This overview of the Greco-Roman period in ancient Palestine integrates the evidence of ancient literary sources with the findings of recent archaeological investigations at sites of religious significance. It reveals the tumultuous changes – material, intellectual and religious – that followed Alexander the Great's conquest in 332 BCE, with a special focus on the site of Sepphoris in Galilee, which provides an excellent case study illustrating how a major Jewish centre came to accommodate Greek and Roman culture.
