We search for the villainous King Herod, then descend into the tomb of the Virgin Mary to discover why it contains a sacred Muslim symbol.

Starting in the Middle Ages, the video recounts Jerusalem's revival under the Mamluks, its conquest by the Ottomans, how the city came to be prized by the great powers of 19th-century Europe, and the eventual emergence of Zionism.
