Edited by H. G. M. Williamson and Robert G. Hoyland

Oxford Illustrated History

  • The history of the Holy Land, from the origins of Israel through to fall of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I
  • Traces the 3,000 years which saw the rise of three of the world's major religions -- Judaism, Christianity, and Islam
  • A stimulating, thematic approach to topics usually overlooked in historical surveys -- pilgrimage, the concept of holy space, and the nature of scripture.
  • Highly illustrated with paintings, photographs, and ancient texts, this is a fascinating documentation of a region central to the cultural and intellectual history of the world
