What is Jerusalem Syndrome

Jerusalem syndrome is a psychological phenomenon that often appears to people who had signs of psychopathy when they travel to Jerusalem. When these people arrive there they become psychotic. Although this phenomenon is not a result of any certain religion, however it had an impact and has affected Christians, Jews and Muslims of too many different backgrounds. Some people think that it may also appear to people who didn't have mental illnesses or signs of psychopathy, but in a research conducted  about this syndrome proved that all the people who were diagnosed with Jerusalem syndrome, were previously experiencing psychopathy signs / problems.

History of Jerusalem Syndrome

This phenomenon was also regarded as a hysteria form. Heniz Herman, the founder of modern psychiatric research in Israel described it for the first time. Religious places such as Mecca or Rome have also had cases of this phenomenon. From 2000 and in the continuing years the cases of Jerusalem syndrome have increased.

  2. People who get obsessed by idiosyncratic ideas. This form of Jerusalem syndrome can be a simple obsession with the city of Jerusalem and it is not necessarily a form of a mental illness.
  3. People who have had a mental illness previously. This type appears after someone arrives in Jerusalem and it can be characterized by a religious character of the person. In this type there are also seen other behaviors in them including obsessions and compulsions such as:
