Jerusalem is a symbol and a dream—the eternal capital of Israel. But besides the heavenly Jerusalem, there many more Jerusalems. There is Jerusalem as the historic city of conquerors and kings, prophets, wise men, and story-tellers. There is Jerusalem as a landmark of faith for Israel, Christianity, and Islam. And there is modern Jerusalem, in which there has been great effort to build a city of the future while guarding the city’s unique character and beauty, her message of tranquility and peaceful coexistence. Carta’s Historical Atlas of Jerusalem covers the city of Jerusalem in various different points throughout history. Starting in Ancient Jerusalem with the First Temple, it goes on to the Second Temple Period, Jerusalem at the Time of Jesus, Roman Jerusalem, Byzantine Jerusalem, the Muslim Period and the Crusades, the Ayyubid and Mameluke Period, the Turkish Rule, the British Mandate, and Jerusalem United. Presented in a highly visual manner, by means of maps and diagrams, floor plans and photographs, the historical and architectural development of the Holy City unfolds before the reader. The book includes 12 full-page maps of Jerusalem, one for each chapter, showing the growth of the city throughout the ages. With Carta’s Historical Atlas of Jerusalem, any reader can learn about Jerusalem’s 4,000 year history.
