Revealing The Temple Mount In Jerusalem
By: Leen Ritmeyer
This serious book presents a vivid view of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem through the ages, and it also serves as a textbook. Comprehensive in scope, the book begins with the Temple Mount at its zenith under King Herod the Great. Weaving together archaeological data with historical sources, Ritmeyer produces an authoritative and exhaustive reconstruction in word and in picture.
With the features of the Herodian Temple Mount clearly understood, the reader is led to the quest for the earlier, square Temple Mount, described by Josephus and the Mishnah. Theories are fairly examined and evaluated as the search progresses.
This rich accumulation of archaeological and literary evidence suggests a solution for Jerusalem’s enduring enigmas.
This work distills three millennia of history and 30 years of intensive research into the definitive book on the Temple Mount.
