Engaging Rome and Jerusalem: historical essays for our time

Edwin Judge (Editor), Stuart Piggin (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited Book/Anthology


The Western soul is not at peace with itself. Edwin Judge, a leading Australian historian and mesmerising teacher, diagnoses the angst and contradictions in modern civilisation in terms of the unresolved tension between Classical and biblical thought. This volume includes forty of Judge's more popular writings and public lectures. They address the issues of today, such as political conflict, democracy, education, public and private school funding, the role of the university, marriage and the family, women in the Church, values and multiculturalism, the meaning of history and the historical authenticity of the Bible. This collection represents a lifetime of scholarship devoted to making ancient history modern.
