‘The Rediscovery of the Holy Land in the Nineteenth Century’ tells the story of the exploration of the Holy Land and creates the basis for a further study of the historical geography of Israel in modern times. This is a fascinating chapter in the long history of the country. The Land of the Bible had been terra incognita from a scientific point of view, but by the end of the century, the foundations for the scientific study of the country were firmly laid down. Surveys, maps, traveler’s sketches, artists’ paintings and engravings brought the people and scenery of the Land to the attention of a a wider public.
