22495RE: [XTalk] Kee on Synagogues
- Dec 3, 2007Jeffrey:
Also, please see Steven Fine's (ed.) book Jews, Christians, and
Polytheists in the Ancient Synagogue (Routledge, 1999). In particular,
for instance, Peter W. van der Horst ("Was the Synagogue a Place of
Worship before 70 CE?") directly addresses' Kee's conclusions. BTW, he
quoted Ed Sanders on this "Ed Sanders called Kee's article 'remarkably
ill informed'". (and Ed's comment on this is from Jewish Law from Jesus
to the Mishnah -- so add this also to Jeff Peterson's list of
recommended resources. Van der Horst's article is very good, interacts
broadly with other scholars including critics, and will address much of
what you want.
