Chapter Summary

The Temple of Jerusalem, one of the most important building sites for Jews, Christians, and Muslims, has been a permanent topic of theological, historical, and political discourse. This chapter concentrates on the situation in Leiden in the second half of the seventeenth century, from an architectural historical point of view. It describes a special focus on Johannes Cocceius and his interpretation of the Temple as in Ezekiel's prophecy. Along with his philological, emblematic study of the Temple, Cocceius presented an actual reconstruction of the Temple as contemporary architecture. His attempt can be understood as biblical criticism by visual means, in which text and image are closely intertwined. The engravings of the Temple that accompanied his text can be understood as part of an architectural debate, parallel to theology and biblical chronology, conducted on another level and with other means, but within the same context of criticism.

Keywords: biblical criticism; Ezekiel's prophecy; Johannes Cocceius; Temple of Jerusalem
