      Dura Europos looms large in the history of Jewish Art not only because of its place as the earliest example of Jewish Art but also because its achievements are seemingly at odds with the conceptual and halachic problems it presents. The book is accompanied by 31 photographic b/w plates of the beautiful frescoes, as well as 57 b/w illustrations of the works found in Dura-Europos and in other ancient synagogues. Xmm, XI+ pages.

They derive from one of the oldest synagogues in the world.
