Description

It seems that most Christians understood the New Jerusalem and God´s physical presence eschatologically in a heavenly manner. However, with the Christianization of the Empire, there is a shift in perspective. “The” holy place is identified with the earthly Jerusalem. My Paper investigates this shift in eschatological interpretation in light of the construction of the church of the Holy Sepulchre comparing Origen and Eusebius of Ceasarea.
