THE SOCIAL STATUS OF DIASPORA SYNAGOGUES IN THE GRAECO-ROMAN PERIOD

Palavras-chave: período greco-romano, associações, grupos de Cristo, diáspora, judaísmo do Segundo Templo

Resumo

O povo judeu passou por altos e baixos ao longo de sua história no mundo antigo. A tentativa de salvaguardar sua identidade, cultura e leis nem sempre foi uma tarefa fácil. Esta pesquisa pretende analisar a vida social dos “judeanos” da Diáspora e como eles reagiram ao mundo gentio ao seu redor. Quais são os paralelos entre as sinagogas da diáspora e os “grupos de Cristo” do cristianismo primitivo? A estrutura social deles compartilha da mesma natureza? Que impressões os gentios tiveram sobre as etnias judaicas? Essas são algumas das questões que este trabalho pretende investigar.
