The Mystery of the Book of Revelation. Reenvisioning the End of Time
This work represents an intersection between two important methods of interpretation. It presents a very complex theory of narrative relating to the experience of time and the production and reception of narrative which is applied to the question of the eschatology of the "Book of Revelation". The work argues that John of Patmos had a vision of two ages: one of a world fraught with conflict, violence and oppression and another similarly present for the Christian faithful, in which they experience the salvation expected at the end of the ages, now, gathered under God's protection.

Alcock, J.P.
Daily Life of the Pagan Celts
This book presents an introduction to the daily life of the Celts living in Britain, Ireland and Europe during the Iron Age and into the Roman period. This book reveals that the Celts were not merely a collection of barbaric tribes but that their civilization compared favourably with those of other ancient civilizations. The detail includes political and social groups, domestic and family life, social hierarchies, housing, food, clothing, religion, superstition, mythology and legend, poetry, warfare and warriors, crime and punishment, bog burials and the interaction of this society with Greek and Roman civilization. It includes extracts from Celtic literature and classical literature relating to the Celts.

Amitay, O.
From Alexander to Jesus
Scholars have long recognized the relevance to Christianity of the many stories surrounding the life of Alexander the Great, who claimed to be the son of Zeus. But until now, no comprehensive effort has been made to connect the mythic life and career of Alexander to the stories about Jesus and to the earliest theology of the nascent Christian churches. Ory Amitay delves into a wide range of primary texts in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew to trace Alexander as a mythological figure, from his relationship to his ancestor and rival, Herakles, to the idea of his divinity as the son of a god. In compelling detail, Amitay illuminates both Alexander's links to Herakles and to two important and enduring ideas: that of divine sonship and that of reconciliation among peoples.

Early Christian Doctrine and the Creeds
"The SCM Studyguide Early Christian Doctrine and the Creeds" offers an accessible, stimulating and interactive guide-book to the emergence of Christian identity, with particular attention to the earliest form of the Christian thought and doctrine. The author analyses the crucial statements of the early Creeds and rules of faith. He explains the creedal statements on the nature of God, creation, incarnation, redemption, the Church and eschatology, and outlines the theological context which influenced their formulation and later modifications by other texts and authors.

Baan, B., C. Gruwez, J. van Schaik
Bronnen van het Christendom: Petrus, Paulus en Johannes
Drie zelfstandige auteurs, Bastiaan Baan, Christine Gruwez en John van Schaik, hielden gezamenlijk een reeks van voordrachten over de bronnen van het christendom, waarvan dit boek het resultaat is. Uitgaande van de apostelen Petrus, Paulus en Johannes is gepoogd, deze drie stromingen in het christendom te volgen tot hun oorsprong, waarbij de auteurs zich afvragen uit welke inspiratiebron deze apostelen putten. In de eerste drie hoofdstukken wordt gezocht naar de voorchristelijke bronnen. Vervolgens worden de drie apostelen in hun eigen aard en karakteristiek beschreven. In de derde reeks van hoofdstukken worden de - voornamelijk esoterische - stromingen van petrinisch, paulinisch en johanneisch christendom in de eerste eeuwen gevolgd. Wie de verbanden tussen deze vormen van het christendom zoekt, zal herkennen dat elk van deze drie de andere vormen aanvult en nodig heeft om de werkelijkheid van Jezus Christus te benaderen.

