Through the Eyes of the Beholder PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Through the Eyes of the Beholder free pdf The collection examines the view of holiness in the "Holy Land" through the writings of pilgrims, travelers, and missionaries. The period extends from 1517, the Ottoman conquest of Syria and Palestine, to the Franco-British treaty of Utrecht in 1713 and the consolidation of European hegemony over the Mediterranean. The writers in the collection include Christians (Orthodox, Protestant, and Catholic), Muslims, and Jews, who originate from countries such as Sweden, England, France, Holland, Russia, the Ottoman Empire, and Syria. This book is the first to juxtapose writers of different backgrounds and languages, to emphasize the holiness of the land in a number of traditions, and to ask whether holiness was inherent in geography or a product of the piety of the writers.Contributors are: Mohammad Asfour, Hasan Baktir, A.A. Baramki, Richard Coyle, Judy A. Hayden, Nabil I. Matar, Joachim Ostlund, Jonathan Rotenberg-Schwartz, Julia Schleck, Mazin Tadros and Galina Yermolenko.
