Crusader High Altar

$5.00

Description

The Crusaders converted the Dome of the Rock into a church and called it Templum Domini – the Temple of the Lord. Large parts of The Rock were cut off, as the Crusaders thought (in the words of one Christian historian), that “it disfigured the Temple of the Lord”). They covered The Rock with marble slabs and stairways, and then build a high altar on it.
