Item description for The Holy Land (White Star Guides) by Fabio Bourbon & Enrico Lavagno...
With a history as ancient as that of humankind, the Holy Land contains an unparalleled wealth of archaeological ruins and monuments. Divided into chapters focusing on Jerusalem, North Israel, South Israel, Mount Sinai, and Jordan, this meticulously researched handbook explores vivid symbols of Jewish heritage like Masada and Tiberias and guides readers through such varied sites as the rock-cut city of Petra in Jordan, Megiddo-the supposed site of Armageddon, and St. Catherine's Monastery, the smallest Greek orthodox diocese in the world, delving into the highlights of each site's history and architecture. With a historic survey at the beginning of the book outlining the significant epochs and detailed photographs and plans throughout, this is an indispensable reference for the archaeologically minded traveler.
Journalist Fabio Bourbon has written numerous books for White Star, including Holy Land-Yesterday and Today, and Petra-Archeaological Guide. Enrico Lavagno has published with White Star for many years, particularly in the fields of archaeology, history, and art.
