Professor at The Open University

Major works

Prof. Limor is about to complete a book on early medieval pilgrimage narratives (7th to 11th centuries, the first Muslim period in the Holy Land), following her book Holy Land Travels: Christian Pilgrims in Late Antiquity (Jerusalem 1998),
which won the Ben-Zvi prize for best research on the Holy Land for the year 2000. At the same time, she was making progress on another volume: The Mount of Olives: A Biography. This book is a cultural history of the Mount in Christianity,
Judaism and Islam. It engages with the many holy traditions of the Mount and aims to decipher its significance in the religious imagination.