Becker, A.H.
Fear of God and the Beginning of Wisdom. The School of Nisibis and the Development of Scholastic Culture in Late Antique Mesopotamia
The School of Nisibis was the main intellectual center of the Church of the East in the sixth and early seventh centuries C.E. and an institution of learning unprecedented in antiquity. Fear of God and the Beginning of Wisdom provides a history both of the School and of the scholastic culture of the Church of the East more generally in the late antique and early Islamic periods. Adam H. Becker examines the ideological and intellectual backgrounds of the school movement and reassesses the evidence for the supposed predecessor of the School of Nisibis, the famed School of the Persians of Edessa. Furthermore, he argues that the East-Syrian ("Nestorian") school movement is better understood as an integral and at times contested part of the broader spectrum of East-Syrian monasticism. Becker examines the East-Syrian culture of ritualized learning, which flourished at the same time and in the same place as the famed Babylonian Rabbinic academies. Jews and Christians in Mesopotamia developed similar institutions aimed at inculcating an identity in young males that defined them as beings endowed by their creator with the capacity to study. The East-Syrian schools are the most significant contemporary intellectual institutions immediately comparable to the Rabbinic academies, even as they served as the conduit for the transmission of Greek philosophical texts and ideas to Muslims in the early 'Abbasid period.

Berk, Tjeu van den
Het oude Egypte: bakermat van het jonge Christendom
Niet in het orthodoxe Jeruzalem, het klassieke Athene of het wettische Rome, maar in de smeltkroes van het gnostieke Alexandrie ontstonden de grote mythen van het jonge christendom. In dit boek gaat Tjeu van den Berk terug naar het oude Egypte. De bekende theoloog Eugen Drewermann schreef: 'Op het vlak van de geloofssymboliek is de religie van de christenen geheel identiek aan die van de religie van de Oude Egyptenaren, vanuit godsdiensthistorisch standpunt moet men zelfs spreken van een volledige afhankelijkheid van het christendom van deze religie uit het Oude Oosten'. Tjeu van den Berk sluit zich bij Drewermann aan en staat in dit boek stil bij de oeroude archetypische beelden die volgens hem aan de overeenkomsten tussen de Egyptische religie en het christendom ten grondslag liggen.

Bockmuehl, M.
Jewish Law in Gentile Churches. Halakhah and the Beginning of Christian Public Ethics
Why did the Gentile church keep Old Testament commandments about sex and idolatry, but disregard many others, like those about food or ritual purity? If there were any binding norms, what made them so, and on what basis were they articulated? In this study, Markus Bockmuehl approaches such questions by examining the halakhic (Jewish legal) rationale behind the ethics of Jesus, Paul and the early Christians. He offers answers based on careful biblical and historical study. His arguments have far-reaching implications not only for the study of the New Testament, but more broadly for the relationship between Christianity and Judaism.

Bockmuehl, M. and Stroumsa, G.G.
Paradise in Antiquity. Jewish and Christian Views
The social and intellectual vitality of Judaism and Christianity in antiquity was in large part a function of their ability to articulate a viably transcendent hope for the human condition. Narratives of Paradise - based on the concrete symbol of the Garden of Delights - came to play a central role for Jews, Christians, and eventually Muslims too. These collected essays highlight the multiple hermeneutical perspectives on biblical Paradise from Second Temple Judaism and Christian origins to the systematic expositions of Augustine and rabbinic literature. They show that while early Christian and Jewish sources draw on texts from the same Bible, their perceptions of Paradise often reflect the highly different structures of the two sister religions. Dealing with a wide variety of texts, these essays explore major themes such as the allegorical and literal interpretations of Paradise, the tension between heaven and earth, and Paradise's physical location in space and time.

Redemption and Resistance. The Messianic Hopes of Jews and Christians in Antiquity
Redemption and Resistance brings together an eminent cast of contributors to provide a state-of-the-art discussion of Messianism as a topic of political and religious commitment and controversy. By surveying this motif over nearly a thousand years with the help of a focused historical and political searchlight, this volume is sure to break fresh ground. It will serve as an attractive contribution to the history of ancient Judaism and Christianity, of the complex and often problematic relationship between them, and of the conflicting loyalties their hopes for redemption created vis a vis a public order that was at first pagan and later Christian. Although each chapter is designed to stand on its own as an introduction to the topic at hand, the overall argument unfolds a coherent history.

The first two parts, on pre-Christian Jewish and primitive Christian Messianism, set the stage by identifying two entities that in Part III are then addressed in the development of their explicit relationship in a Graeco-Roman world marked by violent persecution of Jewish and Christian hopes and loyalties. The story is then explored beyond the Constantinian turn and its abortive reversal under Julian, to the Christian Empire up to the rise of Islam.

