The aim of this book is to give access to sources which illustrate Graeco-Roman views on Jews and Christians from 200 B.C. to A.D. 200. Passages range from longer extracts written by historians to short incidental references by disparate authors which throw light on attitudes towards beliefs and social customs. The pagan religious background, especially the Mystery religions, is also described and illustrated by selected passages, so that the reader may have some idea of the general religious climate during this period. Every quotation is prefixed by a brief biography of the author and all passages have been translated into English, with explanatory comment when necessary. Connecting essays act as summaries and focus the attention on essential issues. These, together with a chronological chart and maps should enable a student coming fresh to the subject, without previous specialised knowledge, to see the period in historical perspective.ContentsGeneral Editor's Preface; Author's Foreword; Maps; Part I.
