Something to Add to Your Bookmarks: Jerusalem- Fall of a City

In 586 BCE, the city of Jerusalem fell to the Babylonian army and to its king, Nebuchadnezzar. Though Jerusalem was just one of many capital cities destroyed by the Babylonians, its destruction triggered significant changes in the intellectual, cultural, religious and political identities of the people associated with the city. The effects of these changes continue to reverberate in the modern Middle East and among the global Jewish, Muslim and Christian populations. This virtual exhibition about the city is designed to explore how Jerusalem, a small Iron Age city state, became the world’s religious capital and an ethereal symbol of the theological imagination.

Check it out.  Many fantastic images and much information are included.
