#ArtifactoftheDay Written and illuminated around 1450, most likely in #London, the Rice Psalter is a luxurious psalter for liturgical rather than private use. A later inscription added to the book requests the reader’s prayers for “Symon Rice and Letyce his wyffe” along with their family. The Rice Psalter is a good example of the English art of manuscript illumination in the mid-fifteenth century. #mBible

#ArtifactoftheDay Common Sense by Thomas Paine, 1776.
In 1776, the year following the first military engagements of the Revolutionary War, Thomas Paine published "Common Sense." This pamphlet cited the Bible in its arguments to support the break with the British monarchy, and helped to fan the flames of liberty throughout America. Though unsympathetic to the Bible himself, Paine drew on its importance to the American public to make a powerful case for revolution and independence. #mBible

Reconstructed castellated rim sherd donated to the museum in 1979. Pots were decorated when the clay was still malliable. After the pots were decorated and left to dry, the clay was fired. It is important the pottery cools slowly after the firing process to minimize the danger of cracking.  #artifactoftheday #ontarioarchaeology #pottery #rimsherd #castellation

Two ceramic cult stands or altars were found at Taanach which are typically thought to have been used for burning incense, but more likely for pouring libations or even in association with sacred plants. This altar, dating to the 10th century BC in the Iron Age II, not long after the time in which King Solomon made the city of Taanach one of the centers for his 12 deputies, was nearly 1 meter high, had a hole in the top, and was hollow. It was elaborately decorated with the faces of bodies and animals, some of which appear to represent demons, and had a winged sun disk deity depicted near the top. Other discoveries of note from Taanach in this period include a basalt basin, a mold for making cultic figurines, stelae or standing stones, cultic vessels, loom weights, and pig astragali. The form of this altar or stand is completely contrary to the instructions in the Mosaic Law, and it may be an example of the new religious objects that Jeroboam instituted to prevent the northern tribes from going to Jerusalem for worship. 1 Kings 12:27-33. #archaeology #biblicalarchaeology #biblearchaeology #taanach #tanach #altar #ceramic #libation #religion #cult #syncretism #demons #sun #deity #pagan #sacred #law #moses #solomon #jeroboam #israel #kings #oldtestament #bible #ancient #history #artifact #artifactoftheday

A group of 102 ostraca, of which only 63 are legible, were found in the treasury of the Samaria palace. These ostraca were written with ink in the archaic Hebrew/Phoenician script and are economic in nature, specifically as receipts of tax payments to the government paid in wine and oil. Many of the receipts begin with the line “in the X year” (of the king), and include the names of the taxpayers, royal officials, and locations. The ostraca are significant for the study of ancient Hebrew and the economy of the Kingdom of Israel, but they also contain several personal names which appear in the Bible, a few villages that have been tentatively identified, and the city of Shechem. A sample of the personal names found in the ostraca, such as Nimshi, Abedyau, Akhinoam, Akhimelek, Khanan, Kheles, Gomer, Qedar, Sheba, Gaddiyau, Shemaryau, Abibaal, Meribaal, Elisha, and Natan, demonstrates that there was a mix of names with theophoric elements of El, Yah, and Baal, names found in the Hebrew Bible, and names more commonly found in inscriptions of the surrounding nations. The impression given from the names in the receipts suggests that the people in the Kingdom of Israel adopted religious beliefs and names of the surrounding nations. The years of the king mentioned are 9 and 10, although year 15 and 17 may also appear. The ostraca date to the 8th century BC, and probably the reigns of Jeroboam II and Menahem. Menahem ruled only 10 years and heavily taxed his subjects to pay the Assyrian tribute, which suggests that most or even all of the receipts came from his reign. 2 Kings 15:17-22. #archaeology #biblicalarchaeology #biblearchaeology #samaria #palace #ostraca #jeroboam #menahem #israel #hebrew #phoenician #yahweh #baal #taxes #government #economics #wine #oil #kings #oldtestament #bible #ancient #history #artifact #istanbul #byzantium #museum #artifactoftheday

#ArtifactoftheDay Small Bronze Coin, Bar Kokhba Revolt, Year One.
The Jews rebelled against Rome’s power in AD 132 under the leadership of Simon bar Kokhba who had several editions of coins struck using a paleo-Hebrew script from ancient Israel for the coins' inscriptions. This  pointed to the Jews' ancestral roots. Each coin was a declaration of the Jews’ independence and asserted their power. #mBible #coin #history

A 9th century BC Assyrian stone relief found at the inner face of the entrance to the temple of Ninurta in Kalhu (Nimrud) depicts the figure of a man inside a fish, which is also found numerous times in artwork of the Neo-Assyrian period. The iconography has been variously interpreted as Dagon, Oannes, a protective spirit, or a priest wearing a fish costume. Dagon had been worshipped for centuries throughout the ancient Near East, and was known in Philistia, Canaan, Phoenicia, and Mesopotamia, including Assyria. The idea of Dagon being part fish or wearing a fish goes back to ancient times, but the identification of the iconography is uncertain. According to the 3rd century BC priest, astronomer, and historian Berossus of Babylon, there was an ancient myth about a deity dwelling in the sea with the form of a man inside the form of a fish. This deity rose out of the waters during the day to impart knowledge to humans, and he was called Oannes by Berossus. After being spewed out of the fish onto land, Jonah proceeded to Nineveh. The cuneiform logogram for Nineveh is a fish inside a house, which probably originally goes back to the Hurrian goddess Šauška associated with fish, and likely the irony was not lost on Jonah. The people of Nineveh may have even received word that Jonah was expelled from a fish and associated him with a major deity. The iconography of the man inside the fish would have been known to those in Nineveh that Jonah spoke to, and because of the story of Jonah being inside the great fish, perhaps the people immediately connected Jonah with the divine and gave more heed to his message because of it.

