Summary
Just prior to the rise of Islam, in the sixth century AD, southern Arabia was embroiled in a holy war between Christian Ethiopians and Jewish Arabs. Bowersock offers a narrative account of this fascinating but overlooked chapter in pre-Islamic Arabian history. The extraordinary story told in this book provides an important and much neglected background for the rise of Islam as well as the collapse of the Persian Empire before the Byzantines
