After centuries of turf wars and even brawls, the dueling denominations overseeing Jerusalem's Church of the Holy Sepulchre have collectively approved much-needed repairs for one of Christianity's holiest sites.
Infighting between clerics had long blocked renovations to the church, where Jesus is believed to have been crucified, buried and resurrected.
The Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox and Armenian churches that are responsible for maintaining separate sections have disagreed and even clashed over the centuries. In 2008, an argument between Greek Orthodox and Armenian monks broke out into an all out fight.
"We equally decided the required renovation was necessary to be done, so we agreed upon it," Rev. Samuel Aghoyan, the top Armenian official at the church, told the AP.
Now the chamber housing Jesus' tomb, known as the Holy Edicule, is getting a face-lift.
