One of the earliest references to Jerusalem was found in documents dating back to 1436. Simon Sebag Montefiore states that the village dates back to this period, when 'pilgrimage to Jerusalem' was "wildly popular" but travelling to the city of Jerusalem was either not a practical proposition or it was too hostile a location.
