Rome and Jerusalem: The Clash of Ancient Civilizations
In 70CE, after four years of Jewish rebellion, Roman legions devastated the great city of Jerusalem. Sixty years later, its ruin was completed when Emperor Hadrian built a new city on top of it that Jews were forbidden even to enter.
In this highly acclaimed book, Martin Goodman examines the background and course of this titanic conflict – from the political ambitions of Roman military leaders to the spread of Christian influence through the empire – and its lasting consequences.
