Western Palestine is extremely rich in Arabic inscriptions , whose dates range from as early as CE 150 until modern times . Most of the inscriptions date from the Islamic period , for under Islam the country gained particular religious and strategic importance , even though it made up only part of the larger province of Syria .
This historical importance is clearly reflected in the hundreds of inscriptiions , the texts of which cover a variety of topics : construction , dedication , religious endowments , epitaphs , Qu’ranic texts , prayers and invocations , all now assembled in the Corpus Inscriptionum Arabicarum Palestine (CIAP).
