Studies in History (Scripta Hierosolymitana...

This anthology contains such articles as "The Holy Congregation in Jerusalem" by S. Safrai, "Persecutions and Maryrdom in Hadrian's Days" by M. D. Herr, "The Imperial Court-Jew Wolf Werthheimer as Dimlomatic Mediator" by B. Mevorah, "To whom did Mendelssohn Reply in his Jerusalem", by Jacob Katz, "Caesar: An Economic Biography and its Political Significance" by I. Shatzman and others.

PREFACE It is now eleven years since the first volume of  Studies in History appear­ed in this series. However, a considerable number of historical papers are included in several volumes of Scripta Hierosolymitana, e. g. in Vol. I ( Studies in Classics and Jewish Hellenism), Vol. II ( Studies in Medieval and Modern Thought and Literature), Vol. VIII, ( Studies in the Bible), Vol. IX, ( Studies in Islamic History and Civilization) and others. Like the first one, the present volume of historical studies reflects work being done by Hebrew University historians, most of them connected with the De­partment of History, the Department of Jewish History, the Department of Classics, the Institute of Asian and African Studies, and the Depart­ment of Contemporary Jewry. One should not, therefore, expect a central theme in a volume of this kind. Jerusalem, October 1972 David Asheri Israel Shatzman Chapter Home | TOC
