The expression The Holy Land generally refers to the country of Israel and the historic geographical region of Palestine. It concerns the areas that hold significant religious importance to the three monotheistic Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Part of its sanctity stems from the religious significance of Jerusalem and its importance as the Land of Israel.

The Crusades were started on the pretext of recovering the Holy Land from the Muslims.
