I'd never heard of this before reading an article this morning.  Upon searching the internet, I find numerous articles about it.

 

 

“Jerusalem syndrome is a phenomenon aware of people, pilgrims, tourists who come to Jerusalem are so overwhelmed by the sense of holiness here that something happens to them. And certain fantasies, redemption fantasies of making the world a better place overcome them, and they believe they have a messianic mission which they must fulfill," http://www.thevintag...-the-holy-city/

People will take the hotel bed sheets and wear them as robes.

 

on the second day of their stay inJerusalem, when they began to feel an inexplicable nervousness and anxiety. If they came with a group or family they suddenly felt a need to be on their own and left the others.  They would often begin to perform acts of purification, or cleansing, such as immersion in a mikva (ritual bath). Often the patients changed their clothes in an effort to resemble biblical figures, for example dressing in white robes, because most of them chose to identify themselves with a character from the New or Old Testament.   http://www.jewishvir...usalem-syndrome

Psychologists have already documented that their patents tend to switch from telling stories about being abducted by aliens to ones about devil worshiping occults roughly every eight years as Hollywood changes from emphasizing one genre over another. I would be shocked and amazed if every major religious cite in the world did not experience the same thing.

They say that David Koresh, cult leader, may have had Jerusalem Syndrome.

 

David Koresh, who spent time in Jerusalem, may have been affected by the Syndrome, but its effect was protracted, since only after he returned to the U.S. did he proclaim himself the messiah and found his sect at Waco, Texas.

I get religion. Then I lose it. Then I get it again. It's a perennial.
