Editorial Reviews


“Stroumsa’s effort to unravel the complicated maze of ideas that comprises the intellectual heritage of the ancient world is truly remarkable. Perhaps the most admirable quality of this book is its ability to find the common threads of unity among ancient religions without disparaging the differences between them. . . . It is certainly worth reading.”

(Marianne Djuth Journal of Early Christian Studies)

“A daring book, particularly in its underlying suggestion that Judaism should be seen as both anticipating and deeply influencing the late-antique shift in religious perceptions. By taking Judaism as a marker for religious change in late Antiquity, Stroumsa confronts the reader with an original historical narrative, and offers one possible (if controversial) way of understanding this important process of transformation.”

(Sergio Knipe The Classical Review)

"I have not read a book on classics that packs so much into so little space since Walter Burkert's Orientalizing Revolution."
(Peter J. Leithart Touchstone)

"This is a wise book and an excellent gateway into the study of Christian origins and comparative religion. And it is a work that helps us to better understand the religious transformations going on in the world today."
(Letter and Spirit)
