Jerusalem, the holy city of the three major monotheistic religions today, acquired that designation over millenia. This graduate seminar will explore the evolution of Jerusalem into the “Holy City” of the “Holy Land,” from the perspective of each of the three religions. Primary sources from events in the history of ancient and medieval Jerusalem will be read and discussed. Historical evidence for co-existence of the three major religious groups in the microcosm of Jerusalem, their shared religious experiences, and violent conflicts will be investigated, as the land itself became terra sancta.
This research guide will help you identify and locate resources on Jerusalem and offer tips on research and citing sources.
