A landmark study of Hellenistic Judaism by one of the world's recognized experts–now fully revised and updated.
One of the most creative and consequential collisions in Western culture involved the encounter of Judaism with Hellenism. In his widely acclaimed study of the intellectual and moral relationship between "Athens and Jerusalem," John J. Collins examines the literature of Hellenistic Judaism, treating not only the introductory questions of date, authorship, and provenance, but also the larger question of Jewish identity in the Greco-Roman world. First published in 1984, BETWEEN ATHENS AND JERUSALEM is now fully revised and updated to take into account the best of recent scholarship.
