Description
The city of Jerusalem as seen from above the Russian Orthodox Church on the Mount of Olives.
The photograph is in a book with a typed description. The description: "(II. Samuel, xv:14.)--'And David said unto all his servants which were with him at Jerusalem, Arise and let us flee; for we shall not else escape from Absalom.' From our point of view we now move further northward, and again look across the valley of the Kedron from the Mount of Olives upon the Holy City. The swelling domes and towers and crosses of a new Russian church are at our feet. We see more tombs stretching along the eastward wall of the city to the extreme left. The Mosque of Omar, always the most conspicuous object in Jerusalem to-day, as the temple was in ancient times, stands with its enclosure of thirty-five acres of ground. There once stood the Jewish temple, and perhaps the tabernacle David pitched for the ark of the covenant before the temple was built. To the west and to the right of the mosque is the English church. This is the city from which David fled to escape from Absalom." See 5388BAI/LVii114CAJS (Voyager # 362209).
The photograph was not catalogued by Lazard--it was catalogued at CAJS.
