Hermeneia: 2 Maccabees: A Critical Commentary


Fortress Press 2012

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The second-century BC Maccabean revolt against Seleucid oppression was a watershed event in early Jewish history and 2 Maccabees is an important testimony to the revolt and its aftermath. Robert Doran’s commentary on 2 Maccabees explores the interplay between history and historiography in the document. Providing detailed philological analysis of the elegant Greek of the text, Doran carefully sifts the evidence for the historicity of the events recounted, while giving full attention to the literary and rhetorical qualities that mark this dramatic narrative.
