What’s in a Name? Jewish Onomastic Practices in Graeco-Roman Antiquity

July 28 2022, 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

With Ana Igornov
Thursdays, 8:00-9:00 pm, July 14, 21 & 28, 2022 (3 sessions)
Jewish inscriptions inform us about a number of aspects of Jewish life in antiquity: mobility, professions and occupations that Jews were engaged in, cultural interactions and many others. One of the areas of research that benefits enormously from Jewish epigraphy is that of Onomastics or the study of names. What kind of names were popular among Jews of the Diaspora? Did they use nicknames? What can their names tell us? Let us review this topic about which ancient Jewish inscriptions speak to us. Class will meet on Zoom. Quarter Fee: Summer
