Jordan - Wadi Rum - Seven Pillars of Wisdom
Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph is the autobiographical account of the experiences of British soldier T. E. Lawrence while serving as a liaison officer with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks of 1916 to 1918.
The title comes from the Book of Proverbs, 9:1: "Wisdom hath
builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars" (KJV).
Prior to the First World War, Lawrence had begun work on a scholarly
book about seven great cities of the Middle East, to be titled Seven
Pillars of Wisdom. When war broke out, it was still incomplete and
Lawrence stated that he ultimately destroyed the manuscript.
Later, during the Arab Revolt of 1917–18, Lawrence based his operations in Wadi Rum (now a part of Jordan), and one of the more impressive rock formations in the area was named by Lawrence "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom". In the end, Lawrence decided to use this evocative title for the memoirs he penned in the aftermath
