The Ancient Jew Review is a non-profit web journal devoted to the study of ancient Judaism. In this respect, AJR incorporates scholarship from a wide range of fields, including Hellenistic, Roman, Sasanian, and Persian history, Biblical Studies, ancient Christianity, Rabbinic Judaism, and the Second Temple period. AJR showcases and curates content from these respective fields. By bringing together scholars across disciplinary lines, we survey the state of the field and promote conversation about future avenues of research.
