1454 Steven Fine – The Arch of Titus
After talking about the synagogue and menorah image excavated at Magdala with Steven Fine of Yeshiva University, we transitioned to a discussion of another menorah image on the Arch of Titus in Rome. Professor Fine is involved in research that has uncovered vestiges of pigment, indicating the arch was very colorful when it was first constructed. He’s also narrated a video on the arch for Khan Academy (above).
We also include a short discussion of his research on the Samaritans.
