The complex interaction of religion and politics, and the involvement of Christians in politics, has been a constant theme in the religious culture of Jerusalem

The complex interaction of religion and politics, and the involvement of Christians in politics, has been a constant theme in the religious culture of Jerusalem. The essays collected here provide a comprehensive historical, religious and political survey of the Christian communities of modern Jerusalem. Individual essays deal with topics ranging from church-state relations to women missionaries and various expressions of Eastern and Western Christian presence and, taken as a whole, offer a fascinating overview of Christianity in the Holy Land at the beginning of a new century.

If the delicate dance between religion and politics can work here, in this diverse, tense place where religion is the raison d’être, it can work anywhere. After the State of Israel, the Patriarchate is the nation’s largest landholder, even owning the land upon which the Knesset building stands today. This is what helped the institution and the Christian presence in the Holy Land maintain itself through the ages. While globalized society, especially in the Middle East, continues to face dilemmas that are being articulated in the form of a choice between secular or religious rule, it’s important to remember that there need not be a choice at all.

Still they remain a very important and visible presence in the societies of Israel and Palestine.

Cardiff: University of Wales Press, 2003. The mass expulsion of both Muslim and Christian Palestinians at that time and the subsequent influx of several million Jews from the Middle East and Europe have reduced the number of Christians to a mere 2% of the total population, or roughly 200,000, mostly Arab Palestinians divided primarily among the two most ancient churches, Greek Orthodox and Catholic (both Roman and. Eastern-rite), with much smaller numbers of Armenians, Copts, and Protestants. Still they remain a very important and visible presence in the societies of Israel and Palestine.

In both cases, Christians are a minority in societies defined partly by religion, where suspicions of the "other" are turbo-charged by fear. Palestinians living in the West Bank and in East Jerusalem hold different residency cards, and they cannot move from one to the other without special permits. As a result, it can be virtually impossible for a Christian in Bethlehem to travel to Jerusalem to worship in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
