This century, thus, marks the summit of collision between the two religions. Although Judaism is still dominant in some parts of the country such as southern Judah and the Galilee, still, with the intervention of the imperial institutions restrictions on the Jews, which resulted in revolt, serious earthquake all this will be dealt with in the course.
