Summary In The Herods, Bruce Chilton sets out the full sweep of Herodian rule, from the time of Herod the Great's father, Antipater, until the dynastic sunset, when Emperor Titus attempted to marry Bereniké, Herod's great-granddaughter. Throughout, the narrative brings out the theocratic aims that motivated Herod and his progeny, their competitors, Roman rulers, and the many different groups and factions within Judaism and Christianity that often defined themselves in opposition to the Herodian project
