9780060672713: The Zealous Intruders: The Western Rediscovery of Palestine

This is a most interesting account of how the West rediscovered Palestine, telling of the explorers like Seetzen and Buckhardt, using Palestine to train for Arabia, scholars like Robinson and Tristram, who struggled to match scriptural truth with scientific progress, and painters like Holman Hunt who tried to portray it. Tourists, antiquarians, consuls, scholars, archaeologists, pilgrims and 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 and anxieties in Europe and America, Palestine defied & resisted the West as strongly as it obsessed and challenged it.
