- Religion in Early Fourth Century Roman Palestine: the Kfar ‘Othnay Mosaics(Presses de l’Ifpo, 2018)Two mosaics in western Palestine, both dating from the end of the 3rd cent. CE (or very early 4th), were discovered relatively recently in Israel. One is clearly Christian, and the other indeterminate, but their proximity in place and time merit a comparative analysis. This can illustrate the nature and diffusion of religious beliefs and symbols at a formative moment in Palestinian history.
