9780198147855: Christians and the Holy Places: The Myth of Jewish-Christian Origins

This book is a detailed examination of the literature and archaeology pertaining to specific sites (in Palestine, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Memre, Nazareth, Capernaum, and elsewhere) and the region in general. Taylor contends that the origins of these holy places and the phenomenon of Christian pilgrimage can be traced to the emperor Constantine, who ruled over the eastern Empire from 324. He contends that few places were actually genuine; the most important authentic site being the cave (not Garden) of Gethsemane, where Christ was probably arrested. Extensively illustrated, this lively new look at a topic previously shrouded in obscurity should interest students in scholars in a range of disciplines.

Review:


"Must reading for all who study and teach early church history or the archaeology of the New Testament."--American Historical Review


"[Taylor's] unflinching commitment to hard-headed analysis of concrete evidence...presents a needed challenge to the unexamined sentimentality with which Christians have traditionally approached pilgrimage and the holy land."--The Living Church


"[This book] belongs in any academic library."--Religious Studies Review


"[Taylor's] clear and well-organized study is a real contribution to scholarship...the book will be a valuable companion to the wider-ranging works of Walker and Wilken."--The Heythrop Journal
