Via Dolorosa

Via Dolorosa
The route followed by Christian pilgrims in Jerusalem commemorating the journey taken by Jesus carrying his cross (Mark 15:20–2), and punctuated with nine stations for prayer. The present route was fixed in the 18th cent. and does not correspond with historical probability, but is convenient for the fourteen ‘stops’ as finally settled for Roman Catholics in the 19th cent.
