The End of Sacrifice by Guy G. Stroumsa

The End of Sacrifice

Description : This work points to the role of Judaism, particularly its inventions of new religious life following the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. The end of animal sacrifice gave rise to new forms of worship, with a concern for personal salvation, scriptural study, and rituals like praying.
