The Golden Gate, the oldest existing gate in Jerusalem's Old City Walls, which Jesus passed through on Palm Sunday, fulfilling a prophecy that the Messiah would enter the city through this gate. As this tradition continued among the city's Jews, the Ottoman Sultan Suleiman I had the Golden Gate bricked up in 1541 to prevent it ever happening. Carl Friedrich Heinrich Werner (1808-94) was a German watercolourist who visited Egypt and the Holy Land in 1862-4, where he was one of the few non-Muslims able to gain access to paint the interior of the Dome of the Rock. He published his book 'Jerusalem, Bethlehem and the Holy Places' in 1865.

Plan of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem, named after the king who had it built. The print claims to derive from designs by the Spanish Jesuit J.B.

Plate from Austrian architect Johann Bernard Fischer von Erlach's 'Entwurf einer historischen Architektur' ('Outline of Historical Architecture', first published 1721) , the first comparative architecture of all periods and nations. It was the most influential 18th century book illustrating Islamic architecture, treating Islamic and other eastern buildings with the same detail as the more canonical ancient buildings also included in the book.

Mosaic Found at Shellal, South Palestine on 23rd. April, 1917. The above is a reproduction of the floor or an Ancient Christian Church founded in the year 561 A.D. It was discovered by the Anzac Mounted Division after it having been greatly damaged by a Turkish Trench being dug through it. The design is allegorical and represents vine branches encircling various animals and birds. The inscription, which is broken, runs somewhat as follows:- "He provided diligently for the building of this Church here......He who was most saintly of us and the most beloved--God George. Founded in the year 622 after......(Gaza)." Roman Gaza dates from about the year 61 B.C., so that the date os the Church would be about 561 A.D.

E. Nunzer del: et sc:
[n.d., c.1730.]
Engraving, sheet c. 355 x 230mm. Some staining outside image, extreme upper left corner of image missing.
An image of Ben Sira, the author of the deuterocanonical book Sirach. The evidence seems to show that his name was Yeshua, son of Shimon, son of Eleazar ben Sira. In the Greek text, the author is called 'Jesus the son of Sirach of Jerusalem.' 'Jesus' is the Anglicized form of the Greek name ??s???. The only fact known with certainty, drawn from the text itself, is that Ben Sira was a scholar, and a scribe thoroughly versed in the Law, and especially in the 'Books of Wisdom.' He may have authored the 'The Wisdom of Jesus son of Sirach' (or merely 'Sirach') in Alexandria, Egypt c.180175 BC, where he is thought to have established a school. The book, originally written in Hebrew, is included in the Septuagint and is accepted as part of the biblical canon by Catholics and Eastern Orthodox, but not by most Protestants, and is listed in Article VI of the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England. Although it was not accepted into the Tanakh, the Jewish biblical canon, The Sirach is occasionally quoted in the Talmud and works of rabbinic literature. From an encyclopedia or religious text published in Nuremberg in Germany, where the engraver worked.
