The course focuses on the history of Jerusalem between 70-640 CE, with emphasis placed upon the archaeological evidence. Literary sources, such as Josephus Flavious, the early Church fathers and Christian pilgrims will be discussed, as well as the history of modern research of the city. The transformation of the ancient city's urban design, including major construction works such as fortifications, street layout, public buildings, temples and churches will be addressed together with the changes in the religious character of the city, as Jerusalem was transformed from a Jewish administrative and spiritual center to a Roman pagan city and finally to a central site of early Christianity.
