This book deals with the Jewish High Priesthood between 301-152 BCE. It is of a historical-biblical-theological nature - historical, in as much as it refers to a chronological period and to the historiographic sources, and, biblical and theological ...
because it questions a Biblical institution, its meaning and its religious function. The high priesthood's history is analysed on the basis of few and conflicting documents, starting from the question of power and the autonomy of the high priests under the rule of the Ptolemies and the Seleucids. However, the historical reconstruction is strongly determined by the political ideology and theological vision of the available sources on this subject.
