"Hannah M. Cotton's collected papers focus on questions that have fascinated her for over four decades regarding the concrete relationships between law, language, administration, and everday life in the ancient Roman world, and in Judaea and Nabataea-Arabia in particular. Many of the papers, especially those devoted to the Judaean Desert documents of the 2nd century CE, have been widely cited. Together, they look at the texture of life, seeking to provide tentative answers to historical questions and interpretations by paying close attention to the details of literary and especially documentary evidence. This collection illuminates fundamental, often legal, questions concerning daily life and the exercise of Roman rule and administration in the early imperial period, which shaped life as it was lived in the province and the period where Roman and Jewish history fatefully intersected."-- Provided by publisher
