Saving The Holy Sepulchre

Three major Christian traditions - Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, and Armenian Orthodox - each with jealously guarded claims to the church, struggled to restore one of the great shrines of civilization. It almost didn't happen. For centuries the communities had lived together in an atmosphere of tension and mistrust based on differences of theology, language, and culture. This tells the story of how it finally came together on the eve of Pope Paul VI's historic visit to the Holy Land in 1964.
