Daniel R. Schwartz

Daniel R. Schwartz is the Herbst Family Professor of Judaic Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He specializes in ancient Jewish history. He was drawn into this project on a nineteenth-century medievalist apropos of his study of Heinrich Graetz’s changing views on the Jews of antiquity in general, and on Flavius Josephus in particular, between the second (1863) and third (1878) editions of the third volume of Graetz’s Geschichte der Juden.
