Patricia Krupinski'16 Art History major was awarded a PC Summer Undergraduate Research Grant for her project:
Synagoga Under Erasure: An Examination of the Relationship of Judaism and Christianity in Santa Sabina
This research examines the question erasure, or the simultaneous sanctioning and nullification of Judaism in Santa Sabina’s inscription mosaic and doors, through a textual and visual analysis, allowing for a better understanding of the early Church’s desire both to connect itself and separate itself from its Jewish roots.
Patricia recently returned from Rome where she conducted her research this summer.
