Religion and Culture of the Adomian King Herod in Palestine 40-4 B.C. (in Arabic).

Auther : Adnan Abu Dayyah

This research paper deals with the religious and cultural background of Herod the Edomite in Palestine during 40-4 B.C. Some historians like Josephus mention in his books (The Jewish War 1,9: 13: Jewish Antiquities. 13,14: 15) that Edomites became Jews after  Herod's conquest established an Hashmonians in the south of Palestine. Nevertheless, scientific, historical and archaeological research reveals that Herod was a pagan, not a Jew. In addition, Herod's cultural background was highly influenced by Hellenistic and Roman cultural aspects.
Much evidence can prove the aforementioned ideas. First of all, Herod faced rejection from the Jews when he did not implement Jewish legislation. Secondly, he had a negative policy aimed at the Jews. Finally, Herod established an architectural scene that especially included pagan temples in many cities and sites in Palestine as well as temples in Edom.
