Arch of titus

The Arch provides one of the few contemporary depictions of Temple period artifacts. [6][7] The seven-branched menorah and trumpets are clearly depicted. It became a symbol of the Jewish diaspora. In a later era, Pope Paul IV made it the place of a yearly oath of submission. Jews refuse to walk under it. [citation needed] The menorah depicted on the Arch served as the model for the menorah used on the emblem of the state of Israel.

[citation needed]However, when the existence of modern State of Israel was formally declared, the entire Roman Jewish community spontaneously gathered by the arch and in joyful celebration, walked backwards under the arch to symbolize beginning of the long-awaited redemption from the Roman Exile. [8] The inscription in Roman square capitals reads: SENATVS POPVLVSQVE·ROMANVS DIVO·TITO·DIVI·VESPASIANI·F(ILIO) VESPASIANO·AVGVSTO (Senatus Populusque Romanus divo Tito divi Vespasiani filio Vespasiano Augusto) which means “The Roman Senate and People (dedicate this) to the divine Titus Vespasianus Augustus, son of the divine Vespasian.


Arch of Titus

The Arch of Titus was erected by the Senate and people of Rome in memory of the Emperor Titus. The monument, not mentioned by ancient winters, can be identified by the dedicatory inscription still legible on the side toward the Colosseum.

The Arch of Titus has a single passage, and is 5.40 meters high, 13.50 meters large and 4.75 meters deep, confronted with pentelic marble and on the front and back it has 4 engaged columns with composite capitals. The ornamental sculpture on the outside consists of 2 figures of Triumphes on worlds and with banners above the archivolt, the goddess Roma and the Genius of the Roman People on the keystones and a frieze in really high relief in the architrave with the victory of Vespasian and Titus over the Jews (in 71 AD).

Titus Arch Roman Loot Menorah Temple Jerusalem Forum Rome Italy. Erected in 81 AD in honor of Emperor Vespasian and son Titus conquering Jerusalem and destroying the Jewish temple in 70 AD.

Inside the arch, a panel at the center of the coffered vault includes a relief with the apotheosis of Titus, reached paradise by an eagle, while 2 big panels with scenes from the Judaic victory are on either side. The panel on the north portrays a procession where bearers of the lietor’s fasces precede the emperor who is being crowned by a figure of Triumph. He is on a quadriga and the horses are led by the goddess Roma on foot while personifications of the Roman People and the Senate follow, in a summa of the traditional themes of royal propaganda.


Description

The arch is large with both fluted and unfluted columns, the latter being a result of 19th century restoration. [7] The spandrels on the upper left and right of the arch contain personifications of victory as winged women. Between the spandrels is the keystone, on which there stands a female on the East side and a male on the West side. [7]

The soffit of the axial archway is deeply coffered with a relief of the apotheosis of Titus at the center. The sculptural program also includes two panel reliefs lining the passageway within the arch. Both commemorate the joint triumph celebrated by Titus and his father Vespasian in the summer of 71.

The south panel depicts the spoils taken from the Temple in Jerusalem. The golden candelabrum or Menorah is the main focus and is carved in deep relief. Other sacred objects being carried in the triumphal procession are the Gold Trumpets, the fire pans for removing the ashes from the altar, and the Table of Shew bread. [7] These spoils were likely originally colored gold, with the background in blue. [7] In 2012 the Arch of Titus Digital Restoration Project discovered remains of yellow ochre paint on the menorah relief. [8]

The north panel depicts Titus as triumphator attended by various genii and lictors, who carry fasces. A helmeted Amazonian, Valour, leads the quadriga or four horsed chariot, which carries Titus. Winged Victory crowns him with a laurel wreath. [7] The juxtaposition is significant in that it is one of the first examples of divinities and humans being present in one scene together. This contrasts with the panels of the Ara Pacis, where humans and divinities are separated. [7]

The sculpture of the outer faces of the two great piers was lost when the Arch of Titus was incorporated in medieval defensive walls. The attic of the arch was originally crowned by more statuary, perhaps of a gilded chariot. [7] The main inscription used to be ornamented by letters made of perhaps silver, gold or some other metal.

