In the Shadow of Empires: Jews in the Ancient World with Bob Mayer.
In the centuries before the Roman destruction of the Temple and the great Diaspora, the ancient Jews lived a precarious existence
between great empires and conquering armies. The class looks at the general history of this period
from roughly 600 BCE through 70 CE, with a focus on the Hellenic period and the challenges the
Jewish people faced as a small
community in the midst of giants. 7 sessions on Mondays from 5:45-6:45 pm starting October 28
