Judaism and Rome: New Website

Posted for Aitor Blanco:

Dear colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the opening of the website for the ERC project “Re-thinking Judaism’s Encounter with the Roman Empire: Rome’s Political and Religious Challenge to Israel and its Impact on Judaism (2nd century BCE – 4th century CE” (short title: “Judaism and Rome”). To visit the website and learn about the project, please go to: judaism-and-rome.cnrs.fr

The website gives access to ancient sources connected to the theme of Roman imperialism and its reception by the provincials, providing as much information as possible: images, original text, translation…

It also provides the reader with an original and detailed analysis of each source, a service that is very rarely offered on the web, and which makes this website comparable to a rich sourcebook in Open Access.

Finally, it seeks to promote interdisciplinary discussion between scholars working on Roman history, Jewish Studies, Epigraphy, Numismatics, Classics, Patristics, History of Christianity, etc.

We welcome your feedback!

Best wishes,

Katell Berthelot, PI of the ERC project “Judaism and Rome,” together with the “Judaism and Rome” team
