A significant religious community in New Testament times, Samaritans continue to live and practice their religion in Israel and Palestine to the present day. This accessible introduction offers fresh translations of the most important and least available portions of Samaritan sacred literature, including major historical works, liturgies, theological compositions, and samplings of Samaritan astronomical and amulet texts. A bibliography offers additional resources for study. Tradition Kept is an effective companion to the authors' history of the Samaritans, The Keepers.
