The Holy Sepulcher is the tomb outside the city walls of Jerusalem where Jesus was placed between His burial and Resurrection. It was a new tomb cut out of rock, owned by Joseph of Arimathaea, who had asked Pontius Pilate for Jesus's body.

Emperor Constantine built a basilica over this tomb, and today the Church of the Holy Sepulcher stands there. Late in life, Christopher Columbus sought to win for Christianity control of that cave back from the Muslims.
