Dura Europos Synagogue

November 3rd, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink

Dura Europos – a town in modern day Syria, abandoned in the 3rd century, covered in sand and rediscovered in 1885. A synagogue was found there, covered in wall paintings, which is pretty rare in the world of synagogues. ISIS is in control of the area at the moment, and they apparently destroyed and looted a vast amount of the town. I doubt the synagogue would have remained untouched – however, it appears it may have in a way, as most of it was removed and taken to the National Museum of Damascus decades ago.



Michael Marra – Arrest This Moment (James Robertson)

October 23rd, 2017 § 0 comments § permalink

You can now buy this biography of Michael Marra, which launched last Friday. Written by James Robertson (Professor of Truth, And the Land Lay Still, Testament of Gideon Mack etc) its an unconventional biography, featuring reconstructed conversations with Michael Marra, along with plenty of images and examples of Michael’s own drawings and paintings. I wrote the preface (originally written for this blog) and the cover is an image by Calum Colvin. You should go and buy it – also, almost all of Michael’s recordings are now available digitally, including some ‘new’ releases.
