Magdala (Migdal Nunia/Tariceae) -- Galilee Region

Magdala (Migdal Nunia/Tariceae) -- Galilee Region


This collection began with photos taken during a Duke Divinity School tour of Israel during May of 2016.

Magdala is located at the foot of Mount Arbel on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. A town that had an active fishing industry, Magdala is often identified as the hometown of Mary Magdalene. The archaeological remains include a synagogue and the Magdala Stone--a stone depicting implements and symbols associated with the Second Temple. The ancient town was discovered in 2009 and a modern Catholic Church (Duc In Autum) also is on the site.

While every effort has been taken to correctly identify photos and catalog them using accurate keywords and metadata, complete accuracy is difficult to achieve. Corrections are most welcome. They may be sent, along with the static URL of the photograph for which the modification should be made, to the Duke Divinity School Library at divlib@duke.edu.
