Half a century ago, the primary contours of the history of the Jews in Roman times were not subject to much debate. This standard account collapsed, however, when a handful of insights undermined the traditional historical method, the method long enlisted by historians for eliciting facts from sources. In response to these insights, a new historical method gradually emerged. Rewriting Ancient Jewish History critiques the traditional historical method and makes a case for the new one, illustrating how to write anew ancient Jewish history. At the heart of the traditional historical method lie three fundamental presumptions. The traditional historical method regularly presumes that multiple versions of a text or tradition are equally authentic; it presumes that many ancient Jewish sources are the products of largely immanent forces of cloistered Jewish communities; and, barring any local grounds for suspicion, it presumes that most ancient Jewish texts faithfully reflect their sources and reliably recount events. Rewriting Ancient Jewish History unfurls the failings of this approach; it promotes the new historical method which circumvents the flawed traditional presumptions while plotting anew the limits of rational argumentation in historical inquiry. This crucial reappraisal is a must-read for students of Jewish and Roman history alike, and a fascinating case-study in how historians should approach their ancient sources.

Essays that explore the rich engagement of the Talmud with its cultural world The Babylonian Talmud (Bavli), the great compilation of Jewish law edited in the late Sasanian era (sixth–seventh century CE), also incorporates a great deal of aggada, that is, nonlegal material, including interpretations of the Bible, stories, folk sayings, and prayers. The Talmud’s aggadic traditions often echo conversations with the surrounding cultures of the Persians, Eastern Christians, Manichaeans, Mandaeans, and the ancient Babylonians, and others. The essays in this volume analyze Bavli aggada to reveal this rich engagement of the Talmud with its cultural world. Features: A detailed analysis of the different conceptions of martyrdom in the Talmud as opposed to the Eastern Christian martyr accounts Illustration of the complex ways rabbinic Judaism absorbed Christian and Zoroastrian theological ideas Demonstration of the presence of Persian-Zoroastrian royal and mythological motifs in talmudic sources

Geopolitics in Late Antiquity explores the geopolitical revolution which shook the foundations of the ancient world, the dawning of the millennium of Inner Asian dominance and virtual monopoly of world power (with interludes) that began with the rise of the Huns and then continued under the hegemony of various other steppe peoples. Kim examines first the geopolitical situation created by the rise of Inner Asian powers, and then the reactions of the great empires of Eurasia to this geopolitical challenge. A unique feature of this book is its in-depth analysis of the geostrategies (some successful, others misguided) adopted by China, Rome and Persia to cope with the growing Inner Asian threat. The conclusions and insights drawn from this analysis are then used to inform modern geopolitics, mainly the contest for hegemonic power between the United States and China. Geopolitics in Late Antiquity is a crucial resource for both academic and learned general readership, who have an interest in the fate of antiquity’s superpowers and also for those engaged in current international relations policy-making, who wish to learn from historical precedents.

English summary: Peter Schafer discusses the repercussions of the emerging Christianity on contemporary rabbinic Judaism. The idea of a divine duality (Father and Son) or trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) in particular has left more noticeable traces in rabbinic sources than most scholars admit. The Son of Man from the book of Daniel and the highest angel called Metatron (who even assumes the epithet Lesser God) play an important role. Even the concept of the Messiah's vicarious suffering finds its way back into Judaism - although it had been usurped for centuries by Christian theology. One might not only speak of the Birth of Christianity from the Spirit of Judaism but as well of the Birth of Judaism from the Spirit of Christianity. German description: Peter Schafer befasst sich mit den Ruckwirkungen des sich herauskristallisierenden Christentums auf das zeitgenossische rabbinische Judentum, d.h. den Einflussen, die das zu sich selbst findende Christentum auf das Judentum ausubte.Nach der viel diskutierten Erzahlung vom verschwundenen Messiasbaby im Jerusalemer Talmud werden Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Rabbinen und diversen Haretikern bezuglich der Frage des einen Gottes oder einer moglichen Vielzahl von Gottern untersucht. Vor allem die im Christentum allmahlich konkrete Gestalt annehmende Idee einer gottlichen Zweiheit (Vater und Sohn) bzw. Dreiheit (Vater, Sohn und Heiliger Geist) hat im rabbinischen Judentum deutlichere Spuren hinterlassen als bisher meist angenommen. Daneben spielen Vorstellungen eine wichtige Rolle, die sich aus dem Menschensohn des Danielbuches im Judentum und im Christentum entwickelten; im babylonischen Talmud und in der fruhen judischen Mystik tritt uns dann die Gestalt eines hochsten Engels mit Namen Metatron entgegen, der sogar den Beinamen Kleiner Gott erhalt. Abschliessend wird ein klassischer rabbinischer Midrasch vorgestellt, der ganz unbefangen den Gedanken des stellvertretenden Suhneleidens des Messias (wieder) in das Judentum einfuhrt.Die Grenzen zwischen Rechtglaubigkeit und Haresie erweisen sich auch im Judentum als fliessend, und mehr als einmal drangt sich die haretische Uberlegung auf, ob man nicht nur von der Geburt des Christentums aus dem Geist des Judentums sprechen sollte, sondern umgekehrt auch von der Geburt des Judentums aus dem Geist des Christentums.
