Die Judische Revolution : Untersuchungen Zu Ursachen, Verlauf Und Folgen Der Hasmonaischen Erhebung
About this item
In 168 BCE, the Seleucid King Antiochus IV intervened against the Temple cult in Jerusalem, resulting in a revolt by the Hasmoneans that led to their establishment as high priests and to the independence of Judea. This study examines the causes and the consequences of the revolt as an historical process and offers a political-theological interpretation of the events.
