Chapter Summary

The researchers have recently questioned the role of Palestinian rabbis during the late antiquity, suggesting that their influence was less important than previously thought, while that of the priestly families in Jewish society after the fall of Temple is now re-evaluated. This chapter examines the catacombs of Beth Shearim, in Lower Galilee, and the synagogue of Dura Europos in order to seek the traces by Jewish and non-rabbinic practices, including those of the presence and influence of priests during the third century. Philosophy is a rationalization of the irrational Images. This is nowhere more apparent than in the history of German idealism of Schelling, Hegel and Schleiermacher.

Keywords: Palestinian rabbis; Late Antiquity; priestly families; Jewish society; catacombs of Beth Shearim; Lower Galilee; Dura Europos
