Articles examine the city of Jerusalem and other Jewish communities of the Mediterranean diaspora, as reflected in the writings of Luke, Josephus and Philo. Topics covered include social identity, everyday life and religious practice. This will be of interest to students of Roman history, biblical studies, ancient Judaism and Hellenistic history. It is used in a technical sense to refer to certain Jewish books written in the Hellenistic, Roman period that came to be included in the Old Greek Jewish scriptures. Cannon The authorized collection of material constituting the sacred writings of a religious community: The material is believed to have special, usually divine, authority.

The greater part of the fifth book of the Sibylline Oracles is probably of Jewish origin, with Christian interpolations that can not be in all cases distinguished. The dates which are assigned to some of the oracles vary between the first century C.E. and the time of Hadrian. It is difficult to distinguish the Jewish passages in books i.-ii.   The Hellenistic Period is a part of the Ancient Period for the European and Near Asian space. The use of this period is justified by the extent of the Hellenic culture in most of these areas, due to the Greek political presence especially in Asia after Alexander's conquests, but also to a new wave of Greek consequence, the Hellenistic Period is usually accepted to begin in

It also attested to the lively cross-fertilisation between Jewish and Greek culture in the Hellenistic period. It is ultimately thanks to Alexander that we know of (and even have fragments of) Greek epic poems written by Jews on Jewish themes and even a remarkable Greek tragedy composed by one Ezekiel on the theme of the Israelite exodus.

This book explains why the best way to understand the Jewish historical experience is to look at Jewish people, not just as a religious or ethnic group or a nation or "people," but, as bearers of civilization.

This approach helps to explain the greatest riddle of Jewish civilization, namely, its continuity despite destruction, exile, and loss of political independence.4/5(1).

Writes: Early Jewish Writings and History Editor(s) of: Jewish Civilization in the Hellenistic-Roman period. Jewish culture and civilization during the Hellenistic period was in intense dialogue with Hellenistic culture and civilization, beginning with the translation of Hebrew scriptures into Greek, a.

Hellenistic Judaism was a form of Judaism in classical antiquity that combined Jewish religious tradition with elements of Greek the fall of the Western Roman Empire and the early Muslim conquests of the eastern Mediterranean, the main centers of Hellenistic Judaism were Alexandria in Egypt and Antioch in Syria (now in southern Turkey), the two main Greek urban settlements of the.

In Egypt, Jewish settlements were established by Jewish soldier contingents brought there by the Persians. These exilic and postexilic communities were a modest prelude to the remarkable expansion in the numbers and distribution of diaspora Jews that occurred in the Hellenistic era.

Biblical literature - Biblical literature - Persian and Hellenistic influences: Some of the Apocrypha (e.g., Judith, Tobit) may have been written already in the Persian period (6th–4th century bce), but, with these possible exceptions, all the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha were written in the Hellenistic period (c.

To a general historian the term "Hellenistic" describes the literature of the period from the death of Alexander the Great ( B.C.E.) until Rome's predominance in the Mediterranean (c.

30 B.C.E.).Sometimes the same general term is used to refer to Jewish material as well; thus, the Book of Ecclesiastes, early rabbinic literature, and the *Dead Sea Scrolls are sometimes referred to as.

The Hellenistic period lasted from B.C. until 31 B.C. Alexander the Great built an empire that stretched from Greece all the way to India, and his campaign changed the world: It. Theophrastus was the first of the four Greek authors of the early Hellenistic period to write on the Jews.¹ He was born in Eresus on the island of Lesbos in the late seventies of the fourth century b.c.e., and was to spend some decades of his life in the company of Aristotle, first in Assos on the northwest coast of Asia Minor, then in the Macedonian court at Stagira in Chalcidice, and.

The Hellenistic period begins formally with the arrival of Alex­ander the Great in the Near East in BCE, but this date is not the beginning of Greek influence in the region. The Near East as a whole, and Palestine and its Jewish residents more particularly, first came under Aegean influence in.

The most important event of the Hellenistic period, though, is the translation of the Torah into Greek in Ptolemaic Egypt. The Greeks, in fact, were somewhat interested (not much) in the Jewish religion, but it seems that they wanted a copy of the Jewish scriptures for the library at the Exile, the Exiles began to purify their religion and practices and turned to the Mosaic.
