The End of the Hasmonean Dynasty and its Effects on Judea and Judaism

Thursday, March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Nadav Sharon, Jewish Studies Librarian, University of Toronto

The end of the Hasmonean dynasty and the beginning of Roman domination of Judea, in the middle part of the first century BCE,  is a relatively neglected but momentous period in Judean history.  Beyond a historical reconstruction this lecture will explore the impact of the Roman conquest on the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, enhance the understanding of later Judean-Roman relations and the roots of the Great Revolt, and examine how this early period of Roman domination had an impact on later developments in Judean society and religion.
