Using literary, archeological, numismatic and epigraphic evidence, Monika Bernett examines the form and the effects of the imperial cult in Judea under the Herodians and the Romans.
Using literary, archeological, numismatic and epigraphic evidence, Monika Bernett examines the form and the effects of the imperial cult in Judea under the Herodians and the Romans. King Herod established the imperial cult early on as part of a new style of Jewish rule. The endowments for buildings and the founding of cities, which were related to the imperial cult, were part of a multifunctional network of relationships: public responses to the »good deeds« of the princeps, publicizing the good relationship to Rome as well as acting as a sovereign euerget, who might expect goodwill. The author also demonstrates why the imperial cult must be seen as a point of reference for the increasingly radical criticism of the Roman rule and why it must be included in the history of the Jewish revolt.
