Yeshiva University Museum Conference: The Arch of Titus - from Jerusalem to Rome, and Bac

The Arch of Titus, built to commemorate Roman triumph in the Jewish War of 66-74 CE, has stood as a touchstone of Western civilization for nearly 2000 years. This conference explores the shifting meaning and significance of this monument – for the victorious Romans, for the defeated Jews, and for both Christians and Jews over the subsequent millennia.

The conference stretches from the Roman era to the present. Bringing together an international team of scholars, this gathering will explore the image and symbolism of the Arch from various vantage points – from emperors and popes to Jews and Christians who re-interpreted the meaning of the Arch in modern times.
