The Jewish Diaspora in the Greco-Roman Era
Erich S. Gruen
Tuesdays, 10 a.m.-noon
Jan 28-Mar 11 (no class on Feb. 25)

The scattering of Jews has been emblematic of their existence for 2,500 years — and the "wandering Jew" a dominant image throughout the centuries. But that is not the whole story. Jews in the Greco-Roman period settled all over the Mediterranean long before the destruction of the Temple. And, instead of being driven out and languishing in exile, they migrated voluntarily in large numbers. Explore their relations with gentiles, accommodation to life under foreign rule, participation in Greek and Roman culture, the tensions between assimilation and tradition, and their attitudes toward the homeland.

Erich Gruen, professor emeritus at UC Berkeley, taught Greek, Roman, and Jewish history courses for more than 40 years. He has served on the Ph.D. committees of more than 90 graduate students. He has also published widely and been a visiting professor at Oxford, Cornell, Princeton, Stanford, University of Colorado, University of Minnesota, Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and the Getty Villa in Malibu.
