  1. Zealotry

    Zealotry was originally a political movement in 1st century Second Temple Judaism which sought to incite the people of Judaea Province to rebel against the Roman Empire and expel it from the Holy Land by force of arms, most notably during the Great Jewish Revolt. Zealotry was described by Josephus as one of the "four sects" at this time.
