This comprehensive work on the Via Dolorosa details the stages of Christís trial, describes the characters and mentions the landmarks which today recall the words and actions of Christ as he proceeded along the Way of the Cross. The Stations of the Cross in Jerusalem is intended for pilgrims and other visitors to Jerusalem. The volume supplies a more intelligible account of the origin, meaning and development of the pious practice than is included in most Holy Land guidebooks. While the exact locations of some sites have been lost to time, the real importance is the spiritual journey and the attempt to enter into the thoughts of Jesus as he carried his Cross through the streets of Jerusalem on the first Good Friday. Lavishly detailed, The Stations of the Cross in Jerusalem gives an account of the 14 stations, explains the relevant prayers to be recited at each, and includes 22 full-color pages.
