The New Jerusalem: A Millennium Poetic / Prophetic Travel Diario, 1959-62 Synopsis

Robert Eisenman, renowned Biblical scholar and author of James the Brother of Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls series, and The New Testament Code, reveals an unexpectedly lyrical voice in this collection of poems, written between 1959 and 1962, beginning in San Francisco and continuing on the overland trail to India via Paris (when it was still “a Moveable Feast”), Israel, Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan. A backpacker’s journal in free verse—which can be looked upon as an “anti-Beat Manifesto” and even includes some “quasi-prophecy”—The New Jerusalem: A Millennium Poetic / Prophetic Travel Diario, 1959-62  is an intimate self-portrait of a young man at a turning point in his spiritual development.

Robert Eisenman is the author of The New Testament Code: The Cup of the Lord, the Damascus Covenant, and the Blood of Christ (2006), James the Brother of Jesus: The Key to Unlocking the Secrets of Early Christianity and the Dead Sea Scrolls (1998), The Dead Sea Scrolls and the First Christians (1996), Islamic Law in Palestine and Israel: A History of the Survival of Tanzimat and Shari'ah (1978), and co-editor of The Facsimile Edition of the Dead Sea Scrolls (1989) and The Dead Sea Scrolls Uncovered (1992).

He is Emeritus Professor of Middle East Religions and Archaeology and the former Director of the Institute for the Study of Judeo-Christian Origins at California State University Long Beach and Visiting Senior Member of Linacre College, Oxford. He holds a B.A. from Cornell University in Philosophy and Engineering Physics (1958), an M.A. from New York University in Near Eastern Studies (1966), and a Ph.D from Columbia University in Middle East Languages and Cultures and Islamic Law (1971). He was a Senior Fellow at the Oxford Centre for Postgraduate Hebrew Studies and an American Endowment for the Humanities Fellow-in-Residence at the Albright Institute of Archaeological Research in Jerusalem, where the Dead Sea Scrolls were first examined.
