Chapter Summary

Leading experts in Herodian and Augustan studies from across the globe were brought together under the auspices of the Institute of Jewish Studies (IJS) to present the results of their research and also to engage in a constructive encounter, during the three days of the Herod and Augustus Conference held at University College London, from 21 to 23 June, 2005. Through ongoing research efforts, fresh insights have been gained on developments in the cultural sphere that were fostered by the Principate of Augustus, and its reciprocal relationship with client monarchies, among which Herods Judaea occupies a prominent place. Herods political and cultural policies come together in his foundation and building of Caesarea Maritima, with its enormous artificial harbour constructed of Roman hydraulic concrete, and the magnificent temple dedicated to Roma and Augustus that overlooked it.
