INTRODUCTION In the last decades the interest of the scholarly world in the history, culture, religion, and archaeology of the Palestine of the second temple has increased markedly. This is in part due to the discovery of new manuscripts, the new directions in New Testament scholarship, and the growing attraction of rabbinical literature. At the moment, however, the articles dealing with topics from the Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman periods are to be found scattered far and wide in the most various periodicals, with the unfortunate result that many important contributions become difficult of access for numbers of scholars. This is, of course, a deplorable waste of expensive material, and renders satisfactory international co-operation in this very worth-while field if not impossible, at any rate extremely difhcult. The best way of achieving international co-ordination seemed to be the establishment of a periodical devoted to the study of Judaism in the Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman periods-a periodical that would be of importance not only for students of the Old and New Testaments, but also for biblical archaeologists, students of rabbinica, and those classicists and historians of religion whose subject is the Hellenism of the East.
