About this Item: KTAV Publishing House, Inc, 1979. Hardcover. Condition: vg. Augmented edition. Lg. 4to. xxi,468,78,12pp. Mottled blue cloth with gold lettering on spine in original illustrated dust jacket. "Since its discovery in 1932, the Synagogue at the Syrian city of Dura-Europos has evoked unusual interest and widespread discussion chiefly because of its elaborate decoration with paintings representing scenes from the Hebrew Bible. This volume, edited by the director of the University of Chicago's Oriental Institute and a team of Yale experts, is the complete and official report on the Synagogue and its place in the history of Dura and in the Judaism of the early Christian era. The detailed description of this Synagogue presents the layout and locations of the buildings, their decorations, their furnishings and inscriptions. It then proceeds to give the history of the Jewish community at Dura and the relationship between the paintings and the religious thought of the community. Added to this new edition is a general index, a glossary of Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, and Latin words, citations, an index of Aramaic, Greek, and Middle-Iranian inscriptions from the Synagogue, corrections to the first edition, and a listing of Middle Iranian words and proper names. Published in 1965 by Yale University Press, The Synagogue has been much sought after by biblical scholars, and scholars interested in the history of Judaism. This reprint edition includes all the original 117 black and white photographs, 32 color plates, and 12 floor plans." The color plates show painted wall panels, the ceiling, and Torah shrine. Includes some b/w in-text drawings. Foreword by Professor Jaroslav Pelikan. As new. Seller Inventory # 27575
