches in Jerusalem, Konstantin - Queen Elena is sent. Exquisitions were crowned with success: Tsaritsa Elena pointed out a small hill from the Earth, garbage and stones - it was here that in the command of the Roman emperor Adrian erected in honor of Venus. When the pagan idol was completely destroyed when the garbage was scattered and started the land, participating in search of seeing that the sobl of the Mernel and the Resurrection of Christ were in front of them. According to legend, Tsaritsa Elena discovered both the "frontal place", where Jesus was crucified along with two robbers. Next to Calvary and found three crosses, nails and a table with an inscription in three languages. Yes, as you know from the gospel, was attached to the cross, on which Christ crucified, and the inscription was made on it: "Jesus Norazhai, King Jewish". According to the Gospel of John, after the crucifixion of Christ, "many of the Jews read this inscription, because the place where Jesus was crucified was not far from the city, and it was written in Jewish, in Greek, in Roman." But how to determine which of the three crosses found cross the Lord? A miracle helped: According to the historian VI in. Feofan Byzantine, from one of the found crosses he was healing the patient, which was the proof that this is the cross, on which Jesus was crucified. Having found and Calvary, and the Cross of the Lord, and the Tomb of Christ, Tsarina Elena, as the historian V in. Socolastik Socolatik, "offered to create an extreme prayer house at the site of the tomb." So the temple of the Mernel's coffin was built. Today, this is a huge architectural complex, covered by himself, including Calvary, and Kuvuklia (literally from the Greek "Peace, Overvaluity") - a chapel in the center of the temple, erected precisely over the cave of the coffin.

Fires, earthquakes, raids of enemies and pilgrims

Restoration work is carried out so as not to keep the pilgrims to see the shrine. A photo: YouTube.com.

The Merrator Coffin is typical Jewish tomb of the second temple period in the natural rock. The body of Christ was put on the stone burial bed (200-80 cm, the height from the floor is 60 cm) according to the Jewish custom legs to the east, that is, to the entrance, head west. The first chapel - Kuvukia, covered by the cave of the tomb of Christ, erected by the Treaty of the Tsaritsa Elena in 335, was completely destroyed by Muslims in 1009. Secondary Kuvuklia rebuilt in 1042-1048. Byzantine emperor Konstantin Monomakh, in the XII century. She was updated Crusaders. Russian Igumen Daniel described in the XII century. Merrian's coffin: "This is a small cave carved in a stone, with small doors, through which can, becoming knees, enter the person ... And when you enter this cave through the small doors, on the right hand - as if the bench carved in that The cave stone: on that bench lay the body of our Lord Jesus Christ. Now the holy bench is covered with marble plates. " In 1555, Kuvuklia was rebuilt, and in 1808 it destroyed fire. Restored in 1810, she again suffered - already from the earthquake of 1927, and today it is reinforced outside from the sides with steel beams and tie.

Oddly enough, the damage to the shrine also caused numerous pilgrims who sought to break down and carry a part of the relic. To prevent these attempts, the bed closed the white marble slab. The current plate was put in 1555, it was it that archaeologists opened it on October 26.

Under the sight of video cameras

In 2015, the Jerusalem Patriarch, with the consent of the heads of the two other communities, proposed the National Technical University of Athens to explore Kuvuklia. The restoration was agreed in March 2016, and it is conducted under the supervision of 7 camcorders. On October 26, archaeologists removed the slab from the coffin of the Lord, installed in 1555. Under the stove, they found a layer of stone fragments, and under it another marble slab - with a cross-cut on the surface of the cross. It is assumed that the second plate was laid during crusades. To the amazement of archaeologists, the very burial bed itself, found under the second stove, turned out to be untouched. And this is despite the fact that the walls of the cave in which it was located were destroyed together with the initial building of the temple of the Holy Sepulcher in 1009. Archaeologists raised the second slab to the surface to clean and digitize. "It's absolutely striking. I'm trembling my knees, because I did not expect such things ... We cannot talk with one hundred percent confidence, but at first glance, there are clear evidence that the tomb was not injured for all this time," says Archaeologist Fredrik Hibert. Restoration works are planning to complete in the spring of 2017, before the Easter holiday: after all, it is in Kuvuklia above the coffin of the Lord every year there is a miracle - the alignment of the fertilous fire. And for millions of believers, this is the proof of the authenticity of the shrine.

