Inscription and Imagination: The 2,000 Year-old Story of a Woman Who Survived the Destruction of Jerusalem

Join us as we travel back in time to an event that changed Jewish and world history. Our guides are Paula Fredriksen, a noted scholar of early Christianity; Jonathan Price, an expert on the Jewish revolt against Rome; and Lori Banov Kaufmann, author of the historical fiction novel Rebel Daughter, which brings this woman and the tumultuous 1st century to life.

12:30pm-1:30pm EDT, 19:30-20:30 Israel Time

Prof. Jonathan Price, Speaker

Paula Fredriksen, a former NLI USA Board member, is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and is currently Distinguished Visiting Professor of Religion at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Her most recent book, When Christians Were Jews (Yale, 2018) surveys the history of the original community in Jerusalem from 30 to 70 CE— an historical backdrop to Lori Kaufman’s rich novel.

Lori Banov Kaufman is the debut author of Rebel Daughter (Random House, 2021). Before becoming a full-time writer, she was a strategy consultant for high-tech companies. She has an AB from Princeton University and an MBA from the Harvard Business School.

Jonathan Price is the Fred and Helen Lessing Professor of Ancient History at Tel Aviv University where he has served as chair of the History and the Classics departments. He is the author of many books and articles on Greek and Roman history and historiography, Jewish history of the Hellenistic and Roman periods, and epigraphy (the study of inscriptions). Jonathan is an editor of several books, including the CIIP: A Multilingual Corpus of the Inscriptions from Alexander to Muhammad.
