After the Roman emperor Vespasian and his son Titus plundered the central icons of the Jewish faith from the Temple of Jerusalem in AD 70, these great biblical treasures were exposed to 550 years of obscurity. Included on this priceless list of stolen items are the golden candelabrum, silver trumpets, and the bejeweled Table of the Divine Presence. Now, in "God's Gold," archaeologist Sean Kingsley draws from untapped historical texts and new sources to tell the incredible tale of the history of this awesome booty. From the Vatican to the wilderness of Judea, the story of the journey of these vital artifacts is astounding and will leave you breathless.. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
