Insight into the Church of the Holy Sepulchre Model

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem can be currently found in model form in the Welcome to Jerusalem exhibition. We have the special opportunity of discovering the model’s details with Dr. Ing. Karl Schmitt-Korte.

Thanks to his collecting passion, he has come to possess a unique model of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre that provides an authentic view of this church in the days of the crusaders. The true-to-scale architectural model can be taken apart to reveal impressive perspectives.

Model of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre: Large models of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, elaborately worked from variously colored woods and with inlays of bone or mother-of-pearl, were expensive gifts and souvenirs for well-heeled pilgrims. Jerusalem or Bethlehem, 17th century, dark wood, mother-of-pearl, bone; Dr. Karl Schmitt-Korte, Frankfürt / M;

Dr. Karl Schmitt-Korte will allow us exclusive insights into the interior of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The chapel in particular, which was built over the remains of the actual rock tomb, and the so-called aedicula come to light through the model.
