Jerusalem, City of Longing
Simon Goldhill's book, Jerusalem, City of Longing, has been published to great reviews: it takes the reader on a vivid, iconoclastic, and surprising tour of Jerusalem -- its history, archaeology and myths. It will change the way you look at the city that means so much to so many people.
In this talk, Simon Goldhill, took some of the myths, tales and truths about the walls of the city, one of the most familiar yet insufficiently understood sites of Jerusalem.
Professor Simon Goldhill is Professor in Greek Literature and Culture and Fellow and Director of Studies in Classics at King's College. Among many other books, he is the author of The Temple of Jerusalem and Love, Sex and Tragedy.
