Arch of Titus lecture

ICONOGRAPHY: Symbolism of Arch of Titus focus of Nov. 14 lecture (CARLO WOLFF, Cleveland Jewish News).
Professor Steven Fine, who has been researching this Arch for decades, will probe it and the various meanings it has spawned for some 2,000 years in “The Arch of Titus: From Jerusalem and Back,” at 6 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Maltz Performing Arts Center on the campus of Case Western Reserve University. Fine’s free talk is the annual Julius Lecture in Ancient Art, hosted by the CWRU Department of Art History and Art.

An exhibition of the same name as Fine’s lecture is on view through Jan. 14, 2018, at the Yeshiva University Museum in New York City.
More on that exhibition is here. And for much more on the Arch of Titus, follow the links there and here.
