Sasanian Jewry and Its Culture by Daniel M. Friedenberg

Book Description

From 226 C.E. to 640 C.E., the Sasanian Empire occupied the territories now divided between Iran and Iraq and for brief periods between Syria and Armenia. One of the most significant material remnants of the large communities of Jews living within the empire are seals, almost all of which are signets whose styles, inscriptions, and sites of discovery provide important clues about the size and status of Jewish populations throughout the empire. Seals show how Jews within the empire adopted or resisted certain Sasanian symbols and sustained traditional Jewish references such as the lulab and etrog. This volume presents fifty-seven Jewish seals from the Sasanian Empire, as well as comparative Zoroastrian and Christian seals. The text identifies their provenance (if known), translates their inscriptions, and organizes them by their depiction or reference.

Books By Author Daniel M. Friedenberg

Sold to the Highest Bidder by Daniel M. Friedenberg Sold to the Highest Bidder, Hardback (January 2002)

Presents a review of the American presidency during the last half of the 20th century. This book emphasises that the New Deal concern for the underdog, a major social achievement, has been abandoned by presidents in the latter half of the century, along with tax policies that shifted wealth from the well-to-do to the less privileged.

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Land by Daniel M. Friedenberg Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Land, Hardback (April 1992)

Offers an account of the bloody, corruption-laden history of land speculation in America, from pre-colonial times to the election of President Thomas Jefferson. This work exposes the real motives influencing some of the major events in our nation's history while placing the lives and careers of America's forefathers in a disturbing light.
