The historian Eusebius writes in his Vita Constantini, which dates from around
328, about an interesting occurrence in Jerusalem of Easter in the year 162.
When the church wardens were about to fill the lamps to make them ready to
celebrate the resurrection of Christ, they suddenly noticed that there was no
more oil left to pour in the lamps. Upon this, Bishop Narcissus of Jerusalem
ordered the candles to be filled with water. He then told the wardens to
ignite them. In front of the eyes of all present every single lamp burned as
if filled with pure oil. Christian Orthodox tradition holds that this miracle,
which predates the construction of the Holy Sepulchre in the fourth Century,
is related to the Miracle of the Holy Fire. They admit that the two differ, as
the former was a one-time occurrence while the Miracle of the Holy Fire occurs
every year. However, they have in common premise that God has produced fire
where there logically speaking should have been none. Around 385 Egeria, a
noble woman from Spain, traveled to Palestine. In the account of her journey,
she speaks of a ceremony by the Holy Sepulchre of Christ, where a light comes
forth (ejicitur) from the small chapel enclosing the tomb, by which the entire
church is filled with an infinite light (lumen infinitum). Despite these
previous instances, the Holy Fire is believed to have been first recorded by
the Christian pilgrim Bernard the Wise (Bernardus Monachus) in 876. Bundle of
