VIRTUAL - More Than Just Mosaics: New Discoveries in the Ancient Synagogue at Huqoq in Israel’s Galilee

February 26, 2021 @ 4:00 pm Mountain Time

This is an online event.



AIA Society: Edmonton

Lecturer: Jodi Magness

Since 2011, Professor Jodi Magness has been directing excavations in the ancient village of Huqoq in Israel’s Galilee.  The excavations have brought to light the remains of a monumental Late Roman (fifth century) synagogue building paved with stunning and unique mosaics, including biblical scenes such as Noah’s Ark and the Tower of Babel, and the first non-biblical story ever discovered decorating an ancient synagogue.  In this slide-illustrated lecture, Professor Magness describes these exciting finds, including the discoveries made in last summer’s season.
