The Archaeology of Jerusalem: From the Origins to the Ottomans
Galor, Katharina and Hanswulf Bloedhorn

New Haven: Yale University Press, 2013 pp. xiv + 332. $39.90


Description: In this sweeping and lavishly illustrated history, Katharina Galor and Hanswulf Bloedhorn survey nearly four thousand years of human settlement and building activity in Jerusalem, from prehistoric times through the Ottoman period. The study is structured chronologically, exploring the cityís material culture, including fortifications and water systems as well as key sacred, civic, and domestic architecture. Distinctive finds such as paintings, mosaics, pottery, and coins highlight each period. Their book provides a unique perspective on the emergence and development of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, and the relationship among the three religions and their cultures into the modern period.

Subjects: Methods, Historical Approaches, History, Ancient Near Eastern History
