In the period of Roman domination there were communities of Jews, some still in Palestine, some dispersed in and around the Roman Empire; they had to face at first the world-wide power of the pagan Romans and later on the emergence of Christianity as an Empire-wide religion. How they coped with these dramatic changes and how they influenced the new forms of religious life that emerged in this period provide the main themes of The Jews Among Pagans and Christians. Essays by the leading scholars in the field together with the introduction by the editors, offer new approaches to understanding the role of Judaism and the pattern of religious interaction characteristic of the period.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In short, students of early Christianity and the fathers will find something of interest in every chapter, even f there is considerable variety in the extent to which authors delve into detail and document their assertions."
-"Vigiliae Christiane
..."the papers collected together in this anthology contain many valuable insights into the current state of scholarly debate on a host of issues surrounding the fields of early Christianity, Hellenistic and Rabbinic Judaisms, and Roman history. Furthermore, each essay includes a helpful bibliography and the volume as a whole includes a brief glossary, a chronological guide, maps, and an index which make it quite useful as a research tool."
