About the Project

'Jerusalem: Fall of a City—Rise of a Vision' is a project of the Society for Old Testament Study (SOTS), the society for the study of the Hebrew Bible / Old Testament in Britain and Ireland, undertaken as part of the Society's centenary celebrations in 2017. It has been led by Dr Carly Crouch (Nottingham) and Dr Jonathan Stökl (King's College London), with the assistance of Dr Holly Morse (Manchester), Dr Natasha O'Hear (St Andrews), Dr Josef Briffa (Pontifical Biblical Institute), Dr Jessica Keady (Helsinki), Dr Penelope Barter (Tilburg) and Catherine Quine (Nottingham).

The Society's membership is made up of scholars working in the British Isles, with some additional members resident in Europe, North America, and Israel. The expertise of this membership has led to the principal focus of this exhibition being on the imagination of Jerusalem in the Jewish and Christian traditions, although the city's significance in the Muslim tradition merits attention in its own right. 

Vistors interested in the Hebrew Bible / Old Testament may also wish to visit the SOTS Wiki, with articles on numerous topics relevant to the study of these books.