The Gnostics. Myth, Ritual, and Diversity in Early Christianity
Who were the Gnostics? And how did the Gnostic movement influence the development of Christianity in antiquity? Is it true that the Church rejected Gnosticism? This book offers an illuminating discussion of recent scholarly debates over the concept of 'Gnosticism' and the nature of early Christian diversity. Acknowledging that the category 'Gnosticism' is flawed and must be reformed, David Brakke argues for a more careful approach to gathering evidence for the ancient Christian movement known as the Gnostic school of thought. He shows how Gnostic myth and ritual addressed basic human concerns about alienation and meaning, offered a message of salvation in Jesus, and provided a way for people to regain knowledge of God, the ultimate source of their being.

Braun, W.
Its Just Another Story: The Politics of Remembering the Earliest Christians
Publication expected 2014

With one eye on the motives for and the manners of the production of early Christian narratives of Christian beginnings, and the other eye on modern scholarly and popular motives for and manners of appropriating the early Christian narratives, this book offers a bifocal meditation on the historiographical practices and problems entailed in the concept of Christian "origins". The author begins by examining why and how early and modern Christian "archive fever" (Derrida) converts the mythic notion of "origin" to the historical concept of "beginnings" and that sees in "beginnings" an endlessly redeeming past. The gospel of Mark is an elaborated example of "just another story" that, though it really is just another story, perhaps not a very good one by any accounting, is exalted to the status of a charter narrative that is read as the true story of how it truly was in the past. The story of Jesus, fixed just so by elaborate techniques of producing stories that present themselves as histories, is a second example of early and modern past-making for purposes that are not in the past but for which the past as a constructed ideal is valuable currency in the contest for social and political identity and power in the present. A third example of a constructed past as a fix for modern ills is evident in modern attempts to find in the beginnings of Christianity an ideology that favoured a set of practices that were emancipatory for women. The author exposes this reading as "wishful thinking" historiography and explains why such historiography is compelling both in the academy and in popular thinking. In the final chapter the author engages current historiographical theories in order to explain why the Christian past is like a dead ancestor who refuses to stay dead.

Perpetuas Passions: Multidisciplinary Approaches to the Passio Perpetuae et Felicitatis
Perpetua's Passions is a collection of studies about Perpetua, a young female Christian martyr who was executed in 203 AD. Like her spiritual guide, Saturus, Perpetua left a diary, and a few years after their deaths a fellow Christian collected these writings and supplied them with an introduction and epilogue: the so-called Passion of Perpetua. The result is one of the most fascinating and enigmatic works of antiquity, which the present volume examines from a wide range of perspectives: literary, narratological, historical, religious, psychological, and philosophical viewpoints follow upon a newly edited text and English translation (by Joseph Farrell and Craig Williams). This innovative treatment by a number of distinguished scholars not only complements its unique subject, but constitutes a kind of laboratory of new approaches to ancient texts.

Broek , Roelof Van Den
Gnostic Religion in Antiquity
Gnostic religion is the expression of a religious worldview which is dominated by the concept of Gnosis, an esoteric knowledge of God and the human being which grants salvation to those who possess it. Roelof van den Broek presents here a fresh approach to the gnostic current of Late Antiquity within its historical and religious context, based on sources in Greek, Latin and Coptic, including discussions of the individual works of preserved gnostic literature. Van den Broek explores the various gnostic interpretations of the Christian faith that were current in the second and third centuries, whilst showing that despite its influence on early Christianity, gnostic religion was not a typically Christian phenomenon. This book will be of interest to theologians, historians of religion, students and scholars of the history of Late Antiquity and early Christianity, as well as specialists in ancient gnostic and hermetic traditions.

