Calvary (Golgotha) is the English-language name given to the site, outside of Ancient Jerusalemâ€™s early 1st century walls, ascribed to Jesusâ€™ crucifixion. The exact location is handed down from antiquity. Although the significance of the name is lost to modernity, Calvariae Locus in Latin, ÎšÏ�Î±Î½Î¹Î¿Ï… Î¤Î¿Ï€Î¿Ï‚ (Kraniou Topos) in Greek, and GÃ»lgaltÃ¢ in Aramaic all denote 'place of [the] skull.' In some Christian and Jewish traditions, the name refers to the location of the skull of Adam. The word "Calvary" comes from "Calvariae" in the Latin Vulgate.
