Soldados de la Hermandad. 1490

48 CE: Roman troops stand guard on the roof of the Temple portico to prevent rioting among the crowds assembled for Passover. One of the soldiers moons the Jews, and the infuriated crowd riots. 30,000 people are trampled to death in the ensuing violence.

41 CE: At Rome, Herod Agrippa serves as a mediator between his friend Claudius and the Senate. The Senate vows to take military action against Claudius, but the army has chosen him as their new emperor. Here, the soldiers show their support for Claudius.

70 CE: Romans soldiers are trapped in the Temple portico by a Jewish ruse. Longus, a young Roman, kills himself rather than damage his reputatation. The illustration, not of ""Longus"" but of a woman, is evidently intended as a generic depiction of suicide.

28 CE: Pilate has set up effigies of the emperor Tiberius throughout Jerusalem. The Jews implore him to remove the statues and offer their necks to the sword, saying that they would rather die than transgress their ancient law. 28 CE: The Jews are infuriated by Pilate's plan to use the assets of the Temple treasury for the construction of a fifty-mile aqueduct. They surround his entourage when he visits Jerusalem, but soldiers in plain clothes, planted in the crowd, cudgel some of the protesters to death.

66 CE: Cestius, Roman governor of Syria, decides to enter the conflict with the Jews. He sends a detachment to Joppa (Jaffa), where his soldiers burn the city, killing 8,400.

66 CE: Florus, procurator of Judea, is indifferent to the Jews' pleas to stop his pillaging. He hands over Jerusalem to his soldiers for plunder and massacre; about 3,600 are killed.

67 CE: Three Roman soldiers undermine the tower of Gamala and cause it to collapse. Confounded by the crash, the inhabitants of the town take flight.

69 CE: Vespasian's soldiers urge him to seize the crown from the emperor Vitellius. Use of this illustration of a mother and child may be intended as a metaphor for the soldiers' devotion and support.

67 CE: Vespasian's soldiers scale the walls of Jotapata and engage in hand-to-hand fighting with the Jews on the gangways.

67 CE: Hearing of an impending revolt in Tiberias, Josephus reaches the town at daybreak and attempts to address the assembled Tiberians. John of Giscala sends soldiers to kill him, but Josephus flees to the lakeshore and, jumping into a boat moored there, makes his escape.