Cohen, S.J.D.
The Beginnings of Jewishness. Boundaries, Varieties, Uncertainties
In modern times, various Jewish groups have argued whether Jewishness is a function of ethnicity, of nationality, of religion, or of 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 brilliantly argued, accessible book unravels one of the most complex issues of late antiquity by showing how these elements were understood and applied in the construction of Jewish identity - by Jews, by gentiles, and by the state. Beginning with the intriguing case of Herod the Great's Jewishness, Cohen moves on to discuss what made or did not make Jewish identity during the period, the question of conversion, the prohibition of intermarriage, matrilineal descent, and the place of the convert in the Jewish and non-Jewish worlds. His superb study is unique in that it draws on a wide range of sources: Jewish literature written in Greek, classical sources, and rabbinic texts, both ancient and medieval. It also features a detailed discussion of many of the central rabbinic texts dealing with conversion to Judaism.

Cohn, Naftali S.
The Memory of the Temple and the Making of the Rabbis
When the rabbis composed the Mishnah in the late second or early third century C.E., the Jerusalem Temple had been destroyed for more then a century. Why, then, do the Temple and its ritual feature so prominently in the Mishnah? Against the view that the rabbis were reacting directly to the destruction and asserting that nothing had changed, Naftali S. Cohn argues that the memory of the Temple served a political function for the rabbis in their own time. They described the Temple and its ritual in a unique way that helped to establish their authority within the context of Roman dominance. At the time the Mishnah was created, the rabbis were not the only ones talking extensively about the Temple: other Judaeans (including followers of Jesus), Christians, and even Roman emperors produced texts and other cultural artifacts centered on the Jerusalem Temple. Looking back at the procedures of Temple ritual, the rabbis created in the Mishnah a past and a Temple in their own image, which lent legitimacy to their claim to be the only authentic purveyors of Jewish tradition and the traditional Jewish way of life. Seizing on the Temple, they sought to establish and consolidate their own position of importance within the complex social and religious landscape of Jewish society in Roman Palestine.

The Grotesque Body in Early Christian Discourse. Hell, Scatology and Metamorphosis
Early Christian apocryphal and conical documents present us with grotesque images of the human body, often combining the playful and humorous with the repulsive, and fearful. 1st to 3rd Century Christian literature was shaped by the discourse around and imagery of the human body. This study analyses how the iconography of bodily cruelty and visceral morality was produced and refined from the very start of Christian history.

Different aspects of the grotesque body are examined in each chapter with careful consideration given to both historical sources and literary representations. The sources range across Greek comedy, Roman and Jewish demonology, and metamorphosis traditions. The study reveals how these images originated, were adopted, and were shaped to the service of a doctrinally and psychologically persuasive Christian message.

DeConick, A.D.
Holy Misogyny. Why the Sex and Gender Conflicts in the Early Church Still Matter
This title shows how the 'female' was systematically erased from the Christian tradition and explores surprising early Christian attitudes to sex, sin and women. In "Holy Misogyny", bible scholar April DeConick wants real answers to the questions that are rarely whispered from the pulpits of the contemporary Christian churches. Why is God male? Why are women associated with sin? Why can't women be priests? Drawing on her extensive knowledge of the early Christian literature, she seeks to understand the conflicts over sex and gender in the early church - what they were and what was at stake. She explains how these ancient conflicts have shaped contemporary Christianity and its promotion of male exclusivity and superiority in terms of God, church leadership, and the bed. DeConick's detective work uncovers old aspects of Christianity before later doctrines and dogmas were imposed upon the churches, and the earlier teachings about the female were distorted. "Holy Misogyny" shows how the female was systematically erased from the Christian tradition, and why. She concludes that the distortion and erasure of the female is the result of ancient misogyny made divine writ, a holy misogyny that remains with us today

Depalma Digeser, E.
The Making of a Christian Empire: Lactantius and Rome
The work of the Christian scholar Lactantius provides an ideal lens through which to study how Rome became a Christian empire. Elizabeth DePalma Digeser shows how Lactantius' Divine Institutes - seditious in its time - responded to the emperor Diocletian's persecution and then became an important influence on Constantine the Great, Rome's first Christian emperor.

