This chapter focuses on Samaritan history in late antiquity. Topics covered include the road to rebellion against Christianity, the conflict between Palestinian Christian orthodoxy backed by Constantinople and Samaritanism, the Samaritan ‘revolt’ of 529, and Samaritans' opposition against Jews. It argues that the discourse of recalcitrance and resistance that characterized Samaritans in late antiquity was caught between two reefs. On one side ranged a repetition of governmental legal statements that disadvantaged and condemned; on the other stood the uniqueness that Judaism assumed vis-à-vis Samaritanism.
