Chapter Summary

This section of the book The Ancient Synagogue from its Origins to 200 C.E. presents the heading "Indices". It contains no content. It is followed by a list of sources, list of subject and names and synagogue terms. Ancient synagogues, the institutional matrixes in which two world religions were born, have been discussed and debated by scholars of Early Judaism and Christianity since modern historical research entered the world of academics around the 16th century. As the Roman Empire gradually transformed itself into a (non-Jewish) Christian mono-religious culture, such unsympathetic and totalising discourses of distance and contempt travelled from the political margins to the centre and eventually became mainstream.

Keywords: ancient synagogues; early Judaism; Roman empire
