A brilliant little book which explores our continuing fascination with this eternal monument to the human imagination. (Tristam Hunt)
Few buildings in the world have had such a power over the imagination as the Temple in Jerusalem. Yet it has not existed for nearly 2000 years. This magnificent book tells the history of that monument of the imagination and its significance for Jews and Christians and Muslims. The Temple was the central religious site of the ancient Jews, a wonder of the ancient world. It was destroyed in the 1st Century AD by the Roman Emperor Titus as part of the crushing of revolt in Judaea. Since then the Temple and its site have had a unique hold on our imagination - a longing for the Jews; a central metaphor of Christian thought (the Holy Sepulchre); an icon for Muslims (the Dome of the Rock). Simon Goldhill explores its history and its changing use in a religious, political and cultural context: a story that from the Crusades onwards has helped form the modern political world. This is the next title in the Wonders of the World series.
