Overview

K'tia is the Talmud's name for a circumcised Roman senator, nephew to the emperor Domitian and in line for the Roman throne, who converted to Judaism, fatally incurring the wrath of Domitian. Once again, Roberta Kalechofsky demonstrates that she is a master of historical fiction. In fourteen stories of consummate prose, she traces with a moral scalpel the inter-relationship of Jew, Pagan, and Christian from the time of Augustan Rome to the present.

Chronology governs the pattern of these stories. Erudition, wit, irony, and fidelity to historical motifs govern the style. The human need to make gods out of human beings is the theme, projected as historical fatality.
