TLRH | Jerusalem’s Holy Places: sustaining, safeguarding, and respecting
A talk by our Founder President, Dr Ed Kessler organised by the School of Religion, Theology, and Peace Studies, and supported by the Trinity Long Room Hub.
The centrality of Jerusalem makes its holy places sites of contention for Jews, Christians and Muslims. Jerusalem represents the divine–human encounter, linking heaven and earth. Here for Jews, the Temple stood and the Presence of God dwelt; for Christians, the Word of God became flesh in Jesus and the crucifixion and resurrection took place; and from here, the Prophet Muhammed journeyed to paradise and met Moses and other prophets. Ed Kessler has spent many years visiting the region and engaging with local actors. His talk will explore the significance of Jerusalem's Holy Places and the role they play today.
