Abstract
This
study
concerns
the
concept
of
sacred
architectural
imitation,
using the
Platonicnotion
of
mimesis
which
then
later
finds
expression
in
the
medieval
idea
of
imitatio.
In Religiousas
weIl
as
in
artistic
and
architectural
forms
of
expression,
the
notion
of
imitation
is
indeed
a
very
central
and
complex
issue.
At
the
heart
of
this
concept
is
the
question
of
meaning,
or,
more
precisely,
the
transference
or
translation
of
meaning;
from
original
to
copy,
from
prototype
to
reproduction.
In orderto
better
illustrate
and
understand the
principles
guiding the
notion
of
medieval
sacred
architectural
imitation
l
have
chosen
to
focus
on
five
specific
instances
surroundingthe
replication
of the
Holy
Sepulcher
in
Jerusalem,
arguably
the
most
revered
landmark
in
Christendom.
A
close
examination
ofthe
relationships
which
exist
between
model
andcopy
will
bring to
thefore the
dynamics which
govern
the process
of
mimesis
by which meaning
is
reproduced
in
the
architectural
replicas.
From
this
comparative
analysis
will
emerge
a
more
universal
picture
of the
medieval
concept
of
religious
imitation.
Indeed,
if
anything,

namely
