Inhaltsangabe: 'If you want a gripping, well-written, detailed story of insurrection against Rome, supported by splendid illustrations, start here.'?The Sunday TelegraphAncient Palestine was a ferment of social and ideological conflict. Full-scale insurrectionary revolt exploded in AD 66 and took on a revolutionary character as moderate upper-class leaders were pushed aside and replaced by popular radicals. The war that followed was bitterly fought, and culminated in the five-month siege of Jerusalem in the summer of AD 70, which ended with the fall and destruction of the city amid appalling atrocities. Mopping-up operations ended with the spectacular siege of Masada in AD 73.First published in 2002, Dr Neil Faulkner's acclaimed Apocalypse is a gripping account of a series of events that rocked the Roman Empire. Despite their ultimate defeat, the Jewish rebels inspired future revolts and had huge implications for the future course, and transformative character, of the three great Mediterranean religions, Christianity, Judaism and Islam. As Dr Faulkner says in his conclusion, even failed revolutions change history.
Vom Verlag: The great revolt by the Jews against the occupying Roman power in the first century AD ended in bloody defeat. Drawing on a wide range of historical and archaeological sources, Neil Faulkner provides a blow?by?blow account of this long and bitter struggle, together with a shrewd analysis of the underlying issues. This event was a milestone in Jewish national consciousness.
