Title: Jerusalem : the city of Herod and Saladin
Authors: Besant, Walter, 1836-1901
Keywords: Jerusalem - History
Jerusalem - Description and travel
Issue Date: 1908
Abstract: A history of the city of Jerusalem from about the year 30 to the present time. This period includes the siege and capture by Titus, the last revolts of the Jews, the Christian occupation of three hundred years, the Islamic conquest, the building by the Muslims of the Dome of the Rock, the Crusades, the Christian kingdom, and a long period of Islamic rule, during which no event has happened except the yearly flocking of pilgrims to the Church of the Sepulcher, and an occasional quarrel among the monks. There are here, surely, sufficient materials for the historian if only he knows how to use them. For the modern period, that of the Christian kingdom, two sources of information exist, one, the contemporary and later chronicles of the Crusaders, written either in Latin or Langue d'Oil, and the other, the Arabic historians themselves.
