Review quote

'up-to-date, well-illustrated, extensively-referenced, and covers a diverse range of material aspects of [Caesarea]. ... a detailed, informative account on one of the most extensively studies cities of the Eastern Mediterranean.[...] good and easily accessible overview on current investigations[...] on Roman-Byzantine Caesarea.' Rick Bonnie, Journal for the Study of Judaism 44 (2013) 'The book deals, sometimes in meticulous detail, with the civic places where Caesarea's heterogeneous inhabitants-Jews, Christians of various leaning, and polytheists-interacted. Especially interesting are articles analyzing the many transformations of the city's material fabric in the wake of political and religious upheavals.[...]This volume is beyond the reach of most individuals,[...] but serious academic libraries should acquire it.' Felipe Rojas, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2012.12.21
