Romans Destroy the Temple at Jerusalem, 70 AD

http://www.eyewitnesstohistory.com/jewishtemple.htm

Rating: 2, High!

Description: In the year 66 AD the Jews of Judea rebelled against their Roman masters. In response, the Emperor Nero dispatched an army under the generalship of Vespasian to restore order. By the year 68, resistance in the northern part of the province had been eradicated and the Romans turned their full attention to the subjugation of Jerusalem. The Roman legions surrounded the city and began to slowly squeeze the life out of the Jewish stronghold. By the year 70, the attackers had breached Jerusalem's outer walls and began a systematic ransacking of the city. The assault culminated in the burning and destruction of the Temple that served as the center of Judaism. This is the first-hand account of the Roman assault on the Temple from the Jewish historian Josephus Flavius. Standards 6.3.5 and 6.6.5
