An ancient piece from the Rare Books Department has been translated and published by BYU professor Lincoln Blumell.
Read all about it in today’s BYU News:
“I’ve looked at hundreds of ancient Jewish epitaphs,” Blumell said, “and there is nothing quite like this. This is a beautiful remembrance and tribute to this woman.”
The findings have just been published in the Journal for the Study of Judaism in the Persian, Hellenistic and Roman Period.
Congratulations, Dr. Blumell!
