Abstract

The article aims to clarify the circumstances and chronology of the gradual loss by the Georgian Orthodox community of its possessions in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The study relies on data obtained from the inscribed stone slabs, installed inside the Resurrection Cathedral of Novy Ierusalim monastery on river Istra, west of Moscow. Assembled together, the inscribed slabs, dated to 1680-s, are forming a unique «guide book» for the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, precisely copied in the Moscovite structure of Novy Ierusalim. The text of the inscriptions is based on the famous `Itinerary' written by Russian traveler Arseny Sukhanov. In the lapidary texts, special attention is given to the confessional ownership of various chapels of the original church, alongside with a precise information regarding the changes made in Moscovite copy of the church. Epigraphic material from Novy Ierusalim, confronted with scattered literary evidence regarding the possessions upon various parts of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, brings strong evidence for Georgian ownership on the northern chapel of the church, known as `Prison of Christ', and to establish a precise chronology of this ownership.
