Merchants and Miracles: Global Circulations and the Making of Modern Bethlehem

Merchants and Miracles is an AHRC funded project exploring modern Bethlehem and its history of global connectivity. The project will produce a book on the life of one merchant from the town, and an archive that makes publicly available a large collection of digital objects relating to Bethlehem and its global diaspora. For updates on the archive's progress please visit our project blog:
