My paper will analyse the role played by Judaism and its purity legislation in the charges levelled against Christians in Julian’s ‘Against the Galileans’. I will focus on two main strands of Julian’s argument: the similarity between Hellenism and Judaism, as perceived by Julian, and the impurity of the Christians resulting from their refusal of Jewish sacrificial practice and dietary regulations. Against a widespread view, I will argue firstly: that Judaism plays essentially a polemical role in Julian’s definition of boundaries between Christians and Hellenes; and secondly that although Neoplatonic influence, in the matter of sacrifice and purity, can neither be denied nor underestimated in Julian, Neoplatonism only supplies the intellectual-philosophical justification, and not the source, for ancient cultic practices shunned by ‘Christian atheists’. Finally, I will suggest that contrary to a leading opinion, as recently expressed by Guy Stroumsa in his La fin du sacrifice, defilement and purity in Late Antiquity should not be considered only in terms of a spiritual condition, but also in political and cultic terms.
