Rome and Jerusalem : the clash of ancient civilizations by Martin Goodman( Book )

36 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,774 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
The Roman world, 44 BC-AD 180 by Martin Goodman( Book )

40 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume provides a comprehensive outline of the Roman world from 44 BC to AD 180, the period from the death of Julius Caesar to Marcus Aurelius. Goodman presents a lucid and balanced picture of the Roman world, examining the Roman Empire from a variety of perspectives - cultural, political, civic, social and religious. Goodman's volume represents a broad approach to the study of the Roman Empire, exploring the influence of the provinces and the fringes of the Empire on Rome, and the effects of Rome on the provinces and the emergence within pagan society of rabbinic Judaism and Christianity." "The Roman World 44 BC-AD 180 will be of vital interest to the student of Roman history and civilization."--Jacket
The ruling class of Judaea : the origins of the Jewish revolt against Rome, A.D. 66-70 by Martin Goodman( Book )

44 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and held by 763 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 )

24 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Much of the book focusses on the history of Judaism in late antiquity. Dr Goodman makes a detailed and radical re-evaluation of the evidence for Jewish missionary attitudes in the late Second Temple and Talmudic periods, questioning many commonly held assumptions, in particular the view that Jews proselytized energetically in the first century CE. This leads him on to take issue with the common notion that the early Christian mission to the gentiles imitated or competed with contemporary Jews. Finally, the author puts forward some novel suggestions as to how the Jewish background to Christianity may nonetheless have contributed to the enthusiastic adoption of universal proselytizing by some followers of Jesus in the apostolic age

Apologetics in the Roman Empire : pagans, Jews, and Christians( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 446 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." "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." "These studies, ranging in time from the New Testament to the early fourth century, and including novel contributions by specialists in ancient history, Jewish history, ancient philosophy, the New Testament, and patristics, will put the study of ancient religious apologetic on to a new footing and make the book of value to scholars in each of these various disciplines."--Jacket

The Roman Empire : economy, society, and culture by Peter Garnsey( Book )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in French and English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the first, stable period of the Principate (roughly from 27 BC to AD 235), when the empire reached its maximum extent, Roman society and culture were radically transformed. But how was the vast territory of the empire controlled? Did the demands of central government stimulate economic growth, or endanger survival? What forces of cohesion operated to balance the social and economic inequalities and high mortality rates? Why did Roman governments freeze the official religion while allowing the diffusion of alien, especially oriental, cults? Are we to see in their attitude to Christianity a policy of toleration - or simply confusion and a failure of nerve? These are some of the many questions posed in this book, which offers the first overall account of the society, economy and culture of the Roman empire. Addressed to non-specialist readers no less than to scholars, it breaks with the traditional historian's preoccupation with narrative and politics. As an integrated study of the life and outlook of the ordinary inhabitants of the Roman world, it deepens our understanding of the underlying factors in this important formative period of world history."--Book cover
