“Reconsidering the Synagogue/Basilica of Elche, Spain” Lecture by Robyn Walsh
“Reconsidering the Synagogue/Basilica of Elche, Spain” Lecture by Robyn Walsh, Univ. of Miami This presentation will discuss the so-called basilica of Elche, Spain and the possibility that the site was, at an earlier stage, a Jewish synagogue. Heralded as the oldest Christian basilica in Spain, the history of excavation and funding for this site is fraught, including sponsorship from the German Deutsches Archaologisches Institut (DAI) during the mid-20th century.
