Period makeups: Biblical characters

Featuring various characters mentioned in the Bible but of varying historicity from Abraham’s wife to Roman times.

Some, like the Queen of Sheba and Delilah, probably had no historical existence – or at least I know of no evidence outside the Bible for their existence – while others, like Salome (who is only mentioned as a daughter of Herodias in the Bible), are independently attested.

Some characters who appear in Biblical stories are more appropriately featured in the Egyptian and Roman sections.
