A landmark study of Hellenistic Judaism by one of the world's recognized experts. One of the most creative and consequential collisions in Western culture involved the encounter of Judaism with Hellenism. In his widely acclaimed study of the intellectual and moral relationship between "Athens and Jerusalem," John J. Collins examines the literature of Hellenistic Judaism, treating not only the introductory questions of date, authorship, and provenance, but also the larger question of Jewish identity in the Greco-Roman world.
John J. Collins is the Holmes Professor of Old Testament Criticism and Interpretation at Yale University. His many books include "Beyond the Qumran Community: The Sectarian Movement of the Dead Sea Scrolls," "Introduction to the Hebrew Bible," and "The Scepter and the Star: Messianism in Light of the Dead Sea Scrolls."
