Drawing on the most recent, groundbreaking archaeological research, Eric M. Meyers and Mark A. Chancey re-narrate the history of ancient Palestine in this comprehensive and richly illustrated book. Covering the span from the conquest of Alexander the Great in the fourth century BCE until the reign of the Roman emperor Constantine in the fourth century CE, the authors synthesize archaeological evidence with ancient literary sources, including the Bible, to offer a sustained overview of the tumultuous intellectual and religious changes of the Greco-Roman period.Meyers and Chancey demonstrate how the transformation of the ancient Near East under the influence of the Greeks and then the Romans led to foundational changes in both the material and intellectual worlds of the Levant. Through the archaeological record they reveal how Judaism and Christianity were virtually indistinguishable for centuries, until the rise of imperial Christianity with Emperor Constantine. The only current book to focus on the archaeology of Palestine in this period, Alexander to Constantine sheds powerful new light on the land of the Bible.
