Historians, literature scholars, and archaeologists show how integrating rabbinic texts and archaeology can increase the understanding of both types of evidence, and of the complex culture that they together reflect. Among the topics are Mishnah Baba Metsia 7:7 and the relationship of Mishnaic Hebrew to northern biblical Hebrew, Tosefta Ma'aser Sheni 1:4--the rabbis and Roman civic coinage in late antique Palestine, Jerusalem Talmud Sanhedrin 2,6 (20c)--the demise of King Solomon and Roman imperial propaganda in late antiquity, polychromy and the Jerusalem temple in late antiquity, and the Rehov inscriptions and rabbinic literature.
