Overview

Breaking Monotheism makes the case that monotheism is a product of a contest for land and authority. Using the Persian province Yehud as its primary case study, Cataldo anlayzes the interaction between religion and the social-political body in several important areas: power relations in the province, land as private property and its economic impact, political structure and the “rule of law,” monotheistic religious identity in Palestine and its tendency toward “cultural” exclusion, and social group formation in the midst of conflict. This work develops a model through which to better understand the structural formations of later monotheistic religions.
