This guide traces the history of this site and the church, whose clergy have been provided by different communities. Today, Greeks celebrate in the upper church, and Armenians in the north transpet. In the grottoes below, Armenians and Greeks celebrate at the Altar of the Nativity, and Latins at the Altar of the Manger. An up-to-date list of the time of services is included in the lists. The book is well illustrated with colour photographs, charts and diagrams.
