Cityof Refuge

City of Refuge, any one of six cities in ancient Palestine, which were set apart as sanctuaries for those who had unwittingly committed manslaughter. Three on the east of the Jordan - Bezer, Golan, and Ramoth - were established by Moses, and three on the West - Hebron, Kadesh, and Shechem - were set apart by Joshua. Medina became a city of refuge to Mahomet.
