As Herodotus himself reveals, Halicarnassus, though a Dorian city, had ended its close relations with its Dorian neighbours after an unseemly quarrel (I, 144), and it had helped pioneer Greek trade with Egypt (II,178). It was therefore an outward-looking, international-minded port within the Persian Empire and the historian's family could well have had contacts in countries under Persian rule, facilitating his travels and his researches. His eye-witness accounts indicate that he travelled in Egypt probably sometime after 454 BC or possibly earlier in association with Athenians

traditional view

-sovereign local entity. The term '''city-state''' which originated in English (alongside the German '''Stadtstaat''') does not fully translate the Greek term. The ''poleis'' were not like other primordial ancient city-states like Tyre (Tyre, Lebanon) or Sidon, which were ruled by a king or a small oligarchy, but rather a political entity ruled by its body of citizens.

''History of the Transmission of Ancient Books to Modern Times'' (London, 1827) and ''The Process of Historical Proof'' (London, 1828) were later remodelled as a single work (1859), in which he attempted to show grounds for accepting literary documents like the Bible as a basis for history. Next appeared an expurgated translation of Herodotus (London, 1829), work which seems to have suggested an anonymous romance, ''The Temple of Melekartha'' (London, 1831), dealing with the prehistoric migration of the Tyrians (Tyre, Lebanon) from the Persian Gulf to the Levant. Taylor is said to have depicted his wife in the heroine. His next and best-known work, ''The Natural History of Enthusiasm'' (London; Boston, 1830; 10th edit. London, 1845), appeared anonymously in May 1829. It was a sort of historico-philosophical disquisition on religious imagination, and had an instant vogue. Taylor developed the subject in his ''Fanaticism'' (London, 1833; 7th edit. 1866) and ''Spiritual Despotism'' (London, 1835, three editions). Three further volumes on scepticism, credulity, and the corruption of morals were included in the author's plan of a ‘morbid anatomy of spurious religion,’ but these complementary volumes were never completed.

Jerusalem and the Davidic Covenant David conquers the Jebusite fortress of Jerusalem, and makes it his capital, and "Hiram (King Hiram I) king of Tyre (Tyre, Lebanon) sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, also carpenters and masons who built David a house." David brings the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem, intending to build a temple, but God, speaking to the prophet Nathan (Nathan (Prophet)),is pleased, saying the temple will be built. God makes a covenant with David, promising that he will establish the house of David : "Your throne shall be established forever." Following Tughtakin's death in 1128, his son, Taj al-Din Buri, became the nominal ruler of Damascus.
