The Rise of the Maccabean State

Andrea M. Berlin, PhD

December 2

New archaeological evidence illuminates details of the establishment of an independent Jewish polity in the late second century B.C.E. — a time when strong imperial powers to the north and south sought control over this territory for themselves. Material remains reveal on-the-ground realities and show us where, when, and how native rule emerged.


Lunch & Learn is a weekly program, every Thursday from 12:30 – 1:30 pm. The Lunch & Learn program is generously sponsored by Rita Edelston.
