In this book, originally published in 1905, Ottley supplements his 1901 text, A Short History of the Hebrews, with a study on the development of religion in ancient Israel from Mosaic times to the beginning of Christianity. The interactions between Judaism and other religions during periods of subjugation and exile are also considered, as well as the impact such times had on Judaism's perception of itself. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in the history of Judaism and its place in the ancient world.