The Making of a Christian Empire is the first full-length book to interpret the Divine Institutes as a historical source. Exploring Lactantius' use of theology, philosophy, and rhetorical techniques, Digeser perceives the Divine Institutes as a sophisticated proposal for a monotheistic state that intimately connected the religious policies of Diocletian and Constantine, both of whom used religion to fortify and unite the Roman Empire. For Digeser, Lactantius' writings justify Constantine's own attitude of tolerance toward pagans and casts light upon other puzzling features of Constantine's religious policy. Her book contributes importantly to an understanding of the political and religious tensions of the early fourth century.

DePalma Digeser, E.
A Threat to Public Piety. Christians, Platonists, and the Great Persecution
In A Threat to Public Piety, Elizabeth DePalma Digeser reexamines the origins of the Great Persecution (AD 303–313), the last eruption of pagan violence against Christians before Constantine enforced the toleration of Christianity within the Empire. Challenging the widely accepted view that the persecution enacted by Emperor Diocletian was largely inevitable, she points out that in the forty years leading up to the Great Persecution Christians lived largely in peace with their fellow Roman citizens. Why, Digeser asks, did pagans and Christians, who had intermingled cordially and productively for decades, become so sharply divided by the turn of the century?

Making use of evidence that has only recently been dated to this period, Digeser shows that a falling out between Neo-Platonist philosophers, specifically Iamblichus and Porphyry, lit the spark that fueled the Great Persecution. In the aftermath of this falling out, a group of influential pagan priests and philosophers began writing and speaking against Christians, urging them to forsake Jesus-worship and to rejoin traditional cults while Porphyry used his access to Diocletian to advocate persecution of Christians on the grounds that they were a source of impurity and impiety within the empire.

Ehrman, B.
Forgery and Counter-forgery. The Use of Literary Deceit in Early Christian Polemics
Forgery and Counter-Forgery: The Use of Literary Deceit in Early Christian Polemics by Bart Ehrman, the New York Times best-selling author of Misquoting Jesus and recognized authority on early Christianity, is the first major contemporary work on forgery in early Christian literature. It examines the motivation and function behind Christian literary forgeries. Ehrman guides readers through Christian literary forgeries of the first four centuries CE while providing coverage of other ancient texts. He asks why early Christians lied about themselves when writing polemical works; and then answers by showing how unknown Christian authors used forgeries to defend their own faith and attack other interpretations of early Christianity. He further asks why many scholars resist acknowledging their forgeries; and he answers that the forgeries uncomfortably call into question the authority of the New Testament. The book is essential reading for those interested in early Christianity and the New Testament.

Ehrman, Bart D.
The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture: The Effect of Early Christiological Controversies on the Text of the New Testament
Victors not only write history: they also reproduce the texts. Bart Ehrman explores the close relationship between the social history of early Christianity and the textual tradition of the emerging New Testament, examining how early struggles between Christian "heresy" and "orthodoxy" affected the transmission of the documents over which many of the debates were waged. He makes a crucial contribution to our understanding of the social and intellectual history of early Christianity and raises intriguing questions about the relationship of readers to their texts, especially in an age when scribes could transform the documents they reproduced. This edition includes a new afterword surveying research in biblical interpretation over the past twenty years.

After the New Testament. A Reader in Early Christianity
This present collection of primary texts reveals the remarkable diversity of the early Christian movement from the time of the New Testament up to the writings of Eusebius (c.100-300). Including works later deemed both "orthodox" and "heterodox", and organized according to historical and social categories (e.g. persecution and marytrdom, the rise of anti-Judaism, the development of church offices, "heresy" and "orthodoxy", and the formation of early liturgy), the texts are given in clear and up-to-date English translations, each introduced by a concise and informative overview. Packed with clear and compelling information, the collection is suitable for anyone - student, teacher, pastor, layperson - interested in the history and literature of Christianity's first three centuries.

