A-Z: General definitions: Holy of Holies


In the Old Testament this was the most holy place in the tabernacle or temple. Before the destruction of the temple on Jerusalem it held the Ark of the Covenant which held the two tablets of stone on which were written the ten commandments given to Moses (Exodus 26:31-35). Only the High Priest was allowed to go into this holy place.
