Description 

Highly recommended, these studies cover a span of time beginning with the Hasmoneans and the earliest intervention of Roman power in the land of Israel - that is, from the second and first pre-Christian centuries - and extended as far as the third and fourth centuries of the present era. Most of the questions dealt with originate in the inner world of Judaism and Jewish law (halacha). However, the issues are examined in relation to other factors as well, such as the Hellenistic literature of the Jews, early Christian traditions, and classical culture as a whole.
