Zadok's Heirs: The Role and Development of the High Priesthood in Ancient Israel by Deborah W. Rooke

This unique study is the first in-depth examination of the high priesthood in ancient Israel, from the earliest local chief priests in the pre-monarchic period up to the Hasmonaean priest-kings in the first century BCE. Deborah Rooke offers fresh insights about the nature of the high priesthood and challenges traditional scholarly approaches to the topic.
