Dear Friends,
             the word hellenistic is a concept, a modern concept for the 
historical and cultural period of the ancient history after Alexander the Great; 
is was constructed  in the Germany of XIX Century on the reality of Jewish- Greek 
culture in the age of Luke (Ac. 6,1 etc.).

For the history of this construction the best book is:

CANFORA, L., Ellenismo - Roma, Ed. Laterza, 1995 (in italian!).
