Full text not available from this repository.
From the Muslims’ to the Crusaders’ conquest Jerusalem is among the world’s best known cities. Its most outstanding and constant feature is its shared holiness by three major confessions (Muslim, Jewish and Christian).
Covering the Marwanid, the Abbasid, and the Faimid phase, this study describes not only the emergence of conceptions with which the three major confessions share this city, but also their interactions as well as the political circumstances and religious axioms which give each conception its specific shape.
Looking for these conceptions of the holy area of the city the Haram has been chosen. This area of the former temple was highly significant to all three confessions. The analysis is based on a careful description of the Haram (focusing on topics like names and traditions, architecture, rituals and customs, visions and dreams), and on the establishment of as many parallels as possible.
