January 2, 2015 Comments off

Erich S. Gruen, the author of “Hellenism and Persecution: Antiochus IV and the Jews,” considered theories of scholars about the reasons Antiochus IV may have had for imposing his notorious hellenisation policies upon the Jews, although under previous Seleucid rule, the Jews had been treated with favour. Gruen’s paper is included in “Hellenistic History and Culture,” edited by Peter Green. [Green, Peter, editor. Hellenistic History and Culture.
