Mason, Josephus, Volume 2a: Judean War 4 (Brill)

Flavius Josephus: Translation and Commentary, Volume 2a: Judean War 4

Series: Flavius Josephus: Translation and Commentary, Volume: 2a

Author: Steve Mason

Josephus wrote his most impactful history, The Judean War, in seven volumes. The volume translated here and furnished with a full historical commentary, is pivotal. Filled with high drama and penetrating assessments of human behavior under extreme duress, it brings readers from Galilee and mass suicide at Gamala in the Golan to Vespasian’s rise to imperial power. In between, Josephus explains how first John of Gischala and then Simon bar Giora came to be the two dominant figures in Jerusalem, setting up the siege of Titus. This volume also introduces the war’s most famous antagonists: the Zealots (or Disciples).
