Review of Books / Journal for the Study of Judaism 41 (2010) 366-438 387 The Sculptural Environment of the Roman Near East: Reﬂections on Culture, Ideol- ogy, and Power . Edited by Yaron Z. Eliav, Elise A. Friedland, and Sharon Herbert. (Interdisciplinary Studies in Ancient Culture and Religion, 9). Leuven-Dudley, MA: Peeters, 2008. Pp. 769. Paperback. €85.00. ISBN 978-90-429-2004-0. The “mass media” of the Roman world, statues, are the subject of this impressive volume: almost eight hundred pages, enriched by ﬁgures and maps, a rich bibli- ography and a useful index, which focus on the eastern shores of the Mediterra- nean, Syria, Arabia, Judea, and also Egypt, Asia Minor and Persia, during ﬁve hundred years, from the second to the seventh century C.E. The purpose is that of revealing their cultural contexts, signiﬁcance and meanings, examining the political, religious and social messages they convey. The essays presented, stemming from an international conference that took place at the University of Michigan and the Toledo Museum of Art in the autumn of 2004, investigate Roman sculpture from multiple perspectives, encompassing the manifold disciplines and ﬁelds of research involved, from art history to archaeology, classics to history, and folklore to religion.
