The director of the Jerusalem Institute of the Görres Society, Gustav Kühnel, who sadly passed away far too early, is the author, together with his wife Bianca, of a beautiful volume on the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, which was built by Emperor Constantine. In the preface, Gustav's efforts to restore the Crusader-period mosaics are acknowledged - not his only contribution to the Holy Land. Gustav Kühnel died in 2009, in the 100th year of the existence of the Jerusalem Institute, which had been founded in 1909 on the initiative of Johann Peter Kirsch and whose anniversary unfortunately passed uncelebrated.
