Arms, Men and Society in Roman Judaea

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Guy D. Stiebel provides an in-depth study of Roman weaponry as used in Judaea from the arrival of the Romans in the area in around 63 BCE until the time of the Bar Kochba Revolt (135/136 CE).

The work is split into three parts. The first addresses Roman militaria and provides a study of the types of weapon used, how they were produced, and stored, and examines the sources available for the study of weaponry in the region and period. Part two looks at how the types of weapon marked identity and at how they carried symbolic meanings which developed over time. Finally, the third part of the book examines how the Romans dealt with the aftermath of conflict and reused and reshaped the ruins of the areas they had conquered.
