This book deals with the religious lives of Jews in the Roman world from late Second Temple times to the Later Roman Empire.The studies collected here analyse a series of issues important in the development of Judaism in this period: the role of the Temple and pilgrimage in the first century C.E.; the attitude of Jews to the physical texts of the Torah and to the scribes who produced them; the extent of variety and change within Judaism before and after 70 C.E. and the nature of the evidence for particular types of Judaism; the role of synagogues and images in Jewish worship; and relations between Jews and Christians in the early centuries.The book should be particularly useful to students of ancient Judaism and those interested in Christian origins.
