Christianity and Jerusalem

Anthony O’Mahony (Editor)

Christianity in the Holy Land has found its presence significantly challenged from a number of directions—war, interreligious and ethnic conflict, emigration, and a fragmented ecclesiology—for almost all of the twentieth century and into the first decade of the present century. As a sacred city Jerusalem has a global significance: for Muslims, for Jews and for Christians. Theology and politics have interacted in this sacred story. The contributors to this volume have undertaken a wide-ranging historical, political and theological enquiry into the Christian presence in modern Jerusalem and the Holy Land.
