Jerusalem is one of the oldest cities of the world. Beginning as an impoverished provincial town amid the Judaean Hills, it soon came to dominate the history of the world, becoming the focus of the Abrahamic religions. Jerusalem is also the house of the one God, the capital of two peoples, the temple of three religions and the only city to exist twice – in heaven and one earth.

This course will examine Jerusalem through the eyes of its historians, writers and artists. Beginning with the establishment of the city by King David and utilizing primary sources, we will study Jerusalem’s history, literature and art during the Temples’ destructions, the formation of the Crusader Kingdom, the coming of the Ottomans, and during the upheavals of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
