DOI: 10.1558/equinox.38801


This introduction to Part One explains the decision in this textbook to begin the history of Judaism with the return from exile (and not with Adam and Eve as is commonly done), the history of Christianity with Constantine (and not with Jesus as is commonly done), and the history of Islam in Medina (and not with the birth of Muhammad as is commonly done).
