Lecture | Greek Kings and Judaean Priests in the Late Antique Synagogue

Lectures, May 05, 2017, 05/05/2017, Greek Kings and Judaean Priests in the Late Antique Synagogue

Friday, May 5, 2017, 11:00 am

Free

The 2013–15 excavations in the Late Roman (fifth century) synagogue at Huqoq revealed a mosaic depicting a subject that is unparalleled in ancient synagogue art. The mosaic panel displays an enigmatic narrative over three registers of unequal size. Although there are no inscriptions identifying the episodes represented, the presence of battle elephants and period-specific dress sets the Huqoq mosaic apart in the corpus of ancient synagogue art. In all other known synagogues, the subject matter depicted in narrative scenes derives from the Hebrew Bible.

The presentation focuses on what we believe are the likeliest interpretations of the events portrayed in this mosaic. The iconography and composition of the mosaic, when set alongside Jewish and non-Jewish textual traditions, suggest that it portrays an historical event, either real or invented, from the late Classical or Hellenistic periods. The memorialization of a non-biblical event in a synagogue challenges conventional scholarly assumptions concerning the historical consciousness of Jews in late antique Galilee. We suggest that Jewish knowledge of and interest in the past were not governed solely by the reiteration of biblical narrative in liturgy, homily, and art, but also incorporated historical events and figures from the relatively recent past.
 
Lecturer Ra‘anan Boustan, Associate Professor in the Department of History at UCLA, is currently a Visiting Research Scholar in the Program in Judaic Studies at Princeton University.
