By building the basilica in Jerusalem, Emperor Constantine caused a shift to take place in the lives of Christians. This shift focused on how and where Christians worshipped. They no longer gathered in a “private religious association”, but the basilica that Constantine commissioned became “a solomon civic ritual that drew larger numbers of populace into a shared public ceremony” (Wilkin, 112). Built in the Holy City, the Christian Jerusalem is described by Wilkin as a place that appears more holy because it has brought to light proof of the suffering of the Savior (Wilkin, 111). “Because a place, unlike bones, is stationary and immovable, the church had to be built at the very spot where the sacred events had occurred. This intimate bond between

Ethan Benjamin Mrs. Helbig English 10 Honors 11 April 2016 Have you met Jesus? All of the Western culture has met Jesus. Citizens of the West have grown up in a culture in which an entire month of the year is dedicated to celebrating the birth of Christ. Easter then arrives and again, for a few days, a major event in the life of Jesus of Nazareth is celebrated. Come the end of October, Westerners find themselves celebrating the eve of All Saint’s Day. On the fourth Thursday of each November, a feast the Christian immigrants, the establishers of the modern Americas, had with the local Native American tribes is reenacted at dinner tables across America. Cathedrals dot capitals, statues of religious figures can easily be found in any public place, at jobs and schools the day is begun by affirming our allegiance to One Nation, Under God, and God even has a presence on our currency. All of this can be traced back to a single man, a peasant in ancient Palestine, who brought about a cultural revolution, and paid the price of martyrdom for doing so. In the short 33 years of his life, Jesus of Nazareth started a religious movement which has changed all of history since.
