THE ARCH OF TITUS IN ROME: Symbol of Opposition between Rome and the People of God

by Paulo Jorge Coelho

“The Arch of Titus, fully executed in marble, is a triumphal arch, currently the most celebrated in Rome. It was erected in commemoration of the conquest of Jerusalem and destruction of the Temple by the Emperor Titus Flavius, son of Vespasian. Titus led the Roman legions which occupied the capital of Judea in 67 AD and destroyed Jerusalem in 70 AD. We can see carved on the Arch of Titus, the following symbols of Judaism: the table of unleavened bread, the trumpets of silver and the menorah, with its 7 arms. It contains the following inscription in Latin:

SENATVS POPVLVSQVE•ROMANVS DIVO•TITO•DIVI•VESPASIANI•F(ILIO)VESPASIANO• AVGVSTO
