    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 24.95

    In late antiquity, as Christianity emerged from Judaism, it was not only the new religion that was being influenced by the old.

In The Jewish Jesus , Peter... more...

  • Holy Hatredby Robert Michael

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 34.00

    With the conversion of Constantine in 312, Christianity began a period of political and cultural dominance that it would enjoy until the twentieth century.

  • Jew and Gentile in the Ancient Worldby Louis H. Feldman

    Princeton University Press 1996; US$ 65.00

    Relations between Jews and non-Jews in the Hellenistic-Roman period were marked by suspicion and hate, maintain most studies of that topic. But if such conjectures are true, asks Louis Feldman, how did Jews succeed in winning so many adherents, whether full-fledged proselytes or "sympathizers" who adopted one or more Jewish practices? Systematically... more...
