The Jews of Egypt synopsis
Hellenistic Egypt was the place that may be the first Jewish golden age, a "golden" time in Jewish memory as a moment of vibrant cultural interaction between Jews and their international hosts. This is a story of the adventures and misdeeds of the people of Israel in the land of Egypt, the years covered in the withdrawal of history under the Pharaohs.
A strange space of Jewish mercenaries on the island of Elephantine in the Upper Nile. The culmination of Jewish culture in the Ptolemies; and finally, the rapid retreat of the Jewish community and the catastrophic disappearance under Roman rule.
Joseph Melizi Moderzyowski uses scientific analysis to shed light on the reality of our image of the past. Jewish and pagan literary and literary texts are in line with the century's discoveries of archaeological and papyrus research that discovered the emperors' decrees as well as the modest correspondence of the general public.
In a puzzling conclusion, Modrzejewski examines the turning point in Western civilization: the short but crucial episode when the emerging Christian and Scandinavian Jews split the company.
