How did the Ptolemies secure their rule when internal and external crises threatened their kingdom from the end of the third century BC onwards? To find out, Patrick Sänger examines the strategies of the politeuma – a type of association as yet only identified as having existed on Ptolemaic territory which is linked to Jewish and other communities bearing foreign ethnic designations.
How did the Ptolemies secure their rule when internal and external crises threatened their kingdom from the end of the third century BC onwards? To find out, Patrick Sänger examines the strategies of the politeuma – a type of association as yet only identified as having existed on Ptolemaic territory which is linked to Jewish and other communities bearing foreign ethnic designations. The author reveals a particular aspect of Ptolemaic social, legal and administrative policy, and sheds light on a historical situation in which Jews both supported and profited from a political regime.
