VIRTUAL - A Newly-Discovered Winery at Jezreel, Israel, and its Bloody Biblical Connections

March 3, 2021 @ 7:30 pm EST Eastern Time

This is an online event.

AIA Society: Western Carolina

Lecturer: Jennie R. Ebeling

The beverage described most frequently in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, wine played important roles in the ancient Israelite diet, economy, and religious life. The recent discovery of a large, well preserved winery complex cut into the limestone bedrock at Jezreel, in the fertile Jezreel Valley in Israel’s Galilee, offers new insights into the technology and scale of wine production in the region during the Iron Age (ca. 1200-586 BCE). The Jezreel winery also provides context for the dramatic story of Naboth’s vineyard in 1 Kings 21 and the events that brought down the House of Ahab, including the gruesome death of ancient Israel’s infamous Queen Jezebel.
