Trip Planner: Asia / Israel / Jerusalem District / Jerusalem / Church of Condemnation and Flagellation.
The Church of the Condemnation and Imposition of the Cross is a Roman Catholic church located within the Franciscan compound that also contains the Church of the Flagellation in the old city of Jerusalem.TraditionIt marks the traditional spot where Jesus took up his cross after being sentenced to crucifixion.However, this tradition is based on the mistaken assumption that on an area of Roman flagstones, discovered beneath the building and beneath the adjacent Convent of the Sisters of Zion, was the pavement (Greek: lithostratos) which the Bible describes as the location of Pontius Pilate's judgment of Jesus; archaeological investigation now indicates that these slabs are the paving of the eastern of two 2nd century Forums, built by Hadrian as part of the construction of Aelia Capitolina. The site of the Forum had previously been a large open-air pool, the Strouthion Pool, which was constructed by the Hasmoneans, is mentioned by Josephus as being adjacent to the Fortress in the first century, and is still present beneath Hadrian's flagstones; the traditional scene would require that everyone was walking on water.Use our Jerusalem route planner to add Church of Condemnation and Flagellation. and other attractions to your Jerusalem vacation plans.

Also included in this complex are the Franciscan monastery of the Flagelation, and the Church of the Condemnation and Imposition of the Cross. According to tradition, the Church recalls the place where some Christians believe that Jesus Christ was flogged by Roman soldiers before his journey down the Via Dolorosa to Calvary. This small chapel (only has 42 square meters) has a column of pink jasper in the center that symbolizes the pillar where Christ was tied to suffer torture in the original Pilate Palace in Jerusalem.
Solo il pensiero che li sia stato flagellato Gesù mette i brividi. Stazione di sosta per quanto riguarda la Via Crucis dolorosa. La chiesa è molto carina. Belle le vetrate e suggestivo il soffitto con... more »Only the thought that Jesus has been scourged there is the chills. Stop station regarding the painful Way of the Cross. The church is very nice. Beautiful stained glass windows and suggestive ceiling with crown of thorns in the center with peach flowers inside. Nice even the multimedia museum nearby them!
We traveled to our Holy Land, The State of Israel, on a journey of faith and were delighted to visit the Church of Condemnation and Imposition of the Cross... The Temple Esplanade: a garden plaza containing many varied structures such as paved platforms, domes, prayer niches, fountains and arcades.
Church's unique architecture has five white domes at the top. You'll also notice the strained stones used in construction to ensure visitors don't slip while walking.
