About the course
with special guest lecturer Professor Jodi Magness

LSJS is proud to host a very special lecture from a world expert. Professor Magness has been involved in over twenty excavations in Israel and Greece. She is an extremely popular teacher whose unique teaching style and vivid anecdotes keep students on the edge of their seats.
This illustrated lecture will survey ancient synagogues of Israel from the first to sixth centuries. Beliefs of the ancient Jews will be explored by focusing on surprising synagogue decor, which includes human and animal figures and even pagan motifs.

Professor Jodi Magness is a highly acclaimed and very popular archaeologist. She is President of the Archaeological Institute of America and Professor of Early Judaism at the University of North Carolina. She studied Archaeology at the Hebrew University, gained her PhD at the University of Pennsylvania and has held posts in Tufts and Brown Universities. Professor Magness has had multiple guest appearances on the National Geographic Channel’s television series ‘The Story of God’ with Morgan Freeman.

Professor Magness is brought to the UK in association with the Anglo Israel Archaeological Society.
