Jerusalem after Rome


In this discussion seminar, we trace the history of how a city became sacred to three religions, the impact of the Crusades on the demography and built environment of Jerusalem and the memory of medieval Jerusalem today. For students interested in history, literature, religious and social conflict, architecture and archaeology. One research paper, one literature review, and regular reading responses. Reading load is moderate to heavy.