At the end of October 2016, archaeologists showed an autopsy of the tomb of Jesus Christ, which is located in the Temple of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old Town of Jerusalem (Israel).

This happened for the first time since the mid-XVI century, reports The International Business Times.

Why did scientists wait for so long, and what prompted them to open the tomb in 2016?

Story

The Globe of the Lord in Jerusalem is the most revered shrine of the Christian world. Christians believe that on a stone slab stored here, 3 days resting the body of a crucified Jesus Christ. The plate (bed) measuring 2 x 0.8 meters was in the cave carved in the rock - this is exactly how the Jews buried the dead in the first century of our era, writes "Popular Mechanics".

In 326, Empress Elena, revered now by many Christian churches as a holy pilgrimage on Calvary. As a result of the excavations conducted under her leadership, the cave with burial and a cross were found, on which Christians suggest, Jesus Christ was crucified, 4 nails and a sign with the inscription: Iesus Nazarenus Rex iudaeorum ("Jesus Nazarenin, Tsar Jewsky"). Elena laid around the Lodge of the Temple, where Christian pilgrims began to flow from around the world. The temple looked like a dome marble chapel.

The premises in the temple preserved to this day symbolizes the cave in which the body of Christ was buried. Now there is a bed itself, a part of the walls of the cave and part of the entrance. The former cave was destroyed in 1009.

The right to send Christian and Jewish worship in the temple laid by Elena, became a powerful political tool of the Middle Ages. The territory of Calvary moved many times from hand to hand, from the Byzantine emperors to the Arab rulers - and back.

During the earthquake of 1545, the sanctuary suffered greatly, after which the burial bed was closed by a marble slab to protect against pilgrims who wish to carry a piece of relics.

The purpose of scientists

The restoration of the temple was engaged only in the XIX century, but the new earthquake in 1927 again destroyed the structure around the bed. After the Second World War, a large-scale restoration of the entire temple complex began, which prevailed for the century of construction and destruction, but then the plate hiding the bed remained in place.

And only in 2016, archaeologists came to an agreement with 6 churches: Greco-Orthodox, Catholic, Armenian, Coptic, Syrian and Ethiopian, to remove the slab from the tomb and explore the burial bed.

The main question to which the specialists will have to be answered, it sounds like this: why did Elena decide that it was here that the body of a crucified Christ was resting?

Recently, in the media, there has been a special activity around the question of the restoration of the Kuvuklia of the Merry Coffin, held in Jerusalem. In general information flow, you can see very bold publications about the allegedly former Jerusalem signs - troping angels and supernatural phenomena in the sky, which is frankly false information bags, since such phenomena actually did not have space.

Since in the church community there is still different doubts, we would like living and serving directly in Jerusalem to help our readers correctly arrange emphasis on this issue, realizing that these doubts are naturally born from a lack of adequate information.

However, before we proceed to present the facts, it is necessary to agree on the terms, since their proper understanding depends on the correct designation of things. We need to clearly understand that restoration work in Kuvuklia can not be called "opening the coffin" in principle. The term "opening of the coffin" gives rise to involuntary associations with an invasion of a kind of sacred inviolable region and even with desecration. And if in other cases it can be true in relation to the tombs storing human remains, then no extent can be extrapolated to the burial bed of Christ - there is simply no tomb in the usual understanding, as a place that makes human dust. The tomb of Christ is empty - Christ is risen, "Take the place, the place, the idea of ​​putting it" (MK. 16, 6).

