Judaism in the Roman Empire

Finally found some decent work on the place of Judaism in the Roman Empire - not as part of the usual tale of Christians and Jews - but from the point of view of Judaism itself and the degree of social integration with both pagans and Christians - 'The Jews among Pagans and Christians in the Roman Empire' "Lieu, North and Rajak, Routledge, 1992  - the chapters are derived from seminars held at the Institute of Classical Studies in London.  I am mining some interesting nuggets on ordinary believers, which is my principle research interest.
