Show Summary Details

Preview

This book is a reference compendium on the day-to-day lives of Jews in the land of Israel in Roman times. Ranging from subjects such as clothing and domestic architecture to food and meals, labour and trade, and leisure-time activities, it covers all the major themes. Individual articles introduce the reader to the current state of research on particular aspects of ancient Jewish everyday life — research that has been greatly enriched by critical methodological approaches to rabbinic texts, and by the growing interest of archaeologists in investigating the lives of ordinary people. Detailed bibliographies inspire further engagement by enabling readers to pursue their own lines of enquiry.

Keywords: Jews; Israel; ancient Jewish life; rabbinic texts; archaeologists; ancient Judaism; rabbinic literature; Roman provincial history; Roman provincial culture; ancient Christianity
