Oooh, this is nice. PhDiva has posted a pile of good links related late-antique Jewish mosaics, mostly Italian, mostly in excavated synagogues and catacombs. As she points out — and as Rodney Stark demonstrates in The Rise of Christianity — these finds show the close ties of early Christians and their Jewish cousins.
