A. Digital Exhibition of Advanced Technology “Tomb of Christ: The Monument and the Project” at the Byzantine and Christian Museum
The emblematic project of the conservation and rehabilitation of the Holy Aedicule of the Holy Sepulchre in the Church of Resurrection in Jerusalem, that was successfully accomplished by the Interdisciplinary Team of the National Technical University of Athens and delivered to the three Christian Communities, Guardians of the Holy Tomb, in March 2017, is presented in the Temporary Digital Exhibition of Advanced Technology “Tomb of Christ: the Monument and the Project” at the Byzantine and Christian Museum from 21 May 2018 until 31 January 2019.
This virtual digital Exhibition consists of two parts. In the first part, data derived from the virtual Exhibition “Tomb of Christ” of the National Geographic Museum in Washington D.C. is presented, bestowed to the NTUA Interdisciplinary Team by the Curator of the NG Museum Exhibition and NGS Archaeologist, Dr. Fredrik Hiebert, and the Director of the NG Museum, Mrs Kathryn Keane. In the second part, data provided by the NTUA Interdisciplinary Team, acquired during the project and further processed and analyzed. Especially, findings that arose after the opening of the Holy Tomb for the first time after five centuries. This interactive exhibition uses new technologies and 3D models, so that the visitors can “travel in mind” to Jerusalem, the Church of Resurrection and “see in person” the monument and the rehabilitation works of the Holy Aedicule, as well as to reveal the values of the Tomb of Christ.
The exhibition is open to public from Tuesday to Sunday from 8:00 until 20:00 and on Mondays from 12:00 until 20:00.
