Abstract

SHOFAR Fall 1999 Vol. 18, No. I on the Torah in post-biblical Judaism contributes to this overall tendency. Moreover, it cannot be overlooked that in many statements Limbeck's view of priestly laws and the attitude of Jesus and Paul reflect a Roman Catholic theologian's criticism ofhis own church and her rigid application of canonical law. Since the time of the Enlightenment this has repeatedly been a function of anti-Jewish polemics. Such polemics can only be overcome by being exposed for what they are and by being addressed with exact historical work. Frank Criisemann Kirchliche Hochschule Bethel Bielefeld, Germany review translated by Clark Seha Studies in Hellenistic Judaism, by Louis H. Feldman. Leiden: E. J. Brill, 1996. 667 pp. Arbeiten zur Geschichte des antiken Judentums und des Urchristentums 30. n.p.I. Louis H. Feldman is Professor of Classics at Yeshiva University in New York. These 23 essays, written over the span of over 40 years, represent the most important statements of Feldman on relations between Jews and non-Jews in the Greco-Roman period (ca. 300 B.CE.-300 CE.) in the following special areas: I) Josephus; 2) Judaism and Christianity; 3) Latin literature and the Jews; 4) the Romans in rabbinic literature; 5)
