Comments Alexander to Constantine: Archaeology of the Land of the Bible, Vol 3

  • Erik Graff

    This is a generally accessible review of the history of what the Romans came to call "Palestine" from the time of Alexander the Great until that of Constantine. Given the time frame, most attention is paid to the Jewish communities, particularly from the period of the second commonwealth until that of Herod. The archaeology serves to illustrate the history and is generally accessible, although I admit to having had to look up several technical terms in large dictionaries.

    Unfortunately for this book, Vol 3 in the Anchor Archaeology of the Land of the Bible Series, I had just read Vol 2, by Ephraim Stern--a wonderful book, btw! Perhaps Vol 2 was just a hard act to follow, but I was hugely disappointed in Alexander to Constantine. Archaeology? What archaeology? It was a slick superficial treatment of 600 of the most complex years in the history of the Levant, accomplished in 360 pages (including index, and many pictures). As a brief introduction to the Roman period [...]

    For those interested in the history of the Biblical world based on strong evidence rather than assumptions, this is definitely a good place to start. This is a well-researched book with plenty of detail, but it also provides contextual overviews to paint the big picture. The illustrations are plentiful and very helpful. Nice work!

    Bon livre, mais moins archéologique que les autres de la série
