    Images and Monuments of Near Eastern Dynasts, 100 BC - AD 100
    Andreas J. M. Kropp

    Just got this today, upon first glance first class, just what I am looking for for my research. I have taken the liberty of coping full synopsis, as it is an important work in my opinion, often neglected study.

    Extensive cross-regional coverage
    Applies methods of Classical archaeology to areas so far neglected and traditionally covered by other disciplines
    Full coverage of foreign-language literature (especially French, German, and Italian)
    Fully illustrated throughout
    This book is an archaeological and art-historical study of the images and monuments of Roman 'client' kings in the Near East from the Taurus to Edom (modern South East Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Palestine, and Jordan) in the important transitional period between the downfall of the Seleucid empire and Rome's establishment of provincial administration across the entire region. In this volume, Kropp treats royal portraits, tombs, palaces, coins, and temples as historical documents and aims at uncovering royal identities and ideological aspirations. In particular, he focuses on the six major players: the Kommagenian, Emesan, Ituraean, Nabataean, Hasmonaean, and Herodian dynasties.

    The images and monuments discussed show an endless variety of eclectic styles, shapes, and types - a result of individual, deliberate choices from an array of cultural and artistic options, such as Hellenistic, Roman, and Persian. The study of their origins and importance therefore places monuments, like the Khazneh at Petra or the Temple at Jerusalem, in their proper context and allows a more nuanced understanding of their creation as expressions and constructions of royal personas.

    Also this title came today:
    Temples and Sanctuaries in the Roman East: Religious Architecture in Syria, Iudaea/Palaestina and Provincia Arabia

    Again I have provided synopsis
    This lavishly illustrated volume presents a comprehensive architectural study of 87 individual temples and sanctuaries built in the Roman East between the end of the 1st century BCE and the end of the 3rd century CE, within a broad region encompassing the modern states of Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan. Religious architecture gave faithful expression to the complexity of the Roman East and to its multiplicity of traditions pertaining to ethnic and religious aspects as well as to the powerful influence of Imperial Rome. The source of this power lay in the uniformity of the architectural language, the inventory of forms, the choice of styles and the spatial layout of the buildings. Thus, while temples have an eclectic character, there is an underlying unity of form comprising the podium, the stairway between the terminating walls (antae) and the columns along the entrance front - in other words, the axiality, frontality and symmetry of the temple as viewed from outside.

    A link to a pdf of Judas Maccabaeus: The Jewish Struggle against the Seleucids. I'm not sure about the legality or safety of this online copy, though.

    EDIT: Judging by its home page, it seems the site is dedicated to and about a certain branch of Judaism. Whilst I don't think the link is unsafe or that the text has been tampered with, I'm still not sure if this pdf copy has the approval of the author.

    It is a good book perhaps a link to a, let's say repututable establishment might be required?http://books.google.co.uk/books/abou...AC&redir_esc=y

    On a similar note this is also a good title
    'Tales of High Priests and Taxes
    The Books of the Maccabees and the Judean Rebellion against Antiochos IV'

    In the wake of the conquests of Alexander the Great, the ancient world of the Bible—the ancient Near East—came under Greek rule, and in the land of Israel, time-old traditions and Greek culture met. But with the accession of King Antiochos IV, the soft power of culture was replaced with armed conflict, and soon the Jews rebelled against their imperial masters, as recorded in the Biblical books of the Maccabees. Whereas most scholars have dismissed the biblical accounts of religious persecution and cultural clash, Sylvie Honigman combines subtle literary analysis with deep historical insight to show how their testimony can be reconciled with modern historical analysis by conversing with the biblical authors, so to speak, in their own language to understand the way they described their experiences. Honigman contends that these stories are not mere fantasies but genuine attempts to cope with the massacre that followed the rebellion by giving it new meaning. This reading also discloses fresh political and economic factors.

    I dont know if this would be helpful since it is so specific, and I doubt there can really be alot of new info, but I do plan on purchasing this one when its available. The cover art is amazing, even if the inaccuracy is highly questionable for the time period.

    Images and Ideologies

    Self-definition in the Hellenistic World


    Edited By
    Anthony Bulloch, Erich S. Gruen,
    A. A. Long, and Andrew Stewart
    Preface to book
    The papers in this volume were all delivered in an earlier form at a conference held at the University of California at Berkeley from April 7 to April 9, 1988. The title of the conference was "Images and Ideologies: Self-definition in the Hellenistic World," and it was sponsored by the Departments of Art History, Classics, and History, and by the Graduate Group in Ancient History and Mediterranean Archaeology.
    Our purpose in holding the conference was to provide a context for a dialogue between specialists in the different fields of Hellenistic study, and thereby, we hoped, to open up new perspectives in Hellenistic research. Most of those who attended the conference seemed to agree that we had made a successful beginning, and the lectures and the informal discussions that were to be heard outside the conference hall went far beyond the organizers' modest hopes. Consequently we now offer the formal lectures from the conference in revised, and in many cases expanded, form to a wider public, again in the hope that we may stimulate discussion of some of the key issues across the particular fields of history, literature, philosophy, art, and religion. We are under no illusion that in one meeting, or one volume, we could attempt a new synthesis of Hellenistic culture, but we do hope to have taken some steps in that direction. We decided to choose a theme which would focus on an aspect of Hellenistic culture that cuts across all disciplinary boundaries and is cardinal to them all, and we have sought to capture the individuality, the national and personal identity, the cultural exchange and self-consciousness that have long been sensed as peculiarly potent in the Hellenistic world

    Okay, was just in case anyone needed details, but I suppose they can get that from the link.
    Is it alright if I post a link to this bibliography in my Research Forum?

    Under Divine Auspices
    Divine Ideology and the Visualisation of Imperial Power in the Severan Period
    :http://www.cambridge.org/gb/academic...severan-period
    In this revision of her doctoral thesis, Clare Rowan demonstrates that each of the Severan emperors employed claims of divine patronage to legitimize his position and shape public opinion regarding political, military and social issues. She argues that the Severan emperors justified their reigns with claims of divine support because they lacked prominent ancestors and/or military prowess, the characteristics employed by earlier emperors to secure their principates. For her, Severan claims of divine sponsorship should be seen as a transition in imperial ideology, locating them between 2nd C emperors who advertised their virtues through personifications and associations with a variety of gods, and mid-3rd C emperors who portrayed themselves as comites of the gods. Rowan focuses primarily on numismatic evidence because it offers a unique opportunity in ancient studies, i.e. the ability "to quantify ideology."(4) Her innovative numismatic methodology demonstrates that the emperors employed 'audience targeting,' i.e., "the production of a particular coin series, with a particular message, sent to a particular audience."

    Architecture in the Antonine Age

    Edmund Thomas http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199288632.do
    "Seldom have I read a book containing on the one hand such a broad and extensive overview of Antonine architecture and, on the other, such an abundance of information about selected aspects of the topic ... However, the present book sets new standards for how Antonine architecture should be addressed ... such a well-written book deserves to be read by many scholars, students and interested readers in general." - Rubina Raja, Ancient West & East

    They are very good lectures, I have watched them dozens of times and have come in very useful on a number of papers I have written
