Did you know that Herod the Great was actually an Arab? He wasn’t even allowed to enter the temple he build.

why did they build such a big temple?

Are you sure? That would explain the Biblical topic of choice.

I did not know that. I read Josephus Flavius' Antiquities but most of it is just a blur now.
I think the word Arab might be kinda anachronistic, no? What was his ethnicity? Something local? Or came from the peninsula somewhere?

Judea was a rich province. Well the whole east was that. And monumental construction was the bread and butter of antiquity.

Well, Wikipee says he was a Nabatean from Edom. But his ancestors converted to Judaism, basically a proselyte.

Why though?

They were probably bored and decided to make it one day.

I watched BBC documentary and they said that he wasn't allowed to enter the temple.

Is Rome good? I tried to watch it but coulnd't because of sex scenes.

Bernd 12/02/2020 (Wed) 05:01:56 [Preview] No.41267 del
its not very historically accurate

I give it 5/10

>but coulnd't because of sex scenes.
Which is not inaccurate, but fast forwarding past boring scenes has been a tool of ours for decades.
Anyway, for a different approach, you might look up the series "I, Claudius." Freely available on youtube last I checked, with minimal passing nudity, maximal nastiness, and an appearance by yet another Herod.
Otherwise, for flavor, you might also try reading pic related, although the period Vidal covers is long afterward.

They hoped to heal. Also they probably begged for alms.

Gonna check it out.

>is that the same herod
Will depend on the timeline

Try Caligula. :^) Maybe Life of Blian.
Read Josephus. It's basically the Old Testament and then some. I remember something about the Jewish guerillas (sicarios), turns out Life of Blian is historically very accurate in the question.

I want a movie without sex please.

What's the point of sex scenes in movies anyway?

That depends. In Caligula, that's the main plot, me thinks.
Maybe it caters to the voyeuristic nature of people, and/or maybe movie makers exploit this curiosity.
This might be related to the gossipy nature as well. People like to know stuff about other people, and talk about these stuff. And they would gossip about everything they saw or heard, all the aspects of others' life. Sex is part of that.
And while we at life and what it covers, artists deal in the aspects of life, especially with those which involve emotion and/or desire, and a subset of this is sex.
As previous commenter above somewhere said, you can jump over those, fast forward and that's it.
