Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of symbols that occur in this book titled The Ancient Synagogue from its Origins to 200 C.E. The descriptions of, and references to "the synagogue" and its activities comment on Judaism as a religious or ethnic tradition rather than inform the reader about institutional realities in any given century. "The synagogue" has, in such discourses, acquired a metaphorical life of its own, becoming a monolithic representative, used positively or negatively, of a religious tradition and its adherers, especially defining their relationship to other religions, cultures and peoples (Graeco-Roman and/or Christian).

Keywords: ancient synagogue; Judaism; religious tradition
