Pinsteps. The chapel of st. Longinus in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher

Guy Cassius Longin was a Roman soldier who took part in the crucifixion of Christ. Longin pierced the body of Jesus with a spear between his ribs. This act was an integral part of the crucifixion. The clinical course of death on the cross is associated with pulmonary edema. Perforation of the lungs releases the air, and the agony continues. Tradition has it that after Jesus died, Longin, like other soldiers, was convinced that the Son of God was before him. He refused to testify that the disciples stole the body of Jesus from the burial cave. Longin went out to Cappadocia to preach the Christian religion. According to tradition, Pontius Pilate sent men to capture Longin and other preachers and demanded their heads cut off. When Longin was executed, Pilate received his head and threw it not far from Calvary. A blind woman found her, and the sight miraculously returned to her. Tradition says that these events took place in this place. Therefore, there is a chapel of St. Longin here.
