For almost a thousand years, since the Land of Israel was occupied by Alexander of Macedon in 332 BCE until the Muslim invasion (638 CE), there was a significant Greek-speaking population that left its mark on the landscape: ruins of cities, public buildings such as theaters, temples, and more. In contrast, the people who lived in cities with Greek or mixed populations have remained largely unknown. This volume is a pioneering effort to collect, describe, and evaluate the intellectual legacy of those Greeks. Some two hundred Greek intellectuals, who left us thousands of columns of poetry and thousands of pages of prose, are discussed in the volume. There is also an extensive bibliography.
