    “The Via Dolorosa is defined by faith not by history.” After the Last Supper Jesus retired to the Garden of Gethsemane. Here he was arrested and taken to the house of Caiphas and then to the Praetorium of Pilate. It is probable that Pilate condemned Jesus to death at the Citadel. This was the palace of Herod where Pilate normally lived when he came to Jerusalem. Jesus was brought through the city to the place of execution.
