Abstract

This article surveys the evidence, both literary and archaeological, for a Samaritan diaspora from the third century B.C.E. till the seventh century C.E. It stresses the importance of distinguishing between Samarians (inhabitants of Samaria) and Samaritans (members of the Samaritan religious community) and concludes that there must have been a very considerable Samaritan diaspora in late antiquity, in spite of the fact that many pieces of evidence that have been adduced by other scholars can no longer be used as such in view of the necessary distinction between Samarians and Samaritans.
