Cathedrals of the Cosmic Christ


Cathedral of Jesus the Christ

Calvary Slope, outside of old Jerusalem

The Knights Templar built their churches in Europe in a very unique form, which was derived from the shape and sacred proportions of certain parts of the:

Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, in Jerusalem

Church of the Anastasis ('Resurrection')

A sepulchre is a small room or monument, cut in rock or built of stone, in which a dead person is laid or buried:


Oculus (Ø 3.9m) in Rotunda dome (Ø 19m)

Jesus Christ Pantocrator (Almigthy)
in Catholicon dome (Ø 9m)

The catholicon is built over a large crypt, shaped as a cross-in-square church, with groin vaults forming the roof. The roof and much of the walls are covered with wall paintings, dated to the first half of the 11th century. The church was built of large, ancient stone blocks.

The Rotunda dome was built in 1149 by the Crusaders, and rebuilt in 1810 in Ottoman Baroque style.

A double square is touching one circle in Golden Mean proportion,
whereby all 4 purple circles are related in Golden Mean as well:

In the Templar church complex in Tomar, Portugal,
the double square, built 300 years after the Rotunda,
does not touch the middle circle.
Its width is the width of the church rectangle,
not the width of the Chapter House.

The Holy Fire

The French monk Bernard the Wise saw this Easter fire in 876 AD, and was the first to report this in W-Europe. It is caused by electrically igniting plasma in a miraculous way.
