Search the Epigraphy database

The Epigraphy section of the PEACE portal is an open-access, major digital hub of Jewish funerary inscriptions through the ages. The section, currently found in its pilot stage, will enable a well-organized and efficient access to its data by researchers and the interested public from all over the world.

At present (August 2020) the Epigraphy sections includes over 40,000 funerary inscriptions, ranging in date from the 5th century BCE to the 20th century CE, and covering broad geographic areas: parts of Israel and ancient Palestine, Italy, and Germany, as well as some cemeteries in the Czech Republic, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, and Spain.
