Preface to the Revised & Illustrated Edition:

The twin goal of the revision of this paintings has been simplification and amplification.
The language has been recast in elements and there were extra sub-titles inside every one bankruptcy, cross-references and an index. rules reminiscent of "Religion as law," the trademarks of Philo and the advance of Messianism were made so simple as those matters admit of.
In looking illustrations to vivify the narrative it truly is unlucky that so little is on the market. Ah! if we had photographs of Hillel, of Akiba the Martyr, of Judah the Saint, of the Jamnia Academy, of the elegance of the Babylonian Exilarch. yet this very absence of images is in itself just a little Jewish history.

This new illustrated and designed version includes quotations from the literature of the sessions coated, from the Apocrypha, Philo, Josephus and the Mishna. 3 chapters were further, on "Stories and Sayings of the Sages of the Talmud" and one on "Rabbi Judah and his times." different chapters were put in additional logical series. either the Chronological Tables and the Notes are fuller. a brand new function has been brought in a "theme for dialogue" on the shut of every bankruptcy that could be came upon important to check circles and Chautauqua societies. This has additionally been brought within the lately issued "Modern Jewish History."
