Alexander was succeeded by his widow, Salome Alexandra,

Post by jancancook on Thu Mar 24, 2011 2:51 am

Alexander was succeeded by his widow, Salome Alexandra, whose brother was Shimon ben Shetach, a leading Pharisee. Josephus attests that Salome Alexandra was very favorably inclined toward the Pharisees and that their political influence grew tremendously under her reign, especially in the institution known as the Sanhedrin.

Upon her death her elder son Hyrcanus sought Pharisee support, and her younger son, Aristobulus, sought the support of the Sadducees. Josephus reports only one specific conflict between the Pharisees and Hyrcanus.[15] Essentially, criticism of Hyrcanusí roles as High Priest and ethnarch by the Pharisees led to conflict.[16] This culminated in a civil war that ended when the Roman general Pompey intervened, and captured Jerusalem in 63 BCE.
