Editorial Reviews


"Stern persuasively argues that the evidence for local or religious lunar calendars alongside the civic solar year only attests to discrete "lunar events" rather than calendars, always being offered in the form of double dates relying on the standard of the solar calendar...[A] well-researched, stimulating, and provocative book."--Journal for the History of Astronomy

"This brilliantly conceived and magisterially executed book deserves to attract a readership from well beyond the relatively small circles of calendar specialists and aficionados." --The Journal of Theological Studies
