520    In modern times, various Jewish groups have argued whether
       Jewishness is a function of ethnicity (membership in a 
       descent group, a function of birth), nationality 
       (citizenship in a state, a function of politics), religion
       (membership in a group characterized by various beliefs 
       and practices), or all three. These fundamental 
       conceptions were already in place in antiquity; the 
       peculiar combination of ethnicity, nationality, and 
       religion that would characterize Jewishness through the 
       centuries first took shape in the second century B.C.E. 
       This book studies the ways in which these elements were 
       understood and applied in the construction of Jewish 
       identity - by Jews, by gentiles and by the state - in such
       a way that the question "Who was a Jew?" could be 
       variously answered.
