- Publisher Judas has been protrayed as an effete intellectual, a jelous lover, a greedy scoundrel, a misguided patriot, a doomed hero, a man destroyed by despair and God's special, misunderstood messenger and agent. This volume traces the development of the literature and legend surrounding the most famous traitor in Western history. Its purpose is not to find the Judas of history, but rather to provide readers with a map or family tree that shows the similiarities and connections between generations of the Judas story.

- Publisher A cross-disciplinary exploration of the different, and often surprising, ways in which Judas has been understood. It captures Judas as the arch-sinner, villain, hero and penitent.
