This book brings together the various contributions made at a conference on this subject which took place on the 10th February 2012 in the Maison de l’Orient et de la Méditerranée in Lyon.
At this meeting, professors of Arabic, Hebrew scholars, historians, art historians, archaeologists and researchers discussed these two cities, both with a wealth of history, replete with archaeological remains and magnified by their symbolic and mythical value, and contrasted their spatial and social realities and their monuments with their fictional reconstructions in literary, graphic or even academic works.
The book is divided into two clearly distinct parts:
- Babylonia, with chapters about the origin of Babylonia, the myths and archaeological realities, the presence of Babylonia in the Hebrew Bible, the Tower of Babel and romantic ruins among other subjects.
- Granada, with works on archaeology as a tool for the deconstruction of myths, the urban development of Granada, Granada in Hebrew poetry and Arabic literature …etc.
This work was coordinated by Katia Zakharia and is undoubtedly a source of “different and contrasting viewpoints” of Granada, amongst the already wide range of visions of our city.