Ehrman, B.D.
Jesus, Interrupted. Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (and Why We Don`t Know About Them)

Picking up where Bible expert Bart Ehrman's "New York Times" bestseller "Misquoting Jesus" left off, "Jesus, Interrupted" addresses the larger issue of what the New Testament actually teaches--and it's not what most people think. Here Ehrman reveals what scholars have unearthed:

The authors of the New Testament have diverging views about who Jesus was and how salvation works

The New Testament contains books that were forged in the names of the apostles by Christian writers who lived decades later

Jesus, Paul, Matthew, and John all represented fundamentally different religions

Established Christian doctrines--such as the suffering messiah, the divinity of Jesus, and the trinity--were the inventions of still later theologians

These are not idiosyncratic perspectives of just one modern scholar. As Ehrman skillfully demonstrates, they have been the standard and widespread views of critical scholars across a full spectrum of denominations and traditions. Why is it most people have never heard such things? This is the book that pastors, educators, and anyone interested in the Bible have been waiting for--a clear and compelling account of the central challenges we face when attempting to reconstruct the life and message of Jesus.

Ekelund, R.B. & R.D. Tillison
Economic Origins of Roman Christianity
In the global marketplace of ideas, few realms spark as much conflict as religion. For millions of people, it is an integral part of everyday life as reflected by a widely divergent supply of practices and philosophical perspectives. Yet, historically, the marketplace has not always been competitive. While the early Common Era saw competition between Christianity, Judaism, and the many pagan cults, Roman Christianity eventually came to dominate Western Europe. Using basic concepts of economic theory, Robert B. Ekelund Jr. and Robert D. Tollison explain the origin and subsequent spread of Roman Christianity, showing first how the standard concepts of risk, cost, and benefit can account for the demand for religion. Then, drawing on the economics of networking, entrepreneurship, and industrial organization, the book explains Christianity's rapid ascent. Like a business, the church developed sound business strategies that increased its market share to a near monopoly in the medieval period. This book offers a fascinating look at the dynamics of Christianity's rise, as well as how aspects of the church's structure - developed over the first millennium - illuminate a number of critical problems faced by the church today.

Judaism of the Second Temple Period, Volume 1: Qumran and Apocalypticism
David Flusser was a very prolific scholar of the Dead Sea Scrolls, and his contributions to Scrolls research, apocalypticism, and apocalyptic literature are inestimable. Now with this English translation of many of his essays, Flusser's insights are available to a wider audience than ever before. Here Flusser examines the influence of apocalypticism on various Jewish sects. He states that the teachings of Jesus, while reflecting first and foremost the views of the sages, are also influenced by Jewish apocalypticism. Examining the Essenes, their effect on Hebrew language, the split of sects, and much more, Flusser's collected essays offer an important source of study for any Dead Sea Scrolls scholar.

Fredriksen, Paula
Sin. The Early History of an Idea
Ancient Christians invoked sin to account for an astonishing range of things, from the death of God's son to the politics of the Roman Empire that worshipped him. In this book, award-winning historian of religion Paula Fredriksen tells the surprising story of early Christian concepts of sin, exploring the ways that sin came to shape ideas about God no less than about humanity. Long before Christianity, of course, cultures had articulated the idea that human wrongdoing violated relations with the divine. But "Sin" tells how, in the fevered atmosphere of the four centuries between Jesus and Augustine, singular new Christian ideas about sin emerged in rapid and vigorous variety, including the momentous shift from the belief that sin is something one does to something that one is born into. As the original defining circumstances of their movement quickly collapsed, early Christians were left to debate the causes, manifestations, and remedies of sin. This is a powerful and original account of the early history of an idea that has centrally shaped Christianity and left a deep impression on the secular world as well.

