manuscript imageWhat did the high priest’s ritual dress look like? How did it function in Temple service? Why did the Romans want to keep it under lock and key? Join us as we explore the biblical text in concert with archaeological remains to understand how Israel’s high priestly garments functioned in ancient liturgy and in the formation of community identity.
