  5. A vote for Alexander the Great. While everyone knows that was Great, reached India and died young. Everything in the middle is a bit of a blur Robert

    Best Adult Fiction: I, Claudius Best Young Adult Fiction: Eagle of the Ninth Best Sequential Art: Asterix Best Ancient Writer: The Twelve Caesars Honestly, I recommend Suetonius to people before many other, more modern, books

    Jews And Romans

    True, but that was during a rebellion. The question raised by RomanStudent19 was whether there was a period where the Romans and Jews had a better relationship. I think the various posts show that they had. Also, remember that we are MUCH better informed as to Roman/Jewish relations than, say, the Dacians before Trajan's conquest of them. We don't know how bad relations were between them because there is (virtually) no information. Lack of evidence is not evidence of lack Robert

    Jews And Romans

    After Ceasar's death, "In this public mourning there joined a multitude of foreigners, expressing their sorrow according to the fashion of their respective countries; but especially the Jews 100, who for several nights together frequented the spot where the body was burnt." (Suetonius, Div. Julius, 84) Julius and the Jews had a good relationship, at least. "Roman control of Judaea was first established by Gnaeus Pompey. As victor he claimed the right to enter the Temple, and this incident gave rise to the common impression that it contained no representation of the deity - the sanctuary was empty and the Holy of Holies untenanted." Cornelius Tacitus, "The Histories" Book 5: 11-12 It is interesting to think that up till this moment, Pompey's life was a series of successes. After "violating" the Holy of Holies it became a series of frustrations... Curious? Robert
