Summary The greatest story ever told Acclaimed historian Simon Sebag Montefiore explores the rise and fall and rise again of Jerusalem, one of the world's oldest cities, in a compelling series that illuminates the history of this sacred, and peerlessly beautiful place. He documents how this unique city came into being, explaining how and why it became of such major importance to the Jewish, Christian and Islamic religions and how these Abrahamic faiths emerged from the Biblical tradition of the Israelites. Montefiore explains: 'This is not just a biography of this extraordinary city, not just a history. It is also an anatomy of holiness, a study of how sanctity develops and mutates and adapts throughout history.'
