Jerusalem is the extraordinary city where some of the Western world's most enduring ideas were developed. A distinguished panel will tell the story of the ancient city and of its people of diverse faiths and cultures through forays into its most inaccessible holdings: hidden Jewish archives, rare manuscripts in Christian and Islamic libraries, and the riches of its Armenian heritage.
