This book collects studies of the social, cultural, and religious history of the Jews in the Graeco-Roman world. The sixteen contributors--some specialists in Jewish history, others in classical studies--tackle the extent to which Jews in this period differed from other peoples in the Mediterranean region, and how much Jewish evidence can be used for the history of the wider classical world.
