Against the backdrop of Eretz Yisrael after the destruction of the Holy Temple, this vivid account portrays the life of Rabbi Akiva as he rose from humble shepherd to great Sage and leader of his generation. The Talmud and Midrash were prime sources for this colorful portrayal, one of the best loved of the many carefully researched, inspiring historical novels that Rabbi Lehmann wrote about Jewish heroes of times past.

Akiva was originally published in 1881, in Mainz, Germany, as part of the author's German language weekly newsletter, Der Israelit. It was serialized and each week another chapter, steeped with the words of our Sages, and the glory of our history, was mailed to local and international subscribers.

This newly translated, revised edition will enhance the enjoyment of a new generation of readers.
