What modern scholars have been too willing to dismiss as a scattershot collection of unrelated annals, is, Bredehoft argues, a tool created to forge, through linking literature and history, a patriotic Anglo Saxon national identity.

"Rarely does a reviewer or publisher encounter a milestone: this is it. It is the first major study of the development of Chinese feminism in what is arguably the most formative period in the history of modern China. In its women-centered approach, the book challenges the official women's history authored by the Chinese Communist Party and long accepted by Euro-American scholars. This book will set the agenda for future scholars researching the relationship between feminism and nationalism in China."—Dorothy Ko, author of Teachers of the Inner Chambers

Die kritische Neuedition (Editio Critica Maior) der Johannesapokalypse konfrontiert die Herausgeber mit einer ebenso außergewöhnlichen wie faszinierenden Textüberlieferung. Im Diskurs mit der zum Teil nicht unproblematischen Editions- und Forschungsgeschichte sind umfangreiche textkritische und textgeschichtliche Untersuchungen als Vorbedingung für die anstehende Textkonstitution unumgänglich. Der Sammelband dokumentiert in insgesamt 13 Einzelbeiträgen die laufenden Arbeiten an der Editio Critica Maior der Johannesapokalypse und stellt einem textkritisch wie theologisch interessierten Publikum wichtige aktuelle Ergebnisse aus der aktuellen Arbeit vor. Neben Analysen zum griechischen Text beinhaltet der Band neue kritische Editionen der sahidischen und der syrischen (genauerhin harklensischen) Version sowie weitere Untersuchungen zur äthiopischen, koptischen und lateinischen Überlieferung der Johannesapokalypse. Beiträge zur Scholien-Kommentierung und zur Kunstgeschichte öffnen die engere textkritische Sichtweise hin zur weiteren Rezeptionsgeschichte dieses geistesgeschichtlich wirkungsmächtigen Werkes.

Die beiden ersten Beitrage gelten der Textgeschichte des Buchs Deuteronomium: a) Wevers analysiert als Supplement zu seiner Text History of the Greek Deuteronomy (MSU XIII) den Charakter des Byzantinischen Textes, der in der gemeinsamen Uberlieferung der drei Textfamilien d, n und t zu suchen ist; b) Fraenkel untersucht die n-Gruppe, die in der Vergangenheit haufig mit der lukianischen Rezension in Verbindung gebracht wurde. Der Beitrag konzentriert sich auf den Einfluss der hexaplarischen Rezension auf den Text der n-Gruppe.Im dritten Beitrag untersucht Wevers den hexaplarischen Einfluss auf den lukianischen Text im Buch Ezechiel; im Besonderen geht es um den moglichen Einfluss der Ubersetzung des Symmachus.

Studies in the Textual History of Early Rabbinic Liturgy

Author: Stefan C. Reif

Publisher: Walter de Gruyter

ISBN: 3110895382

Category: Religion

Page: 378

View: 8653

Much of the primary research summarized here relates to Cambridge Genizah manuscripts, a thousand-year-old source that testifies to liturgical (as well, of course, as non-liturgical) developments that greatly predate other source material. When the research is concerned with pre-Genizah history, the Genizah evidence is also relevant since the historian of religious ideas must ultimately decide how to date, characterize, and conceptualize its contents and how to explain where they vary significantly from what became, or is regarded (rightly or wrongly) as having become, the standard rabbinic liturgy sanctioned by the Iraqi Jewish authorities from the ninth to the eleventh century.

The Text of Genesis 1-11

Textual Studies and Critical Edition

Author: Ronald S. Hendel

Publisher: Oxford University Press on Demand

ISBN: 0195119614

Category: Religion

Page: 168

View: 9375

Ronald S. Hendel offers a careful and thorough re examination of the text of Genesis 1 11. He takes a strongly positive position on the value of the Septuagint as a reliable translation of its Hebrew parent text. This position is contrary to that taken in most existing studies of the text of Genesis, including some in standard editions and reference works. Nevertheless, Hendel shows, there is an accumulating mass of evidence indicating that his position is correct.Hendel begins with a discussion of theory and method, and points out the lessons to be learned from the new biblical manuscripts discovered at Qumran. He goes on to argue for the preparation of eclectic critical editions of books of the Hebrew Bible a task long pursued in Classical, New Testament, and Septuagint studies, but still highly controversial with respect to the Hebrew scriptures. The critical edition of Genesis 1 11 which follows is Hendel's first step toward such a comprehensive task.

The Nay Science

A History of German Indology

Author: Vishwa Adluri,Joydeep Bagchee

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199931356

Category: Religion

Page: 384

View: 3211

The Nay Science offers a new perspective on the problem of scientific method in the human sciences. Taking German Indological scholarship on the Mahabharata and the Bhagavadgita as their example, Adluri and Bagchee develop a critique of the modern valorization of method over truth in the humanities. The authors show how, from its origins in eighteenth-century Neo-Protestantism onwards, the critical method was used as a way of making theological claims against rival philosophical and/or religious traditions. Via discussions of German Romanticism, the pantheism controversy, scientific positivism, and empiricism, they show how theological concerns dominated German scholarship on the Indian texts. Indology functions as a test case for wider concerns: the rise of historicism, the displacement of philosophical concerns from thinking, and the belief in the ability of a technical method to produce truth. Based on the historical evidence of the first part of the book, Adluri and Bagchee make a case in the second part for going beyond both the critical pretensions of modern academic scholarship and the objections of its post-structuralist or post-Orientalist critics. By contrasting German Indology with Plato's concern for virtue and Gandhi's focus on praxis, the authors argue for a conception of the humanities as a dialogue between the ancients and moderns and between eastern and western cultures.

Sometime in the first quarter of the 13th century a number of works were written for anchoresses, women who lived as religious recluses in cells adjoining churches. The most influential is Ancrene Wisse (A Guide for Anchoresses), which discusses in great detail the daily life of the anchoress, both outer and inner. This work gives a detailed sense of a powerful and multi-faceted spirituality different from that of other mystics.

King Arthur's Modern Return

Author: Debra N. Mancoff

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 131771413X

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 264

The Arthurian legend closes with a promise: On a distant day, when his country calls, the king will return. His lost realm will be regained, and his shattered dream of an ideal world will, at last, be realized. This collection of original essays explores the issue of return in the modern Arthurian legend. With an Introduction by noted scholar Raymond H. Thompson and 13 essays by authors from the fields of literature, art history, film history, and folklore, this collection reveals the flexibility of the legend. Just as the modern legend takes the form current to its generation, the myth of return generates a new legend with each telling. As these authors show, return can come in the form of a noble king or a Caribbean immigrant, with the mystery of an art theft or a dying boy's dream.
