Welcome to our ABC Wednesday meme fun. Today is the day for D.
D is for . . . Dina?
But definitely a different Dina, not me. One who would write her name in thick black ink and add two exclamation marks!!
Believe it or not, this slab of stone was set up in the venerable Holy Sepulchre (the church consecrated in 335 and restored and rebuilt in the 11th century).
Here, and only here, on this slab, is it kosher for tourists to leave their mark for posterity.
Click on the photo to enlarge and see the scandal on the arch. Shame.
This place is at the extreme eastern part of the cavernous church, a bit out of the way.
The inner dark chamber is now called the Prison of Christ. According to a tradition dating to Crusader times, Jesus and the two thieves were held here before the crucifixion.
The outer part is the Chapel of the Bonds (or Stocks).
