The fresco murals at Dura Europas have continued to generate significant interest. The well-preserved works not only speak to Jewish and Early Christian art but also Scripture and Scriptural interpretation, as well as halachic concerns regarding graven images in a synagogue.
A while Dr. Steven Notley and I did some work for the Center for Online Judaic Studies and several of their videos have been placed on blip.tv. In a short video Dr. Steven Fine describes the excavation of the Dura Europas synagogue [HERE].
