The New Testament makes reference to the Samaritans six times. But who are these people? What do they believe? How has their culture changed over the centuries? Discover what the Samaritans bring, historically and contemporarily, to Second Temple Judaic, Pentateuchal, and Semitic studies. The Samaritan Studies Collection focuses on this small, oft-neglected community’s history, survival, and historical works. Authors Robert T. Anderson and Terry Giles provide insight on the Samaritans’ culture and religion, examining the many conflicts between the Samaritans and Jews, Christians, and Muslims. They analyze Samaritan sacred literature, including historical works, liturgies, theological compositions, and more.
