Jerusalem in Arabic Folklore, Legends and Myths (in Arabic)

Auther : Mohammad R. Al-Naggar

Throughout the ages, Jerusalem has been associated, in the Arab public conscience, with religious and consequently national consciousness as no other Arab city has, with the exception of course, of Mecca and Al-Madina (the sacred geographical era). The impact of this association is reflected, and even stamped, on the dialectic of influencing and being influenced by the folklore pertaining to this age-old city and on its legendary, historical, cultural and folkloric heritage, particularly the aspect of folk religious beliefs and practices. In the light of the criteria of religious, geographical and linguistic folklore, Jerusalem is indeed a holy city.

This research however, will, from an ethnographic and folkloric perspective, confine itself to this holy city in terms of position and situation, trying to demonstrate its place and status within Arab folklores, legendary and mythical literature of demonstrative and religious nature which have been woven about this city and delivered, from one generation to another.

All in all, this research is built upon two basic axes:

* Jerusalem in Legends, myths and oral history.

* Jerusalem in oral traditions (religious poetry, jihad and resistance literature, folk-tales and The Arabian Nights, popular theatre, heroic literature, Arab folk epics and folk-songs).
