Michael Satlow: Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine project presentation

Thursday, December 18th, 19:00 יום חמישי, נר שלישי של חנוכה, 18 בדצמבר

at the open hub, ground floor of the national library (next to the cafeteria)

Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine project, an ongoing project at Brown University, seeks to collect and make accessible over the Web all of the previously published inscriptions (and their English translations) of Israel/Palestine from the Persian period through the Islamic conquest (ca. 500 BCE – 640 CE). There are about 15,000 of these inscriptions, written primarily in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Latin, by Jews, Christians, Greeks, and Romans. They range from imperial declarations on monumental architecture to notices of donations in synagogues to humble names scratched on ossuaries, and include everything in between.
