The Samaritans: A Biblical People celebrates the culture of the Israelite Samaritans, from biblical times to our own day. An international team of historians, folklorists, a documentary filmmaker and contemporary artists have come together to explore ways that Samaritans, Jews, Christians, and Muslims have interacted, often shunned and always interpreted one another across the expanse of western civilization.
Written for both the general reader and the scholar, The Samaritans: A Biblical People is a centerpiece of the Israelite Samaritans Project of the Yeshiva University Center for Israel Studies. This exquisitely illustrated volume celebrates a traveling exhibition produced jointly with the Museum of the Bible in Washington D.C.
Steven Fine is the Dean Pinkhos Churgin Professor of Jewish History at Yeshiva University. He is the director of the YU Center for Israel Studies and of the Israelite Samaritans Project.
All interested in the Samaritans—their culture, history and their interactions with Jews, Christians and Muslims from biblical times to the present. This exquisitely illustrated volume is written both for the general reader and the scholar.
