THE ELTING LECTURE SERIES 2016
Description: Between c. 200 BCE and 400 CE, Rome changed
from a Republic into an Empire, Second Temple Israel changed
into Rabbinic Judaism, and Christianity changed from a small
Jewish sect into the state religion of the gentiles of the Empire.
None of these profound transformations can be understood
apart from the others, and the legacy of these linked transfor-
mations is the world we have lived in for over a millennium,
but we never study them as what they manifestly are: an
interlocking and interdependent whole. That is what we are
attempting to do in these three lectures.
1. Rome from Republic to Empire
2. Second Temple Israel to Rabbinic Judaism
3. Christianity from Jewish Origins to Gentile Church
