Juliette Soulez, Insomnia, January, With Naturalism in his intellect and the Scriptures in his heart, Moore started his mission and followed the footsteps of Renan in the Holy land.
He majored in Semitic philology, especially in Middle East ancient languages and civilizations. He was dissatisfied with the version of Christianity he was educated in, a feeling George Moore knew too well, so he refrained from becoming a priest. The Emperor decided to protect the Christians there, and thus, Renan crossed the Mediterranean in a vessel with French soldiers.
He wrote, and his sister copied saying joyfully: Because we have done it together. And because I like it! He was seeking knowledge and inspiration. He wanted to find the truth about the Messiah by being the Messiah. Mitchell , in her biography of Moore, indicates: It was, he declared, the copy of the Bible, which his friend Mary Hunter gave him as a Christmas present. However, this is just a disguise to the many sources of inspiration he experienced. His lifelong obsession with Biblical mythology was the drive. Besides, he had already dreamt of it and visualized it. This is enough evidence that he was influenced by Renan.

Moore embarked on the bluest of blue seas. With Marseilles, he says, my quest really began. When I looked on those white shores rising behind me out of the blue water into the twilight, the precipitous chalk worn and corroded by the wind into battlements and parapets and towers, reminding the beholder of Valhallas builded [sic] by gods that have been — a beautiful phrase of William Morris. Like Renan, yet 50 years later, Moore wanted to discover Palestine on horseback.

There, he started his great vocation — writing The Brook Kerith. Both showed, in their books, the minute details of the scenery, weather, environment, inhabitants and places in Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and Syria. In describing Galilee and Nazareth, Renan writes about the weather, the architecture, the people and the plantation.

He makes comparisons between the past and the present, between one place and another:. Nazareth was a small town in a hollow, opening broadly at the summit of the group of mountains which close the plain of Esdraelon on the north… The cold there is sharp in winter, and the climate very healthy.

The town, like all the small Jewish towns at this period, was a heap of huts built without style, and would exhibit that harsh and poor aspect which villages in Semitic countries now present. The houses, it seems, did not differ much from those cubes of stone, without exterior or interior elegance, which still cover the richest parts of the Lebanon, and which, surrounded with vines and fig-trees, are still very agreeable.
Even in our times Nazareth is still a delightful abode, the only place, perhaps, in Palestine in which the mind feels itself relieved from the burden which oppresses it in this unequalled desolation. It also shows that this single aspect of harmony with nature was the source of his transfiguration and divinity:. A beautiful external nature tended to produce a much less austere spirit -- a spirit less sharply monotheistic, if I may use the expression -- which imprinted a charming and idyllic character on all the dreams of Galilee.
The saddest country in the world is perhaps the region round about Jerusalem. Galilee, on the contrary, was a very green, shady, smiling district, the true home of the Song of Songs, and the songs of the well-beloved. During the two months of March and April the country forms a carpet of flowers of an incomparable variety of colors.
The animals are small and extremely gentle -- delicate and lively turtle-doves, blue-birds so light that they rest on a blade of grass without bending it, crested larks which venture almost under the feet of the traveller, little river tortoises with mild and lively eyes, storks with grave and modest mien, which, laying aside all timidity, allow man to come quite near them, and seem almost to invite his approach.
In no country in the world do the mountains spread themselves out with more harmony or inspire higher thoughts. Jesus seems to have had a peculiar love for them. The most important acts of his divine career took place upon the mountains. Not only can Galilee be drawn with so accurate details, but also as a map with the names of places surrounding it. After all, he is a historian who appreciates details and analyzes them to arrive to conclusions on what really happened or what even did not happen, what is probable and what is plausible.
Renan could not but contrast the Holy Land to his home country in an attempt to arrive at a better understanding of this attachment with Galilee:. Jesus lived and grew amid these enchanting scenes. This contented and easily satisfied life was not like the gross materialism of our peasantry, the coarse pleasures of agricultural Normandy, or the heavy mirth of the Flemish.
