Greenberg Scholar-in-Residence Lecture
Location: Palamountain Hall: Davis Auditorium
Time: 8:00 PM
Speaker: Daniella Talmon-Heller
"The first of the two directions of prayer, the second of mosques, the third of sanctuaries: Jerusalem in Islamic thought and history"
According to Islamic lore, Jerusalem preceded Mecca as the first direction of prayer for Muslims. The Prophet Muhammad paid it a visit on his miraculous night journey; 'Umar, the second caliph, accepted the surrender of its Bishop in 636, the Umayyad caliphs adorned its Temple Mt. with the magnificent edifices of the Dome of the Rock and the Mosque of al-Aqsa; Crusaders and warriors of Jihad competed for it in the Middle Ages; Jews and Muslims swear never to give it up today.
Daniella Talmon-Heller (Ben-Gurion University of the Negev) will explain the special place of Jerusalem in Islamic thought and history from the 7th until the 21st century, and the role it is expected to play at the end of times.
