From the Publisher. A highly original architectural history of Jerusalem's Temple Mount that doubles as a social and cultural history of the region. It is the most extensive study of the interrelated history of two monuments, Solomon’s Temple and The Dome of the Rock, drawing on an exhaustive review of all the visual and textual evidence.

Relayed as a gripping narrative, Solomon’s Temple allows readers to re-enter and experience the emotions and the visceral reality of the major events in its history. It integrates illustration with the text to offer a highly detailed and accurate portrait of the major structures and figures involved in the history of the temple. The book opens up a fascinating line of questioning into the conventional interpretation of events, particularly Christ’s actions in the Temple. Reproduced are rarely seen detailed drawings of the subterranean passages beneath Temple Mount as part of the British survey in the 19th century.
