Reckless Rites

Purim and the Legacy of Jewish Violence

Author: Elliott S. Horowitz

Historical accounts of Jewish violence--particularly against Christians--have long been explosive material. Some historians have distorted these records for anti-Semitic purposes. Others have discounted, dismissed, or simply ignored the evidence, often for apologetic purposes. In Reckless Rites, Elliott Horowitz takes a new and forthright look at both the history of Jewish violence since late antiquity and the ways in which generations of historians have grappled with that history. In the process, he has written the most wide-ranging book on Jewish violence in any language, and the first to fully acknowledge and address the actual anti-Christian practices that became part of the playful, theatrical violence of the Jewish festival of Purim. He has also examined the different ways in which the book of Esther, upon which the festival is based, was used by Jews and Christians over the centuries--whether as an ancient mirror of modern tribulations or as the scriptural basis for anti-Semitic claims regarding the bloodthirstiness of the Jews. Reckless Rites reassesses the historical interpretation of Jewish violence--from the alleged massacre of thousands of Christians in seventh-century Jerusalem to later medieval attacks on Christian symbols such as the crucifix, transgressions that were often committed in full knowledge that their likely consequence would be death. A book that calls for major changes in the way that Jewish history is written and conceptualized, Reckless Rites will be essential reading for scholars and students of history, religion, and Jewish-Christian relations.

Catalogue of English Bible Translations

A Classified Bibliography of Versions and Editions Including Books, Parts, and Old and New Testament Apocrypha and Apocryphal Books

Author: William J. Chamberlin

Publisher: ABC-CLIO

ISBN: 031328041X

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 898

View: 583

While other "Bible" catalogs are available, this comprehensive reference book is destined to become the standard in the field. Chamberlin's one-volume work traces the publication history of multiple editions of "Bible" translations and offers valuable decriptive annotations. The catalog not only includes complete Bibles, but also Old and New Testaments, partial texts, commentaries that include translations, children's "Bibles," Apocryphal writings, and the "Koran," as well. Other bibliographies are usually limited to editions commonly found in academic libraries, but Chamberlin's guide also includes Bibles found in private collections. Overall, this catalogue contains more than five times as many entries of different English translations as two other "Bible" bibliographies, those by Hill and Herbert, combined. The entries are grouped in 151 categories, and within each category entries are listed in chronological order. The accompanying annotations identify the translator and provide an overview of the contents of each work. The detailed indexes make this bibliography a convenient tool for researchers. Bible scholars, collectors, and rare book dealers will find this catalogue a necessary addition to their libraries.

Strange Wives: The Paradox of Biblical Intermarriage

Author: Stanley Ned Rosenbaum, Ph.D,Rabbi Allen Secher


ISBN: 0986322601

Category: Interfaith marriage in the Bible

Page: 366

View: 5106

Strange Wives: The Paradox of Biblical Intermarriage is an unorthodox look at a controversial subject. It is written in an unconventionally conversational style by a traditionally trained scholar and an ordained rabbi. The book traces the history of attitudes toward "marrying out" and demonstrates that the famous edict of Ezra that Jews divorce their "strange wives" was in fact a departure from earlier assumptions and practice. At the same time, it illuminates the nature of personal relationships and family interactions during the biblical period.

The Search for Ultimate Reality

Intertextuality Between the Genesis and Johannine Prologues

Author: Dan Lioy

Publisher: Peter Lang

ISBN: 9780820481210

Category: Religion

Page: 223

View: 4842

In analyzing the intertextuality between the Genesis and Johannine Prologues, Dr. Lioy maintains that both passages utilize polemical theology to refute distorted views of ultimate reality. Furthermore, he theorizes that the author of the Johannine Prologue deliberately reflected the structure and themes found in the Genesis Prologue to emphasize that the God-man, Jesus Christ, created all things and is a new (spiritual) beginning for all who believe in Him. Ultimate reality is found through faith in the Son.

"... one of those rare edited volumes that advances social thought as it provides substantive religious and media ethnography that is good to think with." -- Dale Eickelman, Dartmouth College Increasingly, Pentecostal, Buddhist, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and indigenous movements all over the world make use of a great variety of modern mass media, both print and electronic. Through religious booklets, radio broadcasts, cassette tapes, television talk-shows, soap operas, and documentary film these movements address multiple publics and offer alternative forms of belonging, often in competition with the postcolonial nation-state. How have new practices of religious mediation transformed the public sphere? How has the adoption of new media impinged on religious experiences and notions of religious authority? Has neo-liberalism engendered a blurring of the boundaries between religion and entertainment? The vivid essays in this interdisciplinary volume combine rich empirical detail with theoretical reflection, offering new perspectives on a variety of media, genres, and religions.

Keine Posaunen vor Jericho

Die archäologische Wahrheit über die Bibel

Author: Israel Finkelstein,Neil Asher Silberman

Publisher: C.H.Beck

ISBN: 3406655394

Category: Bibles

Page: 381

View: 7076

Bisher diente biblische Archäologie zum Beweis der Heiligen Schrift. Die beiden international renommierten Archäologen drehen den Spieß um und lassen die Ausgrabungen eine eigene Sprache sprechen. Ihr dramatisch neues, archäologisch fundiertes Bild von der Geschichte Israels zwingt zum Umdenken. Der Auszug aus Ägypten, die Einnahme Kanaans, das Großreich unter König David und der Tempelbau in Jerusalem unter König Salomon galten lange auch bei den kritischsten Wissenschaftlern als gesichert. Neueste Ausgrabungen, bisher nur Experten bekannt, zeigen ein ganz anderes Bild: " Den Auszug aus Ägypten gab es ebensowenig wie eine "Landnahme". " Jerusalem unter David und Salomon war ein größeres Dorf sicher ohne zentralen Tempel und großen Palast. " Der Monotheismus hat sich viel später entwickelt als bisher angenommen & Das klar und anschaulich geschriebene Buch ist in zwölf Kapitel gegliedert: Auf die Nacherzählung der biblischen Geschichte folgt jeweils die archäologische Spurensuche. Im nächsten Schritt rekonstruieren die Autoren (Israel Finkelstein ist der Direktor des israelischen Instituts Tel Aviv) den tatsächlichen historischen Ablauf, um abschließend zu fragen, wann und warum die Geschichte aufgeschrieben wurde.

Die Ursprünge der jüdischen Mystik

Author: Peter Schäfer

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

ISBN: 3458765301

Category: Religion

Page: 671

View: 1277

Die Geschichte der jüdischen Mystik vor der Kabbala ist erstaunlicherweise bislang noch nicht geschrieben worden. Peter Schäfer füllt mit diesem Buch, das mit seiner gut verständlichen Sprache nicht nur für Spezialisten gedacht ist, die Lücke. Beginnend mit der Thronwagenvision des Propheten Ezechiel reicht der Bogen über die Henochschriften, Qumran, Philo von Alexandrien und die rabbinische Literatur bis zur sogenannten Merkava-Mystik. In genauer und einfühlsamer Lektüre der einschlägigen Texte wird der Frage nachgegangen, was sie uns über die uralte menschliche Sehnsucht vermitteln wollen, Gott nahezukommen. Das Werk bildet die Synthese eines Autors, der sich ein Leben lang mit diesem Thema befaßt hat.
