Jews in the Roman Empire

Event Type: Branch

Takes Place: 20th February 2020

Time: 8.00pm

Venue: Fellowship House, 136A Willifield Way, London NW11 6YD

Description: Dr Noy is currently Associate Lecturer at the Open University. His distinguished career includes a period working on the Jewish Inscriptions Project (Cambridge) and he has published several books, mostly on the Roman Empire including one entitled Foreigners at Rome: Citizens and Strangers. Dr Noy will argue that despite several failed revolts and the imposition of a special tax, Jews were able to flourish in many parts of the Roman Empire, as the remains of their synagogues and burial sites show. Things started to change under the Christian emperors of the 4th century. Dr Noy has given well‐received lectures to our branch several times and we are delighted to be welcoming him back.

Price: Free to members. £3.00 for non-members.
