Item Description...
Archaeology has unearthed the glories of ancient Jewish buildings throughout the Mediterranean. But what has remained shrouded is what these buildings meant. Building Jewish surveys the architecture of small rural villages in Galilee in the early Roman period before examining the development of synagogues as Jewish associations. Building Jewish also explores Jerusalem's flurry of building activity under Herod the Great in the first century BCE. Richardson's careful work not only documents the culture that forms the background to any study of Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity, but it also succeeds in demonstrating how architecture itself, like a text, conveys meaning-thus directly illuminating daily life and religious thought in the ancient world.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A study of ancient Jewish archaeology in the Mediterranean  Mar 7, 2005
Building Jewish In The Roman East is a scholarly study of ancient Jewish archaeology in the Mediterranean, particularly in small rural villages in Galileein the early Roman period, the development of synagogues as "Jewish associations", and the rush of construction under Herod the Great in the first century BCE. Extensively researched chapters scrutinize tombs, the historical significancd of Biblical events such as Jesus' protest in the Temple Precincts, architectural transitions from synagogues and house churches to purpose-built churches, and much more. An inset selection of color plates rounds out this fascinating, unique, and in-depth examination of historic Jewish architectural designs and motives.
