CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Mount Calvary
Submit Cancel. What can you do and not do. October 30, Response from DeanMurphy Reviewed this property. There are two Golgotha locations. The "Skull Hill" at this location is simply a rock outcropping that somewhat resembles a face, not a skull. Check the TripAdvisor photos. There is what appears to be a nose. Um… Skulls don't Um… Skulls don't have noses.
Whoever promotes this "attraction" does so as a tourist trap. It can't be called Golgotha because this is not the site, the reason the name Skull Hill with Golgotha in parenthesis. Keep in mind that streets of 2k years ago are now covered by 20 feet of stone and dirt, as evidenced by the Roman Cardo--the main street. Cardo is a Latin word that means main artery, as in cardio. In fact, the Renaissance in Europe was partly inspired by stories brought back from the middle east by travelers along the trade route.
Strategic location, religious history and the world's largest supply of crude oil have kept the Middle East at the center of world activity for centuries. The saga continues. Text by Steve Smith. Toggle navigation Search. Gigapixel Gallery. Curated Sets. Mapa del mundo.

Why do most archaeologists today reject that location as the place where Jesus was crucified and buried? The Garden Tomb has been investigated by archaeologists, and it is well known today that this tomb was at least years old when Christ died. However, the peaceful setting of the Garden Tomb is infinitely more conducive to meditation than the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
Where exactly is the so-called Wailing Wall where many Jews have prayed and worshiped over the last years? It was given this name because for many years after the destruction of the temple, it was the closest to the Temple Mount that Jews could go. How many years have you spent working on the Temple Mount reconstructions? What degree of confidence do you have that what we see today in these drawings is what it looked like then? I began working on the Temple Mount excavations in , which were led by the late Prof. Benjamin Mazar, and I have been making reconstruction drawings and models of the Temple Mount ever since.
Most of my reconstructions have been published fairly recently in my book The Quest: Revealing the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. After all, nobody alive today has seen the actual Temple Mount before it was destroyed! My reconstructions are based on archaeological and historical evidence. One needs to study not only the remains in situ i. One also needs to make parallels with contemporaneous buildings and study the prevalent architectural style. Last, but not least, the study of the ancient sources, which may contain descriptions of the building before it was destroyed, is extremely valuable.
Without studying the works of Josephus and the Mishnah, one cannot hope to make an accurate reconstruction drawing of the Temple Mount. There is, of course, a certain amount of guess work involved if one tries to present a complete reconstruction of an ancient site. That guess should, however, be academically informed and not speculative.
Despite decades of work on the Temple Mount, you had never before drawn it from the northwest, showing it in relation to Golgotha.
Why not? That is true. The reason is that from the angle of view in the Golgotha drawing, one cannot today see the Temple Mount. I usually make reconstruction drawings to show what a site looked like from the most visited direction. That is why my well-known reconstruction drawing of the Temple Mount has the southwest corner in the foreground, for that is the way people approach the Temple Mount excavations.
The viewpoint of the Golgotha drawing would be located in the vicinity of the present-day New Gate at the northwest corner of the Old City.
