Church of the Nativity to get repairs
« on: November 27, 2011, 09:33:09 AM »
The Church of the Nativity is one of the holiest sites in Christendom. After much debate, it is now due to get needed structural repairs.

The first and most urgent part of the renovation, initiated by the Palestinian government in the West Bank, is meant to replace the building's roof. Ancient wooden beams pose a danger to visitors, officials say, and leaks have already ruined many of the church's priceless mosaics and paintings.
