Summary How did the dominant ideology of the Roman Empire affect the lives of Jewish and Christian religious minority communities? Which word describes best the relations of ancient Judaism and early Christianity with the Roman Empire: antagonism, adaptation or indifference? This volume addresses these and related questions from fresh and varied perspectives using diverse methodological approaches, including rhetorical, postcolonial and historical studies as well as seminal source materials from all sides.
