This is the first attempt at a book-length history of the Samaritans, throughout the ages, from Old Testament times right down to the present. Along the way it tries to answer such questions as: Are the Samaritans direct descendants of the Northern Tribes of Israel? Does the Samaritan creed derive from post exilic Judaism? How did Samaritanism influence early Christianity? Are the Samaritans also a nation? What are the causes of their survival?
