Holy Land Maps - Maps of the Holy Land in Old Testament Bible
THE HOLY LAND MAPS OF ISRAEL and the maps of the holy land nations which surround it. Names used are those which are either biblical or most familiar. Most areas and towns in the land of Palestine carry multiple names, owing to a long succession of conquering armies.
The Holy Land generally refers to the geographical region of the Hebrew people or Land of Israel in the Bible, and constitutes the Promised land. This holy land area, or sites within it, hold significant religious importance to at least four monotheistic Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity, Islam and the Bahá'í Faith. Part of its sanctity stems from the religious significance of Jerusalem, the holiest city to Judaism, the third-holiest to Islam, and part of the proposed Christian Pentarchy.
The holiness of this holy land was the ideological driving force behind the Crusaders' re-conquest from the Muslim rulers who controlled it since the Islamic conquests. Numerous pilgrims visited that land throughout history. For Christians, the concept of a Holy Land is derived from the renaming of the Land of Canaan as the Land of Israel.
