Religious Dissent in the Roman Empire is the third installment in Vasily Rudicha€™s trilogy on the psychology of discontent in the Roman Empire at the time of Nero. Unlike his earlier books, it deals not with political dissidence, but with religious dissent, especially in its violent form. Against the broad background of Second Temple Judaism and Judaeaa€™s history under Romea€™s rule, Rudich discusses various manifestations of religious dissent as distinct from the mainstream beliefs and directed against both the foreign occupier and the priestly establishment. This book offers the methodological framework for the analysis of the religious dissent mindset, which it considers a recurrent historical phenomenon that may play a major role in different periods and cultures. In this respect, its findings are also relevant to the rise of religious violence in the world today and provide further insights into its persistent motives and paradigms. Religious Dissent in the Roman Empire is an important study for people interested in Roman and Jewish history, religious psychology and religious extremism, cultural interaction and the roots of violence.Violence in Judaea at the Time of Nero Vasily Rudich ... 169, 284, 326; as a#39;new superstitiona#39; 8a€“9; persecution by Nero 8a€“9, 56, 148a€“49 Chronicles 53 a#39;Church triumphanta#39; 326 circumcision 21, ...
