Holy Cross Day

I dag (14.09) feirar våre ortodokse og katolske kristne søsken ein fest for Jesu kors. Her er eit bloggnotat frå jødisk samanheng, der The Temple Mount Sifting Project viser ulike kors som er funne i restar frå tempelplassen!

Eg har eit forhold til denne festen, fordi eg for mange år sidan fekk delta i feiringa i eit gresk-ortodokst kloster. Les om klosteret og feiringa her: Klosteret i Thiva.

The Temple Mount Sifting Project

One of the amazing things about the Temple Mount is the depth of history that can be found on one site in such a small amount of space. Daily, we uncover artifacts from every time period that the site was in use: from Late Bronze Age (ok that might be weekly) through the First and Second Temple Periods, the Crusades, and the Islamic Periods through to today. The Temple Mount is a holy place for over half the world’s population and we consistently find things that connect to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

Today is Holy Cross Day/Feast of the Holy Cross/Exaltation of the Holy Cross, and so we thought we would share some of the crosses found by the Sifting Project that originated from the Temple Mount. I will let our guest blogger, Frankie Snyder, take over from here.
