Notes on the Geography of Israel: Israel and the West Bank, 2019: Photo 46
The church here was consecrated in 335, but what can you expect? It was destroyed in 614, rebuilt, damaged again and ordered destroyed in 1009. It was rebuilt again but this time only with the Resurrection Rotunda, which stands just west of the former church, which was never rebuilt. The dome collapsed in 1807 and was rebuilt in an Ottoman style, which was subsequently restored in 1868 and again in the 1980s. Is it new or is it old? Hard to say. Maybe new in tangible fact and old in atmosphere or--can we use the word?--aura.
Under that dome, the Franciscans rebuilt the Aedicule that stands over Christ's supposed tomb, but it too has been modified over the centuries, most recently in 2017.
