Description
 
Dan Bahat, Shalom Sabar

Publisher: Rizzoli International Publications

As the spiritual center of the world's three monotheistic religions, Jerusalem is a crossroads of art, architecture, and history. The sanctified sites of the city, its fascinating personages, and its breathtaking landscapes have captivated the imagination of artists over the centuries-but, as in every culture, the images that resulted speak more of the values and beliefs of their creators that of the actual course of events. Jerusalem: Stone and Spirit offers a truly unique view of the Holy City in a blend of compelling history and sumptuous visuals. Images collected from all over the world-many previously unpublished-show maps based on the bible and historical events; lithographs, including a romanticized view of the Dome of the Rock; the earliest Biblical quotation found, inscribed on a silver plaque; illuminated manuscripts sowing Mohammad's ascension into heaven and the cursaders' siege of Jerusalem; coins stamped with an early image of the menorah or a portrait of the Emperor Hadrian; and mosaics, reliefs, letters and paintings. These fascinating artifacts-the soul of Jerusalem past and present-narrate the religious, social, political, and artistic history of the city.
