Umschl. etwas berieben. - Map: the Palestine of Josephus -- Introduction -- Family, Education and Formation -- The Greek Language in Josephus' Jerusalem -- Josephus' Account of the Breakdown of Consensus -- Josephus' Interpretation of the Jewish Revolt -- The Structure of the Jewish Revolt -- Josephus and the Civil War in Galilee -- Josephus as an Aramaic Writer -- Flavian Patronage and Jewish Patriotism -- Epilogue: The Later Josephus -- Appendixes 1. The native language of Josephus -- 2. The assistant theory -- 3. The dating of Josephus' Antiquities and Life. - Josephus, author of the Jewish War and the Jewish Antiquities, belongs equally to Jewish and to Greco-Roman history. A well-to-do priest and Pharisee at Jerusalem (who gives us the earliest 'testimony' to Jesus outside the Gospels), he was a contemporary and chronicler of the epoch-making changes which took place in the Roman empire of the first century A.D. and became a controversial general in the great Jewish revolt of 66-73 against Rome. Some have always thought him a traitor to the national cause, especially because he emerged as a Roman citizen and as a protege^ of a new dynasty of Roman emperors, the Flavians, against whom he had earlier fought. Living finally at Rome, he was in later life a Jew of the Dispersion, and made himself the Greek historian-apologist of the Jewish people and their culture. This book, by an ancient historian versed in both Greek and Hebrew, presents a new interpretation of the man and the writer, based on a re-assessment of the varied source-material and on important recent work in the relevant fields. Exploring the relationship between the writings and the different social and political environments in which Josephus moved, she offers a new sociological account of the Jewish revolt which casts fresh light on the author's attitudes. His achievement is constantly placed in the double context of Jewish values and the Greek historical tradition. This is the first serious general study of the subject to appear for over fifty years.
