Worshippers kneel at the Stone of Anointing, a slab of reddish stone flanked by candlesticks and overhung by a row of eight lamps at the entrance of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the Old City of Jerusalem .
Although this is not the stone on which Christ’s body was anointed, this devotion is recorded only since the 12th century. The present stone dates from 1810.
