This course surveys the religious, political, and cultural history of Jerusalem over three millennia as a symbolic focus of three faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The course content will focus on the transformation of sacred space as reflected by literary and archaeological evidence by examining the testimony of artifacts, architecture, and iconography in relation to the written word. We will study the creation of mythic Jerusalem through event and experience. Course requirements will focus on developing advanced writing skills.

Great

Wow. What a privilege to be able to listen to this. Great presentation style. Sure… The production values are not amazing, but the podcast is secondary to the purpose of these lectures. He’s better than most of the professors I had in college. I wish I had access to the graphics.
Thanks for putting this out there.
