About this collection

The existence of this collection of artifacts is due largely to Mr. Brainard Lemon who was on the board of trustees of the seminary and owner of the Louisville jewelry company Lemon and Sons.  In 1929 Lemon purchased over 288 artifacts, largely Palestinian pottery, specifically for the Seminary.  The collection has grown since Lemon's gift and now contains over 350 pieces. 

A full history of the collection was written in 1975 by then Professor of Old Testament Arnold B. Rhodes.

This digital version of the collection represents some of the most important items from the collection, and will continue to grow as more items are photographed and catelogued.
