Overview

This comprehensive treasury of sources on Judaism in the ancient period will be valued and used by students, scholars, and general readers who are interested in Jewish history, classical studies, or the origins of Christianity. This book includes the most comprehensive coverage available of sources in the area of anti-Semitism and (what is usually more neglected) philo-Semitism. It coordinates literary, epigraphical, papyrological, and numismatic evidence.
