The development of Judaism from ancient times to the modern day, shown in over 190 pictures. It traces the history of Judaism across the centuries, from ancient, rabbinic and medieval times to the present day. It discusses the creation of a Temple in Jerusalem, the Samaritans, Sadducees, Pharisees and Essenes, the emergence of rabbinic Judaism, the Jewish faith in the modern world, and untraditional Judaism. It is meticulously researched, with over 190 photographs of paintings, manuscripts, statues, important historical sites and archaeological revelations. It is a concise and readable account for both students and general readers. Judaism is one of the world's oldest monotheistic religions. This book covers the history of the Jews from the biblical period to the fall of the Temple, as well as life in the medieval and modern world. It explores many different forms of Jewish existence from the period of the twelve tribes through to the medieval mystics, and continues to modern kabbalism and Jewish renewal. The abundance of the Jewish heritage and its influence on other religions and modes of thought are also covered, including gender issues, the environment and vegetarianism. With its magnificent illustrations and expert text, the book is a fascinating guide to a rich and complex religion.
