Emil Sch rer's Geschichte des judischen Volkes im Zeitalter Jesu Christi, originally published in German between 1874 and 1909 and in English between 1885 and 1891, is a critical presentation of Jewish history, institutions, and literature from 175 B.C. to A.D. 135. It has rendered invaluable services to scholars for nearly a century. This work reminds students of the profound debt owed to nineteenth-century learning, setting it within a wider framework of contemporary knowledge, and provides a vital foundation on which future historians of Judaism in the age of Jesus may build. This classic reference work now features a new preface by Fergus Millar, which takes into account the huge impact the work has had since its original publication.
