 The Civitas Dei throughout the ages has been a radiant and inexhaustible inspiration to poets, mystics and artists.

With all its limitations and omissions, it may be claimed that this is the first Jerusalem anthology drawn from world literature. It brings into brighter focus than hitherto how travellers, poets and visionaries have reacted to the image of the heavenly and earthly capital of the spirit - the 'rock of ages'.

Steering a non-partisan course, the editor, drawing from a wide range of sources, many of which have seldom been explored, presents a literary portrait of the holiest city on earth.
