Cyprus Institute recreates site of the Last Supper in 3-D imagery

The Institute of Cyprus and the antiquities department of Israel have created a 3D representation of the Cenacle in Jerusalem, the site of the Last Supper between Jesus Christ and his disciples. Christians believe the Last Supper took place on the Thursday before Good Friday.

The Cypriot and Israeli scientists digitally reconstructed a three-dimensional model using 3D scanners and advanced photographic methods.  A press release yesterday said that the site has ancient, worn surfaces and poor lighting which have until now hindered a study of its history.

The team of the Institute of Cyprus explained that the building has three parts; the ground floor with the Tomb of King David, the upper Cenacle and a third room, the Room of the Holy Ghost.