The “Nineveh Chronicle” from about 550 BC, part of the Babylonian Chronicles, preserves a record of the destruction of Nineveh, which led to the fall of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. In 612 BC, after a 3 month siege on what was then the largest city in the world, the Assyrian capital of Nineveh was conquered and destroyed by a coalition led by the Babylonians under King Nabopolassar, with help from the Medes. Archaeological evidence of this destruction includes razed buildings and the discovery of many skeletons in the ruins of the conquered city. The Assyrian king Sinsharishkun died, but a prince escaped and continued a minor resistance until the battle of Carchemish in 605 BC, when the Neo-Assyrian Empire was finally eliminated and the Babylonians reigned supreme. The Kingdom of Judah had been repeatedly attacked by the Assyrians over the last century, suffering through both defeats and tribute payments, but surviving. The prophets Nahum, Zephaniah, and Jeremiah mentioned the fall of Nineveh and the Assyrians, and no doubt many of the people saw Divine justice carried out when Assyrian was defeated. However, only a few years after Nineveh was destroyed, the Babylonians forced Judah into becoming a vassal state, eventually leading to a rebellion and the destruction of Jerusalem. Nahum 2:8-3:19. #archaeology #biblicalarchaeology #biblearchaeology #nineveh #city #siege #assyria #assyrian #babylonian #cuneiform #nabopolassar #chronicle #judah #nahum #zephaniah #jeremiah #oldtestament #bible #ancient #history #artifact #artifactoftheday

Adad-Nirari III was an Assyrian king who ruled about 810-783 BC during a time of recovery for Assyria, which had just endured a civil war, although they were the dominant empire in the Near East. Based at Nineveh, which was a residence of many 9th-7th century BC Assyrian kings, Adad-Nirari III also finished a palace there and repaired the temple to Nabu. Like most Assyrian kings, Adad-Nirari III led military campaigns, including against Damascus, and he maintained control over Babylon, but his government also had a group of royal officials that wielded more power than was usual in Assyria and there may have been rival “kings” who controlled other areas of the empire. The Tell al-Rimah stele was discovered in Nineveh province at a site thought to be ancient Qatara or Karana. The stele, which was commissioned in about 797 BC, depicts Adad-Nirari III and contains a 21 line cuneiform inscription honoring the god Adad, noting titles of the king, and recording military campaigns and tributes in the west. The text specifically mentions subjugating Damascus, and also a tribute paid by Jehoash the Samarian, king of Israel. The conquest of Damascus by a “savior” in the book of Kings probably refers to a campaign of Adad-Nirari III. According to Assyrian documents, Adad-Nirari III seems to have ceased military campaigns after about 800 BC, and he is probably the “king of Nineveh” referenced in the book of Jonah who told his people to turn from evil and violence.

Based at Nineveh, which was a residence of many 9th-7th century BC Assyrian kings, Adad-Nirari III also finished a palace there and repaired the temple to Nabu. Like most Assyrian kings, Adad-Nirari III led military campaigns, including against Damascus, and he maintained control over Babylon, but his government also had a group of royal officials that wielded more power than was usual in Assyria and there may have been rival “kings” who controlled other areas of the empire. The Tell al-Rimah stele was discovered in Nineveh province at a site thought to be ancient Qatara or Karana. The stele, which was commissioned in about 797 BC, depicts Adad-Nirari III and contains a 21 line cuneiform inscription honoring the god Adad, noting titles of the king, and recording military campaigns and tributes in the west. The text specifically mentions subjugating Damascus, and also a tribute paid by Jehoash the Samarian, king of Israel. The conquest of Damascus by a “savior” in the book of Kings probably refers to a campaign of Adad-Nirari III. According to Assyrian documents, Adad-Nirari III seems to have ceased military campaigns after about 800 BC, and he is probably the “king of Nineveh” referenced in the book of Jonah who told his people to turn from evil and violence.

