Holy Monastery of Saint Nicodemus or Saint Peters Prison

Jerusalem : Holy Monastery of Saint Nicodemus or Saint Peters Prison

Near the Holy Monastery of the Praetorion and after the stone-paved path towards the north-east side there is a Holy Monastery in honour of Saint Nicodemus. The monastery is built over the ruins of Simon the Pharisee’s house. Christ was hosted in that house and spoke with Nicodemus who was a secret disciple of His. Nicodemus together with Joseph of Arimathea asked Pilatus to give them the body of Christ for burial after the Sacrifice on the Cross. In a basement under the Holy Church there is Saint Peter’s prison from which he was miraculously freed by an angel. The Holy Monastery is more known as the Monastery of the lentils, because it was used as a place to cook lentils for the workers who were building the Church of the Resurrection. In fact, the big cauldron, the cauldron of Saint Helen, is still kept there.
