This course will explore the architectural and iconographic traditions of ancient synagogues of the Roman and Byzantine world, from the late Second Temple Period to the seventh century C.E. We will consider the origin, function, and administration of the ancient synagogue, and the socio-cultural milieu from which the synagogue emerged. Special attention will be given to the following topics: the archaeology of synagogues, developments in synagogue architecture, the iconography of decorative art, and relations between Jews and Christians and their religious architecture. The course structure will emphasize student led presentations and group projects, with some lectures.
