Contents:
Religion and architecture in the eastern Mediterranean -- Part one: -- Towns and villages -- Jesus and Palestinian social protest in archaeological and literary perspective -- 3D visualizations of a first-century Galilean town -- Khirbet Qana (and other villages) as a context for Jesus -- First-century houses and Q's setting -- What has Cana to do with Capernaum? -- Part two: -- Synagogues and churches -- Pre-70 synagogues as collegia in Rome, the diaspora, and Judea -- Architectural transitions from synagogues and house churches to purpose-built churches -- Philo and Eusebius on monasteries and monasticism: the therapeutae and kellia -- Jewish voluntary associations in Egypt and the roles of women -- Building a "synodos ... and a place of their own" -- An architectural case for synagogues as associations -- Part three: -- Judea and Jerusalem -- Law and piety in herod's architecture -- Why turn the tables? Jesus' protest in the temple precincts -- Josephus, Nicolas of Damascus, and Herod's building program -- Origins, innovations and significance of Herod's temple -- Herod's temple architecture and Jerusalem's tombs -- The James' ossuary's decoration and social setting -- Building Jewish in the Roman east.
Summary: Archaeology has unearthed the glories of ancient Jewish buildings throughout the Mediterranean. But what has remained shrouded is what these buildings meant. Building Jewish surveys the architecture of small rural villages in Galilee in the early Roman period before examining the development of synagogues as Jewish associations. Building Jewish also explores Jerusalem's flurry of building activity under Herod the Great in the first century BCE. Richardson's careful work not only documents the culture that forms the background to any study of Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity, but it.
