Edited by Dieter Vieweger, Shimon Gibson

Description

The Muristan is situated in the heart of the Old City of Jerusalem and was a prime property in medieval times with numerous churches, a hospice, and a large hospital complex.

This monograph contains fifteen chapters written by leading scholars from around the world dealing with the archaeological and historical aspects of the Muristan from the Iron Age through to Ottoman times.

A number of chapters also address its immediate urban surroundings, notably the complex of structures associated with the Church of the Holy Sepulchre on the north and the Church of St John the Baptist to the south-west.

Key chapters in this monograph are dedicated to the history of the Church of the Redeemer and on its underlying archaeological remains.

Many of the chapters are based on research that was originally presented at an international workshop held in Jerusalem in 2014.
