Abstract: The rehabilitation of the Holy Aedicule of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, completed in March 2017, aimed to address the deformation problems encountered after its most recent reconstruction in 1810. A diagnostic study performed by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), indicated the cause of the deformations and revealed the Aedicule’s structural layers. The results permitted the application of compatible and performing restoration mortars through reverse engineering. Non destructive techniques (NDTs) were used throughout the rehabilitation process to monitor and assess the effectiveness of the restoration mortars’ application and the results show that compatibility was ensured and the masonry structure was adequately strengthened.
