The paper discusses political events in the history of Jerusalem and plural aspirations to this place which for different reasons has become central to the sacred geography of adherents of the three religions of Abraham. The city has been a deeply rooted part of Jewish, Christian and Muslim identity. The fact that in the course of centuries Jerusalem became a holy city for three religions led to many clashes, conflicts, invasions and occupations resulting from rivalries between powers aspiring for control in that part of levant. The authoress analyzes this situation since the end of World War I till the John Paul II's pontificate.