O Arco de Tito é um arco triunfal, erigido em comemoração à conquista de Jerusalém pelo imperador Tito Flávio, filho de Vespasiano. Tito comandou as legiões romanas que ocuparam a capital da Judeia em 1 de agosto de 67 d.C.

Com esta ocupação, teve início a destruição do Templo de Jerusalém, que seria concluída no ano 70 d.C., acontecimento que foi considerado a realização de uma das profecias de Jesus Cristo.

Vê-se esculpido no arco: a mesa do pão ázimo, as trombetas de prata e a Menorá, o candelabro de 7 braços, símbolos do judaísmo. Inteiramente em mármore, o Arco de Tito é o mais célebre de Roma. Situa-se no Fórum Romano e foi construído em 81 d.C., medindo 15,4 m de altura, 13,5m de largura e 4,75 de profundidade.

Nele consta a seguinte inscrição:

Isto é: "O Senado e o povo romano [dedicam] ao divino Tito Vespasiano Augusto, filho do divino Vespasiano".

Os judeus, de Roma ou de qualquer lugar, nunca passaram embaixo do Arco de Tito, até 1948, quando o Estado de Israel foi fundado. Nesta ocasião os judeus de Roma fizeram uma grande parada e passaram embaixo do arco, comemorando a reconquista de sua terra e, claro, a sua sobrevivência ao Império Romano.

The Arch of Titus is a 1st-century honorific arch[1] located on the Via Sacra, Rome, just to the south-east of the Roman Forum. It was constructed in c.82 AD by the Roman Emperor Domitian shortly after the death of his older brother Titus to commemorate Titus' victories, including in the Siege of Jerusalem in 70 AD.

The Arch of Titus has provided the general model for many of the triumphal arches erected since the 16th century—perhaps most famously it is the inspiration for the 1806 Arc de Triomphe in Paris, France.

Colour relief of the South panel: "The Spoils of War", showing the triumphal procession

The arch is situated on a prominent rise, the Velian Hill, which is a low saddle between the Palatine and Esquiline Hills, just south-east of the Roman Forum. The arch itself is 13.50 metres wide, 15.40 high, and 4.75 deep while the inner archway is 8.30 metres high and 5.36 wide. It is constructed using pentelic marble, arranged in five bays to an ABA rhythm the side bays are perpendicular to the central axial arch with a single barrel vault. The corners are articulated with a massive order of engaged columns that stand on a high ashlar basement. The capitals are Corinthian, but with prominent volutes of the Ionic order projecting laterally above the acanthus foliage—the earliest example of the composite order, combining both designs. Above the main cornice rises a high, weighty 4.40m high attic on which is a central tablet bearing the dedicatory inscription. The entablatures break forward over the columns and the wide central arch, and the profile of the column shafts transforms to square. The minor frieze on the entablature depicts a line of both military and civil officials, along with sacrificial animals. Flanking the central arch, the side bays now each contain a shallow niche-like blind aedicular window, a discreet early 19th century restoration. There are both fluted and unfluted columns, the latter being a result of 19th century restoration. The spandrels on the upper left and right of the arch contain personifications of victory as winged women. Between the spandrels is the keystone, on which there stands a female on the East side and a male on the West side.

The soffit of the axial archway is deeply coffered with a relief of the apotheosis of Titus at the center. The sculptural program also includes two panel reliefs lining the passageway within the arch. Both commemorate the joint triumph celebrated by Titus and his father Vespasian in the summer of 71.

The south panel depicts the spoils taken from the Temple in Jerusalem. The Golden Candlestick or Menorah (see [Exodus 25:31-40]) is the main focus and is carved in deep relief. Other sacred objects being carried in the triumphal procession are the Silver Trumpets and the Table of Shewbread (see [Exodus 25:23-30]). These spoils were originally gilded with gold, with the background in blue.

