There has been serious political tension, scholarly debate, and religious controversy concerning the Dome of the Rock ever since its construction in the 7th century AD. Some claim it is built on the Holy of Holies of Solomon’s Temple; others believe that it marks the spot where the young Jesus preached to the Elders; and still others regard it as the spot from which Mohammed ascended to Heaven. Whatever the belief, Jews, Christians and Moslems hold the Rock over which the Dome of the Rock is built to be in some fashion holy. This lecture traces the history of the Rock and the Dome of the Rock from the second millennium BC to present times.
