By Steven Fine

This volume explores the cultural and intellectual history of the Western world's oldest continuously used religious symbol. In his meticulously researched yet deeply personal history, Steven Fine explains how the seven- branched menorah illuminates the great changes and continuities in Jewish culture, from biblical times to modern Israel.

Surveying artifacts and literary sources spanning three thousand yearsfrom the Torah and the ruins of Rome to yesterday's newsFine presents the menorah as a source of fascination and illumination for Jews, Samaritans, Christians, and even Freemasons. A symbol of the divine, continuity, emancipation, national liberation, and redemption, the menorah features prominently on Israel's state seal and continues to inspire and challenge in surprising ways.
