I've been attempting to study religion more as a way to understand history better. This lecture offers a fascinating view of the beliefs of a very specific religious group in fairly tight window of time. It really is a good reminder that the beliefs of a people are inextricably tied up with both their history and their view of their own history and their then current events. As a Christian it is also a fascinating look at views of one three major Jewish religious orders at roughly the time of Jesus.
