Copyright Information

The images on the Historic Views of the Holy Land are copyrighted. However, the intention has been to be generous in granting use of the images for personal, educational, and church use. Since we get many questions about what is allowed, we have made a little chart for allowed uses and those which require separate permission. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.
