Memory in Jewish, Pagan and Christian Societies of the Graeco-Roman World (Library Of Second Temple Studies Series)

Doron Mendels

Memory in Jewish, Pagan and Christian Societies of the Graeco-Roman World (Library Of Second Temple Studies Series)

Doron Mendels

$132.00

Paperback
The ten studies in this book explore the phenomenon of public memory in societies of the Graeco-Roman period. Mendels begins with a concise discussion of the historical canon that emerged in Late Antiquity and brought with it the (distorted) memory of ancient history in Western culture. The following nine chapters each focus on a different source of collective memory in order to demonstrate the patchy and incomplete associations ancient societies had with their past, including discussions of Plato's Politeia, a ?site of memory? of the early church, and the dichotomy existing between the reality of the land of Israel in the Second Temple period and memories of it.
