Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Imagined and Real Jerusalem in Art and Architecture presents the table of contents, acknowledgements, and a list of Illustrations and contributors. The book proves that Jerusalem is an object of perennial interest. As a source of religious, political, cultural and consequently artistic focal points, the theme shows no signs of running dry. On the contrary, because of the ongoing turmoil, the city as a point of reference seems to gain new importance all the time. The goal was to discuss in depth a series of artworks and artefacts which question the representation of Jerusalem and complement each other or put other cases in perspective. Inevitably all cases deal to a certain extent with religious or political notions and the effects they produce on the representation of Jerusalem and on cultural debate in general.

Keywords: architecture; art; Jerusalem; political notions; religious notions