Thus, we are not talking about the "opening of the coffin of the Lord", but about temporary removal from the funeral bed of Christ the marble plates who defended him from the vandalism of pilgrims.

Moreover, if this would not have been done today and the stone of the funeral bed and the surrounding rocks, which is elementary to the foundation of Kuvuklia built on it, would not be carefully strengthened with modern means, the process of destruction of the rocky foundation of Kuvuklia would be irreversible.

Note that this is far from the first time, due to the need for construction or restoration work in Kuvuklia, the burial bed of Christ was temporarily freed from the closing architectural elements.

So, as is known, on October 26, 2016, in Kuvuklia, the Mero Polychnical University in Jerusalem Specialists under the leadership of Professor A. Moropulu were removed marble plates, closing the burial bed of Lord Jesus Christ from above. The works were carried out in the presence of the Patriarch of Jerusalem Ferofila, representatives of the Franciscan bust of the Holy Land and the Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem.

    

Note that neither the representatives of church circles nor the scientific community were kept in the secrecy of information about these works. Moreover, full, lengthy, illustrated restation reports are published on the official website of the Jerusalem Patriarchate ( http://www.jp-newsgate.net/ru 24016/07/21/30664#more-30664 и http://www.jp-newsgate.net/en/2016/10/07/26922#more-26922. ), which has, among other things, the Russian-speaking version.

According to reports, the removal of plates over the stone lie was dictated by the technical necessity to ensure the safety of the bed and the surrounding cliffs of the Mernel of the Lord.

According to studies conducted before the start of restoration work, the main problem of Kuvuklia was that this construction, being too heavy, stamped under his own weight, at the same time destroying the coffin of the Mernel, which consists of soft and fragile limestone and is a foundation for Kuvuklia.

It is also known that the conservation of Kuvuklia received serious damage to earthquakes, very frequent in the region, and as a result of a destructive fire that was in the Church of the Resurrection of Christ in 1808. Also, it is impossible to go around the attention and negative impact of the increased concentration of moisture inside Kuvuklia and serious problems with the drainage system located at the base of this structure.

According to experts, at the beginning of 2016, the problems of the supporting structures of Kuvuklia demanded an urgent decision, otherwise their negative consequences for the construction and its shrines are the cliffs of the Mernel of the Lord - would be irreversible.

Those who are interested in more detailed information about the state of the Kuvuklia, the tasks and difficulties of restoration work, we recommend contacting the reports published on the website of the Jerusalem Patriarchate. Without stopping in these details in detail, we will immediately move on to the question of the need to free the funeral bed of Christ from the closing marble plates during work in Kuvuklia.

To ensure the safety of the coffin cliff and erected Kuvuklia at the final stage of the restoration, it was necessary to homogenize the stone masonry and the rock formation by the method of injection of a special building solution into existing emptiness and cracks. For this, a cementless lime-pozzolan composition was used, which is characterized by a small particle size, high fluidity and ability to expand in a plastic state, thus ensuring that even the smallest emails will be filled.

It is for the examination of the founding of Kuvuklia - the coffin cliffs of the Lord - on the subject of cracks and voids, and then the correct injection of the fastening solution and it was necessary to temporarily remove the marble plates covering the beds of Christ, as well as marble wall cladding inside the funeral camera of Kuvuklia.

It is important to note that by removing the marble slabs, the scientists have made sure that under them is a genuine burial bed of Jesus Christ, carved inside the rocky burial cave and is one of the rolling. The distance from the surface of the top plate, which is seen by pilgrims, is approximately 35 centimeters to this stone lodge.

The work described above was completed on October 28, fully restoration of Kuvuklia is planned to be completed for Easter 2017.

In the coming days, the video of the Russian spiritual mission prepared by the press service of the Russian spiritual mission will be interviewed, which contains an interview about the restoration work in the Kuvuklia of the Holy Sepulcher with the Blessed Patriarch of Jerusalem Food.
