Summary
From the Publisher: 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
Summary
Explains how the first generation of Christians distanced themselves from their Jewish origins and then became hostile to Jews as their influence spread within the empire, in a critical study that examines the origins of anti-Semitism
