Sažetak
The following presentation puts forward analyses of representations and descriptions of Jerusalem in printed, mainly pilgrim travelogues, according to three topics that extensively reflect Early Modern Europe’s perception of the Holy City. 1. The influence of the medieval theological geography on Jerusalem’s cartographic position. In the earliest printed accounts of Jerusalem we can easily discern the influence of the medieval theological geography, primarily the notion of Jerusalem as the center of the world. This influence faded in the late 16th, and subsequently, the 17th centuries. 2. The issue of the location of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. In the Middle Ages, the location of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre had a crucial theological and symbolic significance. Attempts to explain the positioning of the Calvary inside the city walls of Jerusalem have been made. In the second half of the 16th century an “archaeological” attitude prevails. In the 17th century, representations of Biblical Jerusalem, with a precisely marked location of the Calvary, became rather common. 3. The identification of Solomon’s temple. Medieval pilgrims were generally convinced that the octagonal temple upon the hill was the Holy Temple built by King Solomon. They therefore attempted to explain its existence by means of pseudo-historical concepts. In the beginning of the 17th century there is a definite amendment of the old inaccurate beliefs, which nevertheless persisted (remained) in many descriptions and illustrations.
