Power, Politics, and God: Religion in the Roman Empire

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

In Roman antiquity, gods and humans clustered in family groups.  By the fourth century, beginning with Constantine, Roman power politics both complicated and simplified the religious debates resulting from differing Jewish and Roman theologies. The application of Roman state coercive force was brought to bear, first, on other Christians (“heretics”), then on traditionalists (“pagans”), and finally, even on the source of the imperial church’s Old Testament scriptures – Jews. This lecture will trace the arc of these social and religious developments.


The lecture is a part of “Jews and Christians through the Centuries: Communities in Conflict and Contact”, a new series from the National Library of Israel
