Church.es In Jerusiten.
A notable structure in Jerusalem is the
Church of the Holy Sepulere, the most cos
mopitan church in the world. This re
mnurkable building covers a curious aggre
gate of traditionary and legendary sacred
mites, including several connected with Jew

Lions which are most worthy of our attention,
as will soon appear. Its real llstory begins
with Helena, the mother of Constantine the
Creat, because it was her zeal which led to
the supposed idenitification of the place
where Christ was cruc :tled and buried. Over
the spot thus idetiitled a splendid church
was built. and dedicated in A. A'885. Its
subsequent fortunes correspond ety much
with those of the city; but it was specially
attractive as a resort of pilgrims, who, for
lIfteen centuries, with little intermission,
have continued to visit it. The days of its
chief splendor were those of the Crusaders,
two of whose kings, Godfrey and Baldwin,
were burled there, and their tombs ronain
Lo this day. The original Church of Con
stantine and Helena was destroyed by the
Persians, restored by the Christians, de
stroyed again by the Khalif Ilakem, rebulht
again by the Christians, enlarged and beau
