Abstract

384 ish interpretation of Rome as the fourth beast/empire in Daniel. Douglas Edwards compares Acts with Josephus and Chariton to demonstrate that although all three recognized the Empire, each saw their own god standing ultimately behind and above it; Vernon Robbins, on the other hand, uses the concept of "territoriality" in Acts to reveal how the Empire was seen as a "workplace" for the early evangelists. Martin Goodman compares the attitudes of other subject peoples to argue that, contrary to many modern ideas, the Jews were not actually more committed to revolt than the others; it is a pity that this wider perspective of other nations in the Empire does not appear more often in this Colloquium. From here we move into later concepts with Steven Fanning's study of Jerome and Gillian Clark's con- sideration of the Fathers. Finally, Philip Alexander introduces us to the Heikhalot literature of later Jewish mysticism of the fourth and fifth centu- ries ; here the downtrodden Jews project the image of the imperial court into heaven, where God is the emperor and they have access. The menu set before us is indeed rich and varied; unfortunately we can- not hear the conversation
