Description

This course surveys the religious, political, and cultural history of Jerusalem over three millennia as a symbolic focus of three faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The course content will focus on the transformation of sacred space as reflected by literary and archaeological evidence by examining the testimony of artifacts, architecture, and iconography in relation to the written word. We will study the creation of mythic Jerusalem through event and experience. Course requirements will focus on developing advanced writing skills. Instructor: Robert R. Cargill, Ph.D.

Customer Reviews

Very frustrating...

This class could have been wonderful. The professor is knowledgeable and personable, the subject fascinating. However, the quality of the course is undermined by the complete disregard for the online student. In the American media capital, UCLA presents a course with deplorable production values. The microphones are placed so that the sounds of students coughing or trucks passing drown out the lecturer’s voice. Although slides are integral to the presentation, they are shown only in the background. It is impossible to see them online. It’s maddeningly disrespectful of the online viewer.

A 5000 year overview of the History of Jerusalem...

Dr. Cargill analyzes the history of Jerusalem from the perspective of a scholar and an archaeologist, rather than that of a theologian. He gives perspective that both the scholar and the theologian can benefit and learn from. I have recommended this to friends at church who are not afraid to address the subject without theological bias. The history of Jerusalem gives one a clearer view of Middle East issues.

Excellent scholar and topic

This is great for any college course. Information is solid and Dr. Cargill is a top notch scholar!
