In 66 CE the historian Flavius Josephus was one of the military leaders of the Jewish War against the Romans. The rebellion was initially successful and took several years to the Roman Army to regain control of the region. Surprisingly enough, however, there were Jews like Herod Agrippa II, Berenice, Tiberius Alexander, and eventually Josephus himself, who played a crucial role in the repression of the revolt and in the rise to power of Vespasian and Titus as the new Roman Emperors. The Jewish War turned into a civil strife with Jewish soldiers and Jewish commanders besieging Jerusalem with the Romans. The course aims to explore these forgotten aspects of the Jewish War.

Intended Audience:

This course is open to graduates and advanced undergraduates students
