(The first book in the Josephus series)
A novel by

Thruout his career Feuchtwanger was drawn to the theme of Jewishness. In his Josephus Trilogy (Josephus, 1932; The Jew of Rome, 1935; & Josephus & the Emperor, or The Day Will Come, 1942) he deals with the theme of nationalism versus cosmopolitanism by describing the development of Flavius Josephus, a Jewish historian of the first century. Toward the his life's end he took up the theme by writing about Raquel, the Jewess of Toledo (1955), who for seven years prevented Alfonso VIII of Castile from warring against the Moors. In Jefta & His Daughter (1957) he wrote about a man from the Hebrew bible who kept an oath to god by sacrificing his daughter.
