HEROD THE BUILDER KING
$29.95
Herod the Great ruled Judea from 37-4 B.C.E. His archaeological legacy can still be seen today in various locations throughout the land of Israel. Masada, Herodian, Caesaria, Antipatrus, the Western Wall in Jerusalem, and many more sites are testimony to Herodís great skills as a master builder. Through the use of maps, photos, drawings, and wonderful video footage, we travel back in time to examine the geography, archaeology, politics, economy and religious tenor of the land once ruled by Herod the Great. 26 MIN.
FROM EXILE TO EXILE: ART & ARCHITECTURE
$29.95
This informative video, presented by Ori Soltes, spans a period of nearly eight centuries, from the exile of the Ten Northern tribes, through the destruction of the Second Temple by the Romans in 70 C.E. Great emphasis is placed on how the architecture and accoutrements of the Temple reflect not only their religious purpose, but also mirror the political and cultural environment of the ruling empire. An excellent tool to familiarize oneself with the history as well as the art and architecture of the period. 28 MIN.
AMATZIA: THE BAR KOCHBA CAVES
$24.95
During troubled times, the Jews of ancient Israel often dwelled in artificial limestone underground caves. The Bar Kochba revolt, which was launched against Rome in 132 C.E., was largely waged from such dwelling places. The Amatzia caves, located in the southern Lachish region of Israel, feature the only such system of underground caves to have been completely excavated to date. This video takes us down below, where we view an intricate complex of narrow passageways and tunnels, which connect to an olive press room, a mikvah (ritual bath), a huge water cistern, oil storage rooms and more. An enlightening look at one of Israel's lesser known sites. 12 MIN.
THE ENIGMA OF THE DEAD SEA SCROLLS
$29.95
Since their discovery in 1947, the Dead Sea Scrolls have been shrouded in mystery, intrigue and scandal. These ancient manuscripts of the secret Essene sect provide a missing link in the history of Christianity and modern Judaism-yet many of the scrolls still remain unpublished. Featuring some of the world's leading professors of archaeology, this film unravels many of the mysteries surrounding the material that shed new light on the origins of western civilization. 58 MIN.
MONA LISA OF THE GALILEE
$29.95
Between the cities of Acre and Tiberias in the Galilee lie the ruins of the ancient city Sepphoris (Tsipori). Five years of archaeological excavations yielded a remarkable mosaic floor, revealing the mysterious and beautiful face of a lady, approximately 1800 years old, dubbed 'Mona Lisa of the Galilee. Archaeological artifacts at the site point to a time when Jews, Pagans and Christians all lived together in peace. A fascinating study. "This video provides a bird's eye view of the excavation process...Recommended for archaeology departments and religious history buffs."-Video Librarian 42 MIN.
