The Holy Land
From The Publisher:
Peter Connolly's book brings to life the people and events of a crucial period in the history of the world.
Spanning a hundred years that culminate in the fall of Masada in 73 CE, Connolly reconstructs the daily life of the Jewish people in Judea and Galilee, and especially in Jerusalem.
The major historical events of this century are: the reign of Herod the Great, the rise of the Zealots, the rebuilding of the Temple, the crucifixion of Jesus, and the crushing of Jewish resistance at Masada. During this period the Roman emperors were Augustus, Tiberius, Caligula, Claudius, Nero, Vespasian, and Titus.
The book's fascinating illustrations, based on exhaustive up-to-date research, recreate minute details with stunning precision. The volume features a tour of the geography of the eastern Mediterranean and a review of archaeological excavations and discoveries in the region. For young adults (and adults) interested in Jewish history, the ancient world, and the beginnings of Christianity, this book offers thorough information with unique clarity.
