By Maurice H. Harris,Murat Ukray

Preface to the Revised & Illustrated Edition:

The twin goal of the revision of this paintings has been simplification and amplification.
The language has been recast in components and there were extra sub-titles inside each one bankruptcy, cross-references and an index. principles similar to "Religion as law," the emblems of Philo and the improvement of Messianism were made so simple as those matters admit of.
In looking illustrations to vivify the narrative it truly is unlucky that so little is on the market. 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 a little bit Jewish history.

This new illustrated and designed variation comprises quotations from the literature of the sessions lined, 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 useful to review circles and Chautauqua societies. This has additionally been brought within the lately issued "Modern Jewish History."
