Jerusalem: The Making of a Holy City

Herhaling. Author and historian Simon Sebag Montefiore presents a three-part series illuminating the history of Jerusalem.

One of the oldest cities in the world, for the Jewish faith it is the site of the Western Wall, the last remnant of the second Jewish temple. For Christians, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the site of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

For Muslims, the Al-Aqsa mosque is the third holiest sanctuary of Islam. In episode one, Simon explores how it came into being and how it became so important to the three Abrahamic faiths.

Starting with the Canaanites, Simon goes on a chronological journey to trace the rise of the city as a holy place and discusses the evidence for it becoming a Jewish city under King David. He moves from the construction of the first temple by Solomon through to the life and death of Jesus and the expulsion of the Jews by the Romans, concluding in the 7th century on the eve of the capture of Jerusalem by the Muslim caliph, Umar ibn al-Khattab.(2011)
