Read on for article

Author and historian Simon Sebag Montefiore presents a fascinating series on the city of Jerusalem.

In the final episode, Simon explores how this unique city rose from a crumbling ruin after the Crusades to be rebuilt as a world centre of Islamic pilgrimage. He also explains how Jerusalem became the object of rivalry between the Christian nations of Europe, the focus of the longing of Jews from all over the world and, ultimately, the site of one of the world’s most intractable conflicts.
