Emil Schurer's Geschichte des judischen Volkes im Zeitalter Jesu Christi, originally published in German between 1874 and 1909 and in English between 1885 and 1891, is a critical presentation of Jewish history, institutions, and literature from 175 B.C. to A.D. 135. It has rendered invaluable services to scholars for nearly a century. This work reminds students of the profound debt owed to nineteenth-century learning, setting it within a wider framework of contemporary knowledge, and provides a vital foundation on which future historians of Judaism in the age of Jesus may build. This classic reference work now features a new preface by Fergus Millar, which takes into account the huge impact the work has had since its original publication.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Vermes-Millar version of Schurer's justly famous The History of the Jewish People in the Age of Jesus Christ is a truly monumental achievement. -- Professor Edward Ullendorff, School of Oriental and Africa Studies, University of London, UK
It is the opinion of this reviewer that the new Schurer will be an indispensable resource for future historical work on this period... -- Howard Kee * Religious Studies Review *
The editors have rendered a magnificent service to scholarship by this excellent translation and updating of Schurer's classic. -- John Collins * The Catholic Biblical Quarterly *
With the completion of this project, the world of scholarship will possess an indispensable tool for the study of this period, which is the heyday of Judaism. -- Magen Broshi * The Jerusalem Post *
The appearance of the new Schurer is of such significance that it is not exceeded in importance by any recent publication and approached by very few. Schurer is the handbook par excellence for scholars, who are now in greatest debt to the editors for a labour of devotion and an achievement of sheer excellence. -- Samuel Sandmel * The Classical World *
