(Samuel and Althea Stroum Lectures in Jewish Studies) by Levine, Lee I. and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at This inevitably leads to thorough research of both Jewish and Hellenistic cultures in the period from Alexander the Great to Justinian, in their various interactions.

The title of this book should be rather Hellenisticism--if one might coin the word--than Hellenism, since it is concerned not with all the culture which produced the brilliant civilization of classical Hellas, but with its debasement which was spread over the world during the three centuries immediately preceding the Christian era. The Jewish response to the crises of Hellenism consisted of a shift in four theological emphases as well as an accentuation of Scripture and the synagogue. First, since Jerusalem had fallen, the focus shifted from the temple to an emphasis on ethics (Scott, ).

Introduction. The term “Hellenistic Judaism” is a conventional one, long used, but a misnomer according to many contemporary scholars.

Traditionally, “Hellenistic Judaism” was a designation for Judaism in the Greek-speaking world, including those Jews who spoke Greek and adopted (to some extent) a Greek way of life.

To what extent did Hellenism affect the material culture of Judaism and its social and religious practices. Hebrew University professor Lee Levine looks at literary, epigraphical. and archaeological evidence in an effort to sift through the relevant : Lee I.
