Author(s): FELDMAN, Louis H.

Volume: 148 Issue: 3-4 Date: juillet-décembre 1989
The new inscriptions from Aphrodisias, in conjunction with inscriptions from Sardis and other cities in Asia Minor, writings of pagans and Church Fathers, the canons of Church Councils, and imperial laws, establish that Judaism, far from being dead in the third century in Asia Minor, as if it had been superseded by Christianity, was quite obviously counterattacking and with considerable success, particularly in winning 'G-d-fearers', sympathizers with Judaism who observed certain practices of Judaism.
