<<< 02.16.2016 >>>> ALL ANTISEMITEES WILL COME UP WITH RATIONAL REASONS FOR ANTI SEMITISM, BUT THAT IS NOT THE MAIN MOTIVATOR: IT IS ACTUALLY VERY EMOTIONAL Monday, February 15, 2016 12:01 PM Augustus: the 1st great emperor of Rome called for PaxRomana peace in the empire so the Romans were pretty fair and tolerant of other people: they were synchronistic allowed more than one RELIGION to intermix Roman /Jewish problem: not able to do that, because not all of the Jews were ASSIMILATIONISTS: got along with other people and integrated into culture appease the Romans A power relationship existed between Roman and Jews and Romans were first. Assimilationists in order to be able to work peacefully with Romans had to 1) pay taxes, 2) couldn't rebel against Emperor There was a problem distinguishing Religion and Politics in the Ancient World: who's the most powerful? Jews who did not appease were REBELS (lower class priests Maccabees) . What were they rebelling against? in favor of traditions, of a pure/"original" Judaism get rid of the tyranny of the foreigner ruling them The 'fundamentalists" don't like Greeks, Romans or their own who ally themselves with foreigners (assimilationists) The reason was the actions against the Jews were not seen as antiSemitic by Cohen and Berger was that the things the Romans did to the Jews was not unique to the Jews (Schaefer wants to know what is specific about the Jews that everyone hates them?) Why wasn’t what happened in the Ancient world considered antiSemitism to Berger and Cohen Christianity Is still around: it's still relevant to them there is a person/ thing to hate the Jewish memory of Christianity is much more alive, who cares if the ancients did not like the Jews and Christianity is closer to Jews Common thought is that that Christianity systematized antiJewish behavior Schaefer's whole point is that it started in Egypt Mediterranean/ Alexandria (38 41 B.C.) Elephantine 410 B.C. Jews that lived there were very assimilated did not observe a lot of Jewish traditions, but did observe Passover Egyptian destruction of the Temple by the priests IN BOTH INCIDENTS THE JEWS are caught in the middle: ruling class taking the Jews side In Elephantine: Jews allied with Persian elite In Alexandria: Jews allied with Romans ( Greeks fight with Jews about citizenship and one of the major points they bring up is the lack of reverence of the Jews towards thee Roman emperor) WHY DO THE EGYPTIANS STIL CARE ABOUT JEWISH EXODUS? Written record existed There is a tradition to hate the Jews
