Millennium Maps of the Holy Land from Carta
Millenarianism (or Millennialism) has fascinated a great number of people for ages, mainly, but not only, as it relates to the Coming of the Messiah. As arguments, theories and heart's desires are proffered, one fact cannot be overlooked. At the turn of each and every millennium from 1000 BC to AD 2000, The Land of Israel, Terra Sancta, The Holy Land, that small patch on the face of the earth, was under Jewish or Christian custody. The four maps show the territorial extent at the turn of the four millennia from the days of the First Temple to the establishment of The State of Israel.
Millennium Maps of the Holy Land portray the extent of territorial control of the Holy Land at the turn of four millennia:
- First Millennium B.C.: The Kingdom of David and Solomon;
- the First Millennium: The Birth of Jesus;
- the Second Millennium: The Crusader Kingdoms;
- and the Third Millennium: Israel Restored.
