By Maurice H. Harris,Murat Ukray

Preface to the Revised & Illustrated Edition:

The twin objective of the revision of this paintings has been simplification and amplification.
The language has been recast in elements and there were further sub-titles inside of each one bankruptcy, cross-references and an index. principles corresponding to "Religion as law," the emblems of Philo and the advance of Messianism were made so simple as those topics admit of.
In looking illustrations to vivify the narrative it truly is unlucky that so little is out there. Ah! if we had images of Hillel, of Akiba the Martyr, of Judah the Saint, of the Jamnia Academy, of the attractiveness of the Babylonian Exilarch. yet this very absence of images is in itself somewhat Jewish history.

This new illustrated and designed variation comprises quotations from the literature of the classes coated, from the Apocrypha, Philo, Josephus and the Mishna. 3 chapters were extra, on "Stories and Sayings of the Sages of the Talmud" and one on "Rabbi Judah and his times." different chapters were positioned in additional logical series. either the Chronological Tables and the Notes are fuller. a brand new function has been brought in a "theme for dialogue" on the shut of every bankruptcy which may be discovered beneficial to check circles and Chautauqua societies. This has additionally been brought within the lately issued "Modern Jewish History."