#ArtifactoftheDay from Stephanus’s Greek-Latin New Testament. This edition from around 1550 is known as the Editio Regia or "Regal Edition." #mBible #illustration #art
For over 2,500 years, the Samaritans have venerated only the Torah as scripture, and continue to use only their version of the Torah. This scroll is attributed to the scribe Shalmah ben Abraham, and may have been written around 1166. This makes the museum’s scroll one of the four earliest surviving examples of this biblical textual tradition.  #mBible #ArtifactoftheDay

#ArtifactoftheDay Ethiopic Gospels Book with Commentary.
------
This Ethiopian Gospel book features large illustrations of the four evangelists. The color palette of Ethiopic Bibles and liturgical books are usually a mix of vibrant colors, while a delight in pattern can be seen throughout on various clothes and objects. The Gospels in this book are presented in Ge’ez, now only a liturgical language. In addition, this book contains commentaries on the Gospels in Amharic, the main spoken language in Ethiopia today. #mBible #Ethiopia #Gospel

#ArtifactoftheDay Wycliffite New Testament.
------
The Wycliffite Bible, produced in the 1380s, was the first complete Bible in English. Though associated with John Wycliffe, it seems that the majority of the translation was completed by associates of his. In 1408, in response to the spread of the English Bible and Wycliffe’s writings, the Constitution of Oxford ruled that any translation of the Bible into English or any other language done on one's own authority was punishable by excommunication.
------
This particular New Testament is from a later version of the Wycliffite Bible that is in a more readable style than the strictly literal first version. In the front is a table of the biblical texts used in the Latin mass so that the reader could better understand the biblical texts in Latin during church services. The ban on English translations lasted 120 years, only being lifted under Henry VIII in 1539. Despite this, the Wycliffite translation was hugely popular, as witnessed by around 250 surviving manuscripts. Many prominent individuals, among them kings, owned copies. The Wycliffite Bible is a landmark artifact for the history of the Bible in English. #mBible #newtestament

#ArtifactoftheDay Gutenberg Bible Leaf, Biblia Latina, 4 Esdras 8:12–9:17
------
The Bible was the first major book printed on Gutenberg’s movable-type printing press. The year of the first printing cannot be determined with certainty, but sometime in the middle of the 1450s Gutenberg produced a copy of the Latin Vulgate, Biblia Latina.
------
The Gutenberg Bible is a two-column text printed with red and blue ornamentation added by hand after it came off the press. This means that each Gutenberg Bible has its own unique characteristics. Gutenberg produced approximately 180 copies of his Bible, but only about twenty are known to survive today. Gutenberg’s Bible closely resembles a manuscript using typeset that mimics period handwriting, with illustrations painted by an artist’s hand. As printing became more common, the style began to change into a look that was uniquely its own, allowing printing to become artistic as well as utilitarian. The Gutenberg press marked the beginning of an information revolution that allowed for rapid spread of ideas, information, and the Bible. #mBible #print

#ArtifactoftheDay Early Jewish Prayer Book
------
This early Jewish prayer book contains daily prayers, poetry, an apocalyptic text, and a Passover haggadah section that mysteriously was written upside down in the codex. Structured Jewish prayers first began to be standardized in Babylonia around AD 860, while Hebrew poetry was more in vogue in the Levant during this period.
------
This codex contains both, which captures the exchange of ideas between the two Jewish communities. Only in the tenth century would intellectual leaders in the Jewish academies in Babylonia (modern Iraq) begin to solidify standards for Jewish prayers. This early Jewish prayer book provides a rare glimpse into this historical process, and affords a view of the intellectual developments of medieval Judaism. #mBible #Jewish #prayer

#ArtifactoftheDay Gilgamesh Tablet, "Dream Episode."
------
The Gilgamesh Epic is a term used for an extended narrative from the first millennium, but which is composed from older texts that exist in the Sumerian, Akkadian, Hittite, and Hurrian languages. It bears some connections with biblical texts, and tells, among other things, the story of a great flood. The fragment in the museum was originally part of a larger six-column tablet. It contains a Middle Babylonian version of the Gilgamesh Epic dating from about 1600 BC. This text features a number of peculiarities. For example, the name Gilgamesh is replaced with that of the moon-god Sin, and the name Enkidu, Gilgamesh’s companion, with Ea, the god of wisdom. The tablet preserves a sequence where Gilgamesh has two dreams that his mother interprets about the coming of Enkidu as his equal and future true companion. Another episode relates the transformation of wild Enkidu into a civilized being.

#ArtifactoftheDay Gospels in Arabic and Latin from ca. 1591
------
Art has made the content of the Bible relatable, accessible, debatable, and inspirational. The early stages of printed images began with woodblock printing, which involved carving a picture into a block of wood and applying ink to the raised areas leaving the cut depressions ink-free. The process is very similar to rubber stamping today. The woodcut seen here is in the “Evangelium Sanctum Domini” which was the first printed edition of the Gospels in Arabic and Latin. #wood #mBible #art

What's new at the museum? Nothing, everything's old! But new to our collection is this interesting patchwork quilt made of men's suits.

(For the picture, the quilt was folded in quarters) #artifactoftheday #foundinourcollection #quilt #quilting

#ArtifactoftheDay The Codex Climaci Rescriptus (CCR) is a palimpsest. A palimpsest is new document written over an erased text underneath. The brown ink still visible on this leaf shows how erasure was not always complete, and the result is a page with one layer of text superimposed on another. The CCR reused parchment from not just one older manuscript but at least ten different codices in two different languages. #artifact #mBible
