9780002174329: Zealous Intruders the Western Rediscover

This is a most interesting account of how the West rediscovered Palestine, telling of the explorers like Seetzen & Buckhardt, using Palestine to train for Arabia, scholars like Robinson & Tristram, who struggled to match scriptural truth with scientific progress, & painters like Holman Hunt who tried to portray it. Tourists, antiquarians, consuls, scholars, archeologists, pilgrims & missionaries all led to the greatest rush to the Holy Land since the Crusades. A comprehensively authoritative review from Napoleon to the dawn of Zionism. Thus rescued from oblivion, the object of so many interests, fantasies & anxieties in Europe & America, Palestine defied & resisted the West as strongly as it obsessed & challenged it.
