A keyword search in our library catalog for "judea and (greek or greece)" yields few items, but one book that might be of interest is
|The letter and the scroll : what archaeology tells us about the Bible / Robin Currie and Stephen G. Hyslop.|
|Publisher||Washington, D.C. : National Geographic, c2009.|
The call number is BS621 .C87 2009 and it is located on the 3rd floor of the library.
Other books that may be of interest to you are:
The great transformation : the beginning of our religious traditions / Karen Armstrong BL430 .A76 2006 3rd floor
Life in the ancient Near East, 3100-332 B.C.E. / Daniel C. Snell DS62.23 .S65 1997 3rd floor (includes discussion of ancient greece) also available as an ebook.
Keyword searches on "ancient israel" and on "ancient greece" will give you lists of books we have in our collection on this topic. I see several e-books or electronic books come up for "ancient israel". If you wish to access these books remotely you will need to be a SAC student or employee and provide your SAC user name and Banner ID. If you are not affiliated with SAC you can come to the library in person to access some (but not all) ebooks on a library computer.
- I can't cite the exact places (I'm sure there are online indices available and there are definitely paper indices) but the Talmud refers to several interactions between Talmudic sages and Greek scholars...It seems the Greeks viewed the Israelites as espousing "eastern" or "Indian" philosophies. These events would have taken place in the 2nd Temple era (after the Babylonian captivity)...close to the time when Israel was known as Iudea...However, prior to Roman vassalage, Israel wan't known as Iudea at all.
- Thanks for your comment! Helpful information.
