Sylvie Honigman on 1 & 2 Maccabees

In three videos for Ancient Jew Review, published March 24, 2016, Dr. Sylvie Honigman (Tel Aviv University) discusses her book, Tales of High Priests and Taxes (University of California Press, 2014).

The book focuses on the use of narrative patterns in 1 & 2 Maccabees to reconstruct the story. Our hour-long interview has been condensed into three segments: on the use of narrative patterns, how to read the Maccabees, and the meaning of ioudaismos/hellenismos.
