Calvary, anglicised from Calvaria, the term used in the Vulgate to translate the Hebrew Golgotha, a skull, is the name applied to the scene of the Crucifixion, usually identified with a small hill on the N. side of Jerusalem. It is also used in Roman Catholic countries to denote an eminence on which three crosses - the Saviour's and the thieves' - are erected in memory of the Crucifixion.
