The History of Galilee, 47 BCE to 1260 CE
From Josephus and Jesus to the Crusades
M. M. Silver
Several world cities are held in reverence by some or all three monotheistic faiths, but no world region has allure to all three on a level matched by Galilee in northern Israel. The region where Jesus came of age, Galilee is where Christianity came into being as a communal faith; it is where Judaism reinvented itself in rabbinic, Talmudic form after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple; and it is where Islam established its place in the Holy Land, following epochal military triumphs in the region’s center or its outer rims. The History of Galilee, 47 BCE to 1260 CE: From Josephus and Jesus to the Crusades tells Galilee’s history, from Josephus and Jesus to the Crusades, in a multi-cultural format and lively narrative voice. This first-of-its-kind publication will be a rich source of information and a catalyst of inter-faith discussion among readers of varying backgrounds and interests.
