Subject: The Formation of the Way of the Cross in Late-Medieval Jerusalem

Supervisors: Prof. Ronnie Ellenblum and Prof. Iris Shagrir 

Abstract: The Way of the Cross has been one of Jerusalem’s most prominent axes for Christian worship in the past 700 years or so, at least from the Latin-Christian perspective. Although its production process finds its roots in the Crusader period, the Way of the Cross flourished and became a stable part of the pilgrimage circuit while Jerusalem was under Muslim rule, and while the Christians were limited by changing restriction of movement, worship and ownership. My dissertation deals with the formation of the Way of the Cross in Late Medieval Jerusalem.