The north panel depicts Titus as triumphator attended by various genii and lictors, who carry fasces. A helmeted Amazonian, Valour, is leading the quadriga or four horsed chariot, in which there is Titus. He is being crowned with a laurel wreath by the winged Victory. This is significant because divinities and humans are presented in one scene, together, contrasting the panels of the Ara Pacis where they are separated.

The sculpture of the outer faces of the two great piers was lost when the Arch of Titus was incorporated in medieval defensive walls. The attic of the arch was originally crowned by more statuary, perhaps of a gilded chariot. The main inscription used to be ornamented by letters made of silver or perhaps gold or some other metal.


Inner Archway, Arch of Titus - History

It was constructed out of marble and travertine, a type of limestone, which is similar to marble but cheaper. It also contained a large amount of attached columns, designed in a Corinthian manor. For example, on either side of the arch (also called the fornix), were large fluted columns.

The inside of the arch contains 2 panels with reliefs. One of these depicts the raid of the second Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans, where there was a grand procession with people carrying Jewish treasures - particularly the seven-branched candelabrum, the silver trumpets, and the table of the showbread. The roman attendants, wearing short tunics, are also depicted carrying a gold table, a lamp stand, and even the law of the Jews. Two plaques that they are seen carrying also have the names of the cities that they conquered.

The second relief shows Titus riding in a chariot, accompanied by the goddesses Victoria and Roma. Titus carries Jupiter’s scepter and a palm branch, while being crowned with a laurel wreath. Twelve lictors holding fasces appear to announce his presence. In both panels, the figures were designed to walk in the direction of the Temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline hill.

The colorful reliefs were designed to be cut deeply, with the figures in the foreground of the relief casting shadows on people depicted behind them. This gives the reliefs the feelings of depth and movement, which helped make them so astonishing during the Flavian period at that time.

Above the main cornice in the frieze was a central tablet containing an inscription which reads :

Which translates to “The Roman Senate and People to Deified Titus, Vespasian Augustus, son of Deified Vespasian”. This main inscription used to be ornamented by letters made from bronze.

The underside of the arch, also known as the soffit, shows the apotheosis of Titus (when he transforms into a God).

Unfortunately, the statue of the outer faces of the two great piers was destroyed during medieval times. Archeologists believe that more sculptures may have been used however, such as a chariot drawn by elephants, to complete the attic of the arch when it was originally built.


The Arch of Titus commemorates the victory of Vespasian and Titus in Judea in 70 CE, and the conquest of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Jewish temple

The Arch of Titus (Arcus Titi) is a triumphal arch that commemorates the victory of the emperors Vespasian and Titus in Judea in 70 CE, which lead to the conquest of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Jewish temple there, and the triumphal procession the two held in Rome in 71 CE. It is situated at the E. entrance to the Forum Romanum, on the Via Sacra, south of the Temple of Amor and Roma, close to the Colosseum.

The arch was definitely erected sometimes after after the death of Titus in 81 CE, since Titus is referred to as Divus in the inscription. The deification of an emperor only happened posthumously after decision by the senate. It was most probably erected by emperor Domitian who succeeded his brother Titus in 81 CE, but it has also been suggested that it was built later, by Trajan, because of stylistic similarities with the Arch of Trajan at Benevento.

The Arch of Titus is a single arch, measuring 15.4m in height, 13.5m in width and 4.75m in depth, originally constructed entirely in Pantelic marble, with four semi-columns on each side. The external decorations include figures of Victoria with trophies on the spandrels and images of Roma and the Genius of Rome on the two keystones.

