Sinagogue des Juifs.
c. 1750 - Copper engraving, mounted. Overall dimensions: 48.5 x 60.5 cm. Image size: 30 x 43.4 cm. Detailed engraved view of the interior of the synagogue from Calmet's renowned work. Antoine Augustin Calmet (1672 – 1757), a French Benedictine monk, was one of the most renowned Bible scholars of his day. He taught philosophy and theology at the abbey at Moyenmoutier and during the early years of his career worked on a massive 23-volume commentary of the Bible, which was first published in Paris between 1707 and 1716. By 1726, due to high demand, two further editions of this work had been published, followed by several editions of Latin translation. Calmet's biblical writings established him as a leading scholar, and he spent many years trying to popularize his work of biblical exegesis in the church. This engraving comes from a copy of a later edition of Calmet's commentary.
