Summary
"Art and Judaism in the Greco-Roman World: Toward a New Jewish Archaeology explores the Jewish experience with art from the Hellenistic era through the rise of Islam. It starts from the premise that Jewish art in antiquity was a "minority" or "ethnic" art and surveys ways that Jews fully participated in, transformed, and at times rejected the art of their general environment. Placing literary sources in careful dialogue with archaeological discoveries, this "New Jewish Archaeology" is an important contribution to Judaic studies, religious studies, art history, and classics."--Jacket
