Overview

English summary: Narrative tradition omits many aspects of the history of a province. Over the course of recent decades, a range of epigraphic, papyrological, numismatic and archaeological source material has been reassessed with regard to the province of Judea which provides a much more up to date and realistic impression of the province of Judea / Syria Palestine than that which had developed previously, in particular through the influence of the statements in the Mishnah and the Talmud. This collection of essays by Werner Eck reveals new perspectives on Roman rule in Judea gained from inscriptions, especially in Latin and Greek, and shows the disastrous consequences that the Bar Kochba revolt had for the country. At the same time it puts forward a skeptical view of Josephus, whose depiction of the Roman prefect before the first uprising is exposed as a deliberate defamation. German description: Viele Aspekte der Geschichte einer Provinz fehlen in der literarischen Uberlieferung. Fur die Provinz Judaa sind in den letzten Jahrzehnten zahlreiche epigraphische, papyrologische, numismatische und archaologische Quellen neu erschlossen worden, die ein wesentlich neueres und realistischeres Bild der Provinz Judaa / Syria Palastina entstehen lassen, als es bisher, vor allem unter dem Einfluss der Aussagen von Mischna und Talmud, entwickelt wurde. Die hier versammelten Aufsatze von Werner Eck zeigen, welche neue Sichtweise Inschriften, speziell lateinische und griechische, auf die romische Herrschaft in Judaa erlauben und welche katastrophalen Folgen der Bar Kochba Aufstand fur das Land hatte. Daneben wird eine skeptische Sicht auf Josephus entwickelt, dessen Schilderung der romischen Prafekten vor dem ersten Aufstand als eine bewusste Diffamierung entlarvt wird.
