  • Descrição: Jews in eleventh- and twelfth-century Byzantium spoke Greek but did not identify with Hellenic culture. Language cannot be used as the standard by which one defines identity. The Jewish identity in Byzantium was defined by loyalty to the biblical tradition. Christians in Byzantium identified more with the Hellenic tradition than did Jews.
