The Pool of Siloam: Biblical Tradition and Pilgrimage
After years of assumptions regarding the location of the Pool of Siloam of the Second Temple period, recent archaeological work in the City of David has revealed its precise location. The setting of New Testament traditions, the pool is also mentioned in Josephus’ writings. The discovery of the pool and road leading to it help illuminate a location associated with pilgrimage during the Roman period.
This lecture is the third within a series during Winter Quarter by
Professor Reich. Along with Eli Shukron, Reich has co-directed
the oldest part of Jerusalem, known as the city of David, since 1995.
He has published numerous articles on Second Temple Period archaeology
and Israel and is also known for his co-edited volume on The Architecture of Ancient Israel.
PLEASE NOTE LOCATION, ROYCE HALL 314.
