Antique Lithography with Saint Helen

Saint Helen and her son Constantine are also known as Equal to the Apostles. Saint Helen traveled to the Holy Lands in Jerusalem where she found the Tomb of Jesus and three crosses. Of these, it was believed that one must be that of our Lord, the other two of the thieves crucified with Him. At the inspiration of Saint Macarius, Archbishop of Jerusalem, a lady of Jerusalem, who was already at the point of death was brought to touch the crosses. As soon as she came near to the Cross of the Lord, she suddenly recovered and Helen declared the cross with which the woman had been touched to be the True Cross. On the site of discovery, Constantine ordered the building of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Churches were also built on other sites detected by Helen.