The inscription on the Arch of Titus

The inscription on the E. side is the original dedication of the arch by the senate. It reads:

Senatus
Populusque Romanus
divo Tito divo Vespasiani f(ilio)
Vespasiano Augusto

The senate
and people of Rome
to the divine Titus, son of the divine Vespasian,
Vespasianus Augustus

The inside the archway the monument is decorated with reliefs in marble. The S. side shows the beginning of the triumphal entry into Rome of the victorious emperor and his troops. The soldiers, walking left to right, are carrying the spoils of war, which include the seven armed candelabrum and the silver trumpets from the temple of Jerusalem. The signs carried by some soldiers displayed the names of the conquered cities and people. To the right the procession is entering the city through the Porta Triumphalis.

The N. side of the arch is decorated with a relief of the emperor in the triumphal procession. The emperor is riding a quadriga, which is lead by the goddess Roma, and he is crowned by Victoria flying above him. The lictors are walking in front of the chariot with their long ceremonial axes. After the emperor follow as a young man, who represents the Roman people, and an older man in toga, representing the senate. In the middle, under the vault a small relief shows the apotheosis of Titus, flying to the heavens on the back of an eagle.

In the Middle Ages the arch was incorporated into the fortifications of the Frangipane family. This has helped conserve the monument, and destroy it. It was especially badly damaged in fighting in the area in the 12th and 13th centuries. The fortifications were demolished in 1821-2, and the arch was restored by Valadier. As a part of this restoration the side facing the Forum Romanum was almost entirely rebuilt in travertine, leaving that side much whiter, and the external sides were also completely reconstructed. The original parts are the central passageway and the inscription and the two central semi-columns of the E. side towards the Colosseum.

The excavations of the roads around the Arch of Titus has lowered the street level too much, to the Augustan level from before the Neronian fire of 64 CE. A part of the foundation of the arch is therefore exposed. It would not have been visible when the arch was first constructed.

The arch is visible as a part of the archaeological zone of the Forum Romanum, but it is usually not possible to pass under it.

colored and the arch was topped by a bronze quadriga.

– The Arch of Titus was built in 81 AD. In the 11th century the Frangipani family had a fortress built surrounding the Arch. In 1821 it was restored by Giuseppe Valadier. And then in between 1822 and 1823 they outer parts were rebuilt using travertine (opposed to the initial marble) this way we are able to differentiate the original pieces and the restored parts.

-This was built at the “Forum Romanum” “at the highest point of the “Via Sacra” “
-It was built in commemoration of the victory of the Jewish Zealots. As well as in honor of Emperor Titus, who died of a fever in year 81.
-The arch was built by Titusʼ brother Domitian.

-Although it is unclear who actually made or at least participated in making the Arch what is clear is that it was commissioned by Emperor Domitian. And they incorporated a Flavian style. This style can be identified through the simplicity of the general shape and even some of the pictures on the arch.

-The Arch of Titus is created from a “Pentelic marble” and it sits on top of a travertine (a type of limestone) base. They used a white marble which often signified wealth and had an overall positive connotation. Structurally, the Arch gets its strength from its “voussoirʼs” which means “Wedge shaped stone or brick”, making the curved format possible. (very common when it comes to building vaults and arches). Different parts of the arch have different names. Approaching from the front the part that sticks out the most is called the archʼs “barrel vault”(depth of 4.75 m), the archway was 8.3m high and 5.36m wide. Also the Arch of Titus was supposedly the first of its kind to combine Ionic and Corinthian styles to create “Composite order”.

-The Arch of Titus was not something to be used practically, rather to be looked upon symbolically. The Arch signified the victory of the Jewish people in the Jewish war. The fact that the Arch is still standing is also significant, this proves that the defeat was not a temporary victory, rather a long term life changing event.

– A cool fact about the arch is the oldest surviving Roman arch. And on the inside of the two panels are pictures or “reliefs” one side depicting the Triumphal procession with the spoils taken from the second temple in Jerusalem. The other showing Titus being carried in a chariot accompanied by the Goddesses Victoria and Roma.
