Subtitle: Was the Synagogue a Place of Sabbath Worship Before 70?
Author(s): VAN DER HORST, Pieter W.
Volume: 60 Issue: 2 Date: 1999
Recently the English scholar Heather McKay defended the thesis that before the third century CE the synagogue had never been a place of sabbath worship. In this article the author reviews all the material presented by her, adds some new evidence, and comes to the conclusion that the evidence points to a situation in which already before 70 CE the synagogue served as a place of sabbath worship.
