LECTURE: What Did the Ten Commandments Look Like? Depictions in Text and in Art from the Bible to Rembrandt
Professor Jordan S. Penkower (Zalman Shamir Bible Department at Bar-Ilan University) will review the history of the Tablets of the Covenant and the Ten Commandments inscribed thereon, from the Bible through the Middle Ages, in both Jewish and Christian Art. Included is a study of two of Rembrandt’s paintings, in which the last five Commandments can be read clearly.
This event is co-presented by the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Yeshiva University and by Yeshiva University Museum
