68 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What lies between the authoritative preeminence of the Mother Church of Jerusalem and the virtual extinction both of its life and apparently of all its local records? Dr. Brandon finds that the full significance of the fall of Jerusalem in A.D. 70 has been strangely neglected amongst scholars. In this original and exhaustive study he shows that this catastrophic event was of profound importance not only for the development of early Christianity but possibly also for its very survival."--Back cover

The judgment of the dead: an historical and comparative study of the idea of a post-mortem judgement in the major religions by S. G. F Brandon( Book )

24 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The judgment of the dead is one of the most remarkable and significant beliefs of mankind. The idea assumes not only a life after death, but also that the nature of that life will be determined by the individual's moral conduct while on earth. The belief first emerged in ancient Egypt about 2400 BC, where it found its most elaborate expression. The approach of this present book is strictly historical and comparative, and despite the bizarre and often shocking imagery used in depictions of the belief, an attempt has been made to handle the theme with sympathy. Only by an accurate yet sympathetic study can true insight be gained into the evaluation of human destiny in the various religions. -- Book jacket
