About this product
- DescriptionThis is an intriguing and concise history of the city of Jerusalem, whose story is one of the richest and longest in the world. Lavishly illustrated, this beautiful book contains a combination of historically chrological and themed chapters that recall the origins of Jerusalem and show how it has been at the centre of disputes between the three major world religions - Judaism, Islam and Christianity - for nearly two millennia. With special chapters on some of the most important features of the city, such as the Western Wall, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and the Al-Aqsa Mosque, as well as others on key moments in its story, such as the declaration of Israel's independence and the Six-Day War, Jerusalem: The Illustrated History of the Holy City offers a fascinating insight into how the city has continued as a focus t just for the people of the Middle East but also for the world.
