Jews in a Graeco-Roman world by Martin Goodman( )

36 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers in this book represent a unique integration of Jewish history and classics. They tackle from different angles the extent to which Jews in the Graeco-Roman period differed from other peoples in the Mediterranean region, and how much Jewish evidence can be used for the history of the wider classical world. The authors make extensive use not only of types of evidence familiar to classicists, such as inscriptions and the writings of Josephus, but also Jewish religious literature, including Rabbinic texts. The various studies demonstrate that, although Jews lived to some extent apart from others with distinctive customs, in many ways their history also highlights the cultural presuppositions and preoccupations of their non-Jewish contemporaries." "The book aims to encourage wider use of the Jewish evidence by classicists and will be important for all students of the classical world."--Jacket
Rome and Jerusalem : the clash of ancient civilizations by Martin Goodman( Book )

46 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,828 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A magisterial history of the titanic struggle between the Roman and Jewish worlds that led to the destruction of Jerusalem. Martin Goodman--equally renowned in Jewish and in Roman studies--examines this conflict, its causes, and its consequences with unprecedented authority and thoroughness. He delineates the incompatibility between the cultural, political, and religious beliefs and practices of the two peoples and explains how Rome's interests were served by a policy of brutality against the Jews. At the same time, Christians began to distance themselves from their origins, becoming increasingly hostile toward Jews as Christian influence spread within the empire. This is the authoritative work of how these two great civilizations collided and how the reverberations are felt to this day.--From publisher description

A history of Judaism by Martin Goodman( Book )

25 editions published between 2017 and 2019 in English and held by 1,121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Judaism is one of the oldest religions in the world, and it has preserved its distinctive identity despite the extraordinarily diverse forms and beliefs it has embodied over the course of more than three millennia. A History of Judaism provides the first truly comprehensive look in one volume at how this great religion came to be, how it has evolved from one age to the next, and how its various strains, sects, and traditions have related to each other. In this magisterial and elegantly written book, Martin Goodman takes readers from Judaism's origins in the polytheistic world of the second and first millennia BCE to the temple cult at the time of Jesus. He tells the stories of the rabbis, mystics, and messiahs of the medieval and early modern periods and guides us through the many varieties of Judaism today. Goodman's compelling narrative spans the globe, from the Middle East, Europe, and America to North Africa, China, and India. He explains the institutions and ideas on which all forms of Judaism are based, and masterfully weaves together the different threads of doctrinal and philosophical debate that run throughout its history."--
The ruling class of Judaea : the origins of the Jewish revolt against Rome, A.D. 66-70 by Martin Goodman( Book )

41 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 838 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Goodman examines the background of the AD 66 Judean revolt against Rome. He attempts to explain both the rebellion itself and its temporary success by discussing the role of the Jewish ruling class in the sixty years preceding the war and in the independent state that lasted until AD 70. The author shows that the revolt's ultimate cause was a misunderstanding by Rome of the status criteria of Jewish society

Mission and conversion : proselytizing in the religious history of the Roman Empire by Martin Goodman( Book )

28 editions published between 1994 and 2011 in English and held by 667 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book tackles a central problem of comparative religious history: proselytizing by Jews and pagans in the ancient world, and the origins of missions in the early Church. Why did some individuals in the first four centuries of the Christian era believe it desirable to persuade outsiders to join their religious group, while others did not? In this book, the author offers a new hypothesis about the origins of Christian proselytizing, arguing that mission is not an inherent religious instinct, that in antiquity it was found only sporadically among Jews and pagans, and that even Christians rarely stressed its importance in the early centuries
Apologetics in the Roman Empire : pagans, Jews, and Christians by Mark J Edwards( Book )

20 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first to tackle the origins and purpose of literary religious apologetic in the first centuries of the Christian era by discussing, on their own terms, texts composed by pagan and Jewish authors as well as by Christians."--BOOK JACKET. "Previous studies of apologetic have focused primarily on the Christian apologists of the second century. These, and other Christian authors, are also represented in this volume but, in addition, experts in the religious history of the pagan world, in Judaism, and late antique philosophy examine very different literary traditions to see to what extent techniques and motifs were shared across the religious divide."--BOOK JACKET

The Jewish war by Flavius Josephus( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In August of AD 70 the city of Jerusalem was destroyed by Roman forces after a six-month siege. This was the disastrous outcome of a Jewish revolt against Roman domination which began in AD 66 with some early success, but soon became mired in factional conflict. The war ended in the destruction of the famous Jewish Temple (rebuilt by Herod the Great a century before). The remarkable story of the war is narrated by an eye-witness and participant, Josephus. He was at first a rebel commander, then after his capture, supported Titus in the final assault on Jerusalem. Josephus spares no detail of a horrific conflict - atrocities on both sides, the reign of terror in Jerusalem, the appalling conditions of the siege, and the final mass suicide at Masada. His vivid narrative is our prime source for this period of history. It is a dramatic story, which resonates to the present day. -- Amazon.com

Toleration within Judaism by Martin Goodman( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Bible itself calls the Jewish people 'a company of nations', suggesting that difference within Judaism is not a new phenomenon. It has continued throughout Jewish history, and this volume investigates how and why such difference has been tolerated. Drawing on examples from different geographical areas and from ancient times to the present, the contributors consider why Jews sometimes attempt to impose constraints on other Jews or relate to them as if they were not Jews at all, but at other times recognize differences of practice and belief and develop ways of handling them. In doing so, they provide an insight into a history of Judaism as a complex web of interactions between groups of Jews despite grounds for mutual antagonism.--
A history of Judaism by Martin Goodman( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judaism is by some distance the oldest of the three Abrahamic religions and, despite the extraordinarily varied forms it has taken and diverse beliefs it has contained over three millennia, it has been generally understood by both Jews and gentiles as a single entity. There have been many histories of the Jewish people but remarkably few attempts to relate the history and evolution of Judaism itself. In this book, the first comprehensive, single-volume work of its kind in English, Martin Goodman explains how Judaism came to be and how it has developed from one period to another, as well as the ways in which its varieties have related to each other. A History of Judaism ranges from the religion's inception amidst polytheistic societies in the second and first millennia BCE, through the Temple cult at the time of Jesus to the rabbis, mystics and messiahs of medieval and early modern times and, finally, the many denominations of the contemporary Jewish world. It is a truly global story, spanning (of course) the Middle East, Europe and North Africa, but also China, India and America, and one that accounts for the threads of doctrinal and philosophical debate running through the religion's history as well as the institutions on which (or in reaction to which) all forms of Judaism are based. This book addresses one of the world's great religions on a grander scale than any predecessor. --
