Tittel

The origins of the Samaritans and the construction of their temple on Mount Gerizim according to Josephus

Sammendrag

Josephus would not give a high age for the temple of a group he dislikes, and he attributes the license to build the temple to an ambiguous figure in the eyes of Rome, Alexander the Greek, and its destruction to his hero, John Hyrcanus. The temple is not termed illegitimate, but its origin is highly dubious. Its destruction at the hands of one of Josephus¿ heroes, Hyrcanus, functions as an act of piety and valour. Its short, 200-year existence may be supposed to be due to an unlawful origin and unclean priesthood. If the temple was in fact from an earlier age than that of Alexander, it existed at the time of the Wadi Daliyeh-papyri and bullae, and one element in the Cross-Purvis-theory would be unfounded, namely that the temple was constructed by disenfranchised nobility from Samaria after the hellenization of that city at the hands of Alexander.
