    This book presents in translation of the most revealingdocuments that have survived on stone and papyrus from theHellenistic period. Presents over sources in translation. Captures the political, social, economic and religious dynamismof the Hellenistic kingdoms and cities/5(5). Diversity: Hellenistic Culture was a mixture of Greek, Egyptian, Persian and Indian Cultures. Curiosity: Hellenistic scientists and philosophers attempted to answer questions about the universe and the purpose and meaning of life. Love of Knowledge: The first true research library was established at Alexandria.

    The central part of the book is a detailed discussion of the Hellenistic palaces themselves (). Divided between the major Hellenistic dynasties (those in Makedonia, Pergamon, and Judaea, and the Seleukid and Ptolemaic dynasties), 20 palaces are examined, from Aigai, Pella, and Demetrios to Alexandria and those of Herod the Great. This book is an interpretative history of Greek art during the Hellenistic period - i.e. from the death of Alexander the Great in BC, to the establishment of the Roman Empire at the end of the first century BC - which also explores ways in which that art is an expression of the cultural experience and aspirations of the Hellenistic age.

    The author compares the Hasmonean palaces to other Hellenistic palaces – especially the Herodian palaces. Finally, the concluding chapter integrates the previous findings into a new understanding of and appreciation for the Hasmoneans’ creation of an innovative Jewish corporal identity, one whose echoes we can still hear today.
