A linear narrative, enhanced by maps and diagrams, makes this instantly engaging history of Jerusalem suitable for general readers. The attention to detail and sustained analysis drawn from a vast array of primary sources establishes a comprehensive resource for scholars and students. Be amazed by the strength of character that enabled the ancient jews to return from exile in Babylon to rebuild the Great Temple of Jerusalem and centuries later that same resilience to fight two major wars against the might of Rome. Experience the development of Christianity in the city as magnificent churches are erected and Jerusalem becomes the focal point for thousands of pilgrims. Discover fascinating revelations of the parts played in the story of Jerusalem by so many of the most important characters from ancient history, including David, Solomon, Nebuchadnezzar, Judas Maccabee, Pompey, Herod the great, Mark Antony, Cleopatra, Hadrian, and Justinian.
