This book breaks new ground in the study of cultural unity in the Near East from pre-Roman to early Islamic times. Based on a thorough study of nearly 400 Greek and Latin inscriptions from Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, and Israel, this book shows how the formula "for salvation's sake" was fundamental to the political, social, and religious lives of hundreds of civic and military elites in the Near Elites. Presenting a new body of evidence, Jason Moralee provides a fresh look at how Romans used the inscriptions to secure the loyalty of their subjects.
