Purim & Persia: Rediscovering Esther Through Court Culture and Politics

Hosted By: London School of Jewish Studies (LSJS)

Discover how academic research serves to reinforce and deepen the religious message of the Book of Esther. The author of the Megillah was clearly familiar with the rarefied world of the Achaemenid Persian court, with its courtiers and concubines, feasting and drinking, and policies and patronage. Listen to an exchange between two lovers of the Book of Esther: Professor Lloyd Llewellyn Jones, whose expertise and passion is ancient Persia, and Rabbi Dr. Raphael Zarum, who is continually surprised by the resonances of the text with ancient artifacts.
