Jews Among Pagans and Christians by Judith Lieu

Book Description

In the period of Roman domination there were communities of Jews, some still in Palestine, some dispersed in and around the Roman Empire; they had to face at first the world-wide power of the pagan Romans and later on the emergence of Christianity as an Empire-wide religion. How they coped with these dramatic changes and how they influenced the new forms of religious life that emerged in this period provide the main themes of The Jews Among Pagans and Christians. Essays by the leading scholars in the field together with the introduction by the editors, offer new approaches to understanding the role of Judaism and the pattern of religious interaction characteristic of the period.

Christian Identity in the Jewish and Graeco-Roman World by Judith Lieu Christian Identity in the Jewish and Graeco-Roman World, Hardback (May 2004)

Exploring as to how a sense of being 'a Christian', or of 'Christian identity', was shaped within the setting of the Jewish and Graeco-Roman world, this work shows that, there were similarities and differences in the ways Jews and others were thinking about themselves, and asks what made early Christianity distinctive.

Image and Reality by Judith Lieu Image and Reality, Paperback (May 2003)

Judith Lieu examines the rhetorical function of Jews in the early texts of the second century and seeks to acknowledge the complex nature of an issue which is too easily proclaimed 'Christian anti-Semitism'.
