Josephus on the Samaritans : his Tendenz and purpose

Sammendrag

The picture painted by Josephus of the Samaritans is one of opportunism, of renegade priests and laymen leaving Jerusalem for land and income in Samaria and worshipping at Mount Gerizim. In the overall story of the war between the Jews and the Romans, the Samaritans play the role of an opportunistic and untrustworthy group. The Samaritans' foreign origin is from lands belonging to the Roman enemy, Babylon, and their opportunism stands out against the loyalty of Herod to the Romans (cf. War) and that of the majority of Jews. These were always loyal to common values, Roman and Jewish, and opportunism was evidently against these values. The temple on Mount Gerizim is not termed illegitimate, but its origin is highly dubious.
