The strange logic that “moves” the stairs of the Holy Sepulchre

Entering the world of Status Quo, the rigid system of unwritten rules that since 1852 regulates property, space and time for the Christian communities in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, also means coming across the many objects that are part of the church. Some cannot be moved an inch, others … move. This is the case with this particular aluminium staircase, which is placed behind the anointing stone the day after Ash Wednesday and it is taken away only after weeks, on the Thursday of Corpus Christi. So much so that some people are.. even a little bit annoyed.
