Origins and resilience: The Vitality of Judaism in Archaeology, Art and Texts

The origins of Judaism in the period 900 BCE to 700 CE can be explored through a combination of archaeology, art and texts. It is a story of a Jewish world immersed in and imprinted by the peoples among whom they lived – Egyptians, Babylonians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs – and out of which emerged concepts fundamental to the development of early Christianity and Islam. The result was an outpouring of extraordinary architecture and visual art as well as astonishing literature, poetry and theology. The story has never been told through a public exhibition and this talk will explore early thinking about how it might be made a reality. It would challenge misconceptions about Judaism and its place in antiquity.
