The centrality of Jerusalem to the modern, western world requires no elaboration. But, the roots of its elevated status go back to the ancient world, to the Iron Age dynasties and the various mutations and developments in the city that occurred in the thousand years thereafter during the Graeco-Roman, Byzantine, and early Islamic periods. This course will study the city of Jerusalem in its ancient contexts. We will delve into archaeological remains, examine inscriptions, coins, and artistic depictions, as well as study the multi-faceted literary tradition both Jewish and non that preserved the story of this ancient place. All material will be presented in English.
