May’s news from the Archaeological Museum

Here you have the Bulletin with the May’s news from the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum Archaeological Museum. The bulletin is edited by the volunteers working at the Museum, in order to provide periodic updates on our progress and demonstrate the potential of the institution to those who are interested in finding out more. The various activities underway feed in to the intrinsic potential of the museum, demonstrating its value not simply as a place to store objects, but above all as a purpose-built research and information centre, helping the tourists and pilgrims who visit  it to understand the importance of these ‘stones’ and their connection with the story of Jesus.

Each month you will be able to keep up to date with news on our work, activities and visits at the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum Archaeological Museum, Jerusalem.

May’s news:

–       News: Israeli guides learn about the discoveries of the Franciscans.

–       Scientific Activities: Enrico and the study of the Jewish collectionDaniela is bringing the ancient mosaics of Zeugma back to life.
