Book Review: Katell Berthelot. Jews and Their Roman Rivals: Pagan Rome’s Challenge to Israel
Jewish history, Roman history, Katell Berthelot, law, religion
This is a magisterial work, one which sets high the bar in the comparative study of civilizations. In it, Prof. Katell Berthelot covers the sweep of 600 years, from the second century, BCE, to the fourth century, CE, as she analyzes the extensive impact of Rome on Jewish ideas of law, religion, and peoplehood and, secondarily, the corresponding impact of their rivals, the Jews, on Roman society and history.
