In the present volume, scholars from Europe, the United States, and Israel join forces to honor a most esteemed colleague and friend, Gideon Foerster, professor of classical archaeology at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The essays included in this volume all present new archaeological, epigraphical, and literary evidence, which derives from a variety of sites including Jerusalem, Qumran, the Gaza strip, Samaria-Sebaste, Caesarea, Beth Shean, the Galilee, and several sites outside the Land of Israel. The book is not only essential for those wishing to familiarize themselves with the latest discoveries and developments in the field of classical, Jewish, and early Christian archaeology. It is also a valuable resource for scholars interested in the larger historical question of how Jews interacted with their non-Jewish contemporaries during Roman, late antique, and early medieval times.
