Roger Grasas Ha Aretz The Promised Land

Named after the Aramaic language spoken by Jesus Christ and referring to the Holy Land, Ha Aretz is a reinterpretation of the biblical stories amidst a globalized world of alien­ation and conflict.
Based on a deep historiographic research and compiled with photos taken throughout all the countries that make up the Holy Land, the work documents the precise locations where the most celebrated events of the Holy Scriptures supposedly took place, beginning with Gene­sis and Exodus and passing through the life of Jesus up to the Revelation. From the river Nile to the Sea of Galilee, Damascus to Bethlehem or Mount Sinai to Babylon, Ha Aretz reflects on the evolution of the ancestral regions that represent the epicenter of Jewish, Christian, and Arab cultures, while attesting to the power that geopolitics, capitalism, and technology exert in our times. The booklet describes the relevance of the place then and now.
