Chapter Summary

This book shows that a contextual examination of Jewish North African archaeological evidence calls into question the logic of each step of the approaches, which extends from the identification of Jewish materials to the method and results of their analysis. The book concludes that the breadth of Roman North African Jewish evidence and culture is far more complex than previous scholars have permitted their analyses to describe. Certain features of North African Jewish practices are idiosyncratically North African Jewish and resemble neither conventional North African nor "conventional" Mediterranean Jewish practice. The book contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of the cultural dynamics within North Africa generally. Perhaps, by creating a different vision of Jewish cultures in North Africa, this study invites a reassessment of the artifacts that have been previously classified as Jewish, pagan, or Christian.

Keywords:Jewish culture; Mediterranean; North African archaeology; North African Christian; Roman North Africa
