Abstract

While Jewish Palestine has been at the focus of scholarly interest, Greek Palestine has not yet received similar attention. This book attempts to investigate the intellectual life in that country in the Hellenistic world and in the Roman Empire. The two perspectives taken are a full prosopographical survey of Greek intellectuals in ancient Palestine and an in-depth study of the Greek intellectuals in one particular city, Ascalon. A survey of the penetration of Latin among the educated Greek-speaking inhabitants of the country concludes the book.

Rezensionen

"...ein Referenzwerk [...], von dem weitere Untersuchungen zur Bildungsgeschichte Palästinas ausgehen können und sollten."
Marcus Sigismund, Bonner Jahrbücher 214, 2014

"Geiger’s study will be an indispensable resource for those investigating ancient Paletine, and fills a considerable gap in modern scholarship by examining the specifically Hellenic component of Palestine’s intellectual landscape. As a source reference it is both convenient and astute."
Fotini Hadjittofi, Evphrosyne: Revista de filología clássica 44, 2016
