Christian Memories of the Maccabean Martyrs, Hardback Book

Christian Memories of the Maccabean Martyrs Hardback


This book examines texts and materials, ranging from the eastern Mediterranean to northwestern Europe, related to the Maccabean martyrs.

Joslyn-Siemiatkoski demonstrates that Christian thinkers constructed memories of the Maccabean martyrs that simultaneously appropriated Jewish traditions and obscured the Jewish origins of Christianity.
