Jerusalem is a holy city for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. It is a city of strange contradictions and astonishing curiosities. This book seeks to help readers grasp Jerusalem's unique role in the history of mankind, as it charts the "curiosities" of the city -- not to be confused with "trivia" about the city -- through the centuries, and right up to the late 20th century.
