Re: Julian denies the authenticity of both Testimonium Flavianum and Taciteum

The passage attributed to Julian The reason for this is that they never even hoped that you would one day attain to such power as you have; for they were content if they could delude maidservants and slaves, and through them the women, and men like Cornelius and Sergius.

Re: The Elephantine Papyri

One point I am genuinely unsure about, is how far would the 'non-biblical' practices of the Elephantine community have been evident from the correspondence between them and Palestine taken on its own ? We have a wider variety of surviving letters etc than were available in Jerusalem. Did the Elephan...

Re: The Elephantine Papyri

A/ If one takes the accounts in the Hebrew Bible as having a historical basis, then Elephantine Judaism represents a form of Judaism arising before the reforms attributed to Ezra and Nehemiah.

Re: List of arguments to date Mark after Hadrian

The Treves's book is arrived. I read the following quote from pseudoHyppolitus; Ce n'est pas Vespasian qui installa l'idole dans le Temple; c'est la légion de Trajan.
