about this item

This volume, the second of four in The Carta New Testament Atlas series, presents the latest advances in the history and archaeology of Jerusalem. The last fifty years in particular have seen significantly increased efforts to discover the city’s past. New finds every year render what is previously written almost out of date before the ink is dry. With an acknowledgement of this reality, together with a recognition that much of the Old City of Jerusalem remains inaccessible to archaeological investigation, the present work lays its shoulder to the challenge.

The author, in bringing together this mosaic of evidence, examines the results of recent archaeological investigations and understands them in light of a careful reading of the ancient literary witnesses (biblical and extra-biblical). Notley pays attention to the nuances of language that inform us in the Greek and Hebrew accounts. This is no simple task, and it falls precisely at the juncture of history, philology, and archaeology. To deny the voice of one discipline over the others can leave us short of a clear understanding of history and its topographical details.

Profusely illustrated, this is one more tour de force by renowned author R. Steven Notley, a scholar at the cutting edge of New Testament research.
