The renovation in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre aims to reinforce and conserve the structure.

But Helena was an archaeologist.

And the second pilgrim to the "Holy Land".

Looks like the turnstiles are still working.

the fabrication of the Christians is a fiction of men composed by wickedness. "
