KIRKUS REVIEW

With a brief text by a professor of archaeology and history of art at Hebrew University, this is primarily a visual guide to Jerusalem and ""the contrast between its metaphysical sanctity and mundane day to day life which sometimes degenerates to outright squalor."" It features 130 photographs, some in color (chiefly by Werner Braun) of shrines, religious processions, temples, et al., sacred to Moslem, Christian, or Jew.
