Conrad Schick and His World

Conrad Schick is often regarded as the first “scholar of Jerusalem”. He began his activity in Jerusalem in 1846 under the auspices of the missionary society of St. Chrischona. Shortly, his service as a surveyor to the British Ordnance Survey of Jerusalem (1864-1865) paved the way for his long collaboration with the European scientific societies of the PEF and DPV. Schick published hundreds of articles in scientific journals, engaged in archaeological excavations, drafted maps and built 3D models of key sites in Jerusalem. Upon request of the Ottoman authorities to produce an accurate model of the Temple Mount in 1872-3, Schick became one of the very few European scholars who received unrestricted access to the underground areas of the compound. Schick also engaged in architecture and planned many notable buildings and neighbourhoods.

Many of Schick’s works remain unpublished in archives. Hence, his contribution has been underestimated and the historical environment of his activities has been not fully understood. Furthermore, new excavations targeted sites that Schick explored. Our aim in the conference is to evaluate Schick’s activities and his contribution to the exploration of the Holy Land. Side to side with Schick’s work, we will focus on the historical background of the European involvement in Jerusalem that paved the way for a self-educated German protestant individual to take a leading role in archaeological, geographical, and biblical research.

The two-day conference will take place in Jerusalem, February 6-7, 2023. In addition to paper presentations, the academic program will include a field trip to sites in Jerusalem connected with Conrad Schick.

We invite paper proposals (300 words) on the theme of the conference. Paper proposals may address, inter alia, the following suggested topics:
1. Conrad Schick – a man, a scholar, and an architect.
2. Schick’s archaeological contribution, including new research/excavations on sites that he previously explored as well as studies of his archival materials.
3. New studies on the 3D models produced by Conrad Schick, including studies relating to the sites as these are represented in the models and works on models as cultural heritage.
4. Retrospective of Schick’s achievements in architecture, bible study, geography, and the explorations of the Holy Land.
5. Schick’s enterprises with non-Christian groups/organisations, such as Jewish neighbourhood committees and the Ottoman authorities.
6. Schick’s architecture in its contemporary comparison: technology, funding, materials; European19th century building activity in Jerusalem and Conrad Schick.
7. Present conservation of Conrad Schick’s buildings.
8. Schick and his neighbours: new historical research on key personalities/events in Jerusalem in the 19th century.
9. New studies on European scientific and missionary societies in the late 19th century in Jerusalem.

Paper proposal should be submitted by the deadline of **7 August 2022** .

We are looking forward to receiving your proposal,

Chair/Organiser: Dr. David Gurevich (University of Haifa)
Academic Committee: Dr. Dotan Goren, Dr. David Gurevich (University of Haifa), Dr. Hayah Katz (Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee), Prof. Ronny Reich (University of Haifa), Dr. Katharina Schmidt (Albright Institute), Prof. Dieter Vieweger (German Protestant Institute for Archaeology).
