Overview

Just uttering the word Jerusalem results in an automatic change in the state of mind for Jews, Christians and Muslims. Their individual and collective history in this city—a holy place for all three of the great monotheistic faiths—has covered over three thousand years but Jerusalem's history extends two millennia farther in the sands of time.

The Old City of Jerusalem surveys the City of Peace and her inhabitants from the Canaanite Period through the Ottoman Empire in 1917. You will travel from the Pre-Davidic period with stops during the establishment of the Jewish nation, the conquest of Hellenism, the Hasmoneans, Jerusalem as a Roman outpost, the extravagance of the Byzantine period, the capture of the City during the First Muslim period, the Crusader period and once again to Muslim rule. The monograph includes beautiful color plates picturing objects from the various periods.
