The Roman Emperor Julian is among the most vilified by ancient Christian writers. His interest in restoring the religion of the ancient Greeks and Romans earned him the ascription of “Apostate.” Though he was never in the league of Nero or Diocletian, he is accused of great persecutions against the Christians. However, he is also one of the few Roman emperors who had very favorable connections with the Jews. Thus, in Jewish histories he is not seen as a tyrant or a persecutor but as a benevolent and able leader. This study explores Julian's actions in regards to the Jews with special attention given to his advances toward rebuilding the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. It offers the reader an insight into another aspect of Julian’s reign.

Michael Adler(1868-1944) was an exceptional scholar of Jewish history and the Hebrew language. His publications range from works on grammar to synagogue histories. Several of his works focus on the history of Jews in England.

Judaism Without God?

Judaism as Culture, Bible as Literature
ISBN: 978-1-60724-341-0
The humanistic, non-religious approach of this book presents Judaism as the Culture of the Jewish People and God as a literary figure created by the authors of the Bible. This book defines key concepts in the discourse of Judaism as Culture. It offers a concise version of the history of pluralism in Judaism during the biblical era, the Hellenistic period, the influence of the Talmudic "culture of dispute" and the asking of new questions, the influence of the secularization process on Judaism, the assimilation of Jews in foreign cultures, and the formation of Israeli culture.
