The unveiling of the decoration of the dome of the Rotunda of the Holy Sepulchre on 2 January 1997 brought to a triumphant end a programme of restoration that had begun in 1955. The presence at the ceremony of all three patriarchs and the Custos of the Holy Land revealed that a growing sense of unity between the different churches had gone hand in hand with the consolidation of the historical monument they share. The mood of serene cooperation contrasted vividly with the inception of the project which was marked by grudging acceptance of reality.
