Rural Settlement Near Yavneh in the Byzantine Period: A Religio-Archeological Perspective

Description:
Dealing with the rural vicinity of the towns of Yavneh and Yavneh-Yam (on Israel's coastal plain) in the Byzantine period (ca. mid-4th to mid-7th centuries CE), this talk synthesizes archaeological and historical data relating to the Jewish, Christian, and Samaritan populations of this region. This study is based on the results of comprehensive archaeological surveys conducted in the region on behalf of Tel Aviv University. These surveys have revealed much new evidence including important details about the religious identity of the population. Itamar Taxel is a Fulbright Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Meyerhoff Center for Jewish Studies. His Ph.D., from Tel Aviv University's Department of Archaeology and Near Eastern Cultures, focuses on the rural settlement of central ancient Palestine in the 5th to 7th centuries CE. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 26, 2012
