Product Description:

JERUSALEM: CENTER OF THE WORLD uses the ancient city as a lens through which to chronicle the birth and divergence of the three major religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. The rigorously researched documentary analyzes 4,000 years of history, covering the city's founding and comparing the accounts of its development found in each religion's holy texts.

Description by PBS Video:

Jerusalem: Center of the World tells the epic story of the world's most incredible city, capturing the rich mosaic of the city's Christian, Jewish and Muslim communities. Covering a sweeping history of over 4,000 years, the film explores the founding of the city; the birth and convergence of the world's three major monotheistic religions; and the key events in Jerusalem's history as described in the Hebrew and Christian Bibles, the Talmud, the Hagaddah, the Koran, and the Hadith. Highlights include: Mount Moriah, the site of the First and Second Temples; the Church of the Holy Sepulcher; the Dome of the Rock; and the Western Wall. Directed by Andrew Goldberg, and hosted by Ray Suarez (The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer), the film includes interviews with locals, top scholars and clergy.
