Flavius Josephus, historian, Pharisee, priest, rebel and traitor, was proud to say that he fought against Rome. Josephus is not closed to the value of freedom as independence from foreign hegemony, nor is he deaf to hopes of the restoration of Jewish freedom. By meditating on Josephus, with principal attention to his retelling of the Bible and post-Biblical Jewish history in the Antiquities, I will explore the complex dialectic Josephus presents of freedom and empire, for both Jews and Romans.
