Professor Noga-Banai is interested in Pilgrimage Art, in the connections between Jewish and Christian Art and between Jerusalem and Rome. She studies both portable and monumental art around the Mediterranean basin. She has published studies on art and architecture in the Holy Land, in Italy and in Western Europe, including Merovingian and Carolingian art. Recently she has also been dealing with commemoration of Jews in the 20th century by Christian visual practice. Her books, The Trophies of the Martyrs: An Art Historical Study of Early Christian Silver Reliquaries, and Scared Stimulus: Jerusalem in the Visual Christianization of Rome, were published in 2008 and 2018 respectively by Oxford University Press.