Frevel, Christian(ed)
Mixed Marriages: Intermarriage and Group Identity in the Second Temple Period
This volume investigates intermarriage and group identity in the Second Temple Period from different points of view with regard to methodology and analyzed texts. With an introduction to the history of research and a summarizing final section, the individual contributions are associated with the larger context of the recent debate. Thus not only the diversity of texts on mixed marriage within the Hebrew Bible and related scripture is shown and emphasized but the question of continuity and discontinuity as well as the socio-historical background of marriage restrictions is dealt with, too. Covering a wide range of texts from almost every part of the Hebrew Bible as well as from Elephantine, Qumran and several pseudepigrapha, like Jubilees, its focus is on possible counter texts with a more positive notion of foreign wives, in addition to restrictive and prohibitive texts. These different approaches illuminate the dynamics of the construction of group identity, culminating in conflicts concerning separation and integration which can be found in the debate on the topic of the "correct" marriage.

Galinsky, K.
Augustus. Introduction to the Life of an Emperor
Augustus, Rome's first emperor, is one of the great figures of world history and one of the most fascinating. In this lively and concise biography Karl Galinsky examines Augustus' life from childhood to deification. He chronicles the mosaic of vicissitudes, challenges, setbacks and successes that shaped Augustus' life, both public and private. How did he use his power? How did he manage to keep re-inventing himself? What kind of man was he? A transformative leader, Augustus engineered profound change in Rome and throughout the Mediterranean world. No one would have expected such vast achievements from the frail and little-known eighteen-year-old who became Caesar's heir amid turmoil and crisis. A mere thirteen years later, after defeating Antony and Cleopatra, he had, in his words, 'power over all things'.

Gauger, Jorg-Dieter (Hg)
Sibyllinische Weissagungen. Griechisch-Deutsch
Unter dem Namen oracula Sibyllina ist eine Sammlung in Hexameter abgefasster Pseudoorakel uberliefert mit den Buchern 1-8 und 11-14 in etwa 4230 Versen. Die fruhesten Teile (Buch 3) entstanden im judischen Milieu seit der 2. Halfte des 1. Jahrhunderts v. Chr.; nach 150 n. Chr. wurden diese durch christliche Autoren rezipiert, erganzt und uberarbeitet. Die historischen Anspielungen reichen bis in das 3. nachchristliche Jahrhundert; die Endfassung wurde wohl im 6. Jahrhundert abgeschlossen. Der Legende nach hat freilich Tarquinius Superbus, der letzte legendare Konig Roms, die Bucher direkt von der Sibylle von Cumae erworben. Im Tempel des Iuppiter Capitolinus aufbewahrt und von 15 Priestern gehutet, durften sie nur eingesehen werden, wenn der Senat wegen beangstigender Vorzeichen dies anordnete. Im Jahr 83 v. Chr. vernichtete ein Brand auf dem Kapitol die Sammlung, eine neue wurde aufgrund von Nachforschungen an griechischen Sibyllenheiligtumern zusammengestellt.

The Origins of Judaism. From Canaan to the Rise of Islam
The Origins of Judaism provides a clear, straightforward account of the development of ancient Judaism in both the Judean homeland and the Diaspora. Beginning with the Bible and ending with the rise of Islam, the text depicts the emergence of a religion that would be recognized today as Judaism out of customs and conceptions that were quite different from any that now exist. Special attention is given to the early rabbis' contribution to this historical process. Together with the main narrative, the book provides substantial quotations from primary texts (biblical, rabbinic and other) along with extended side treatments of important themes, a glossary, short biographies of leading early rabbis, a chronology of important dates and suggestions for further reading.

Rabbinic Texts and the History of Late-Roman Palestine
This volume brings together studies by experts in the rabbinic literature of late antiquity and by specialists in the history of the Jews in that period in order to reveal the value of rabbinic material as historical evidence and the problems and issues which arise in its exploitation. A substantial introductory section discusses the current state of knowledge about Palestine in this period and debates about the difficulties involved in editing and dating rabbinic texts. Specific core texts and text categories are then introduced to the reader in a series of ten discrete studies. The volume concludes with six thematic analyses which illustrate the use and limitations of rabbinic evidence for cultural, religious, political, economic and social history. This volume will be essential reading for all scholars concerned with the history of the later Roman Empire.

Rethinking the Other in Antiquity
Prevalent among classicists today is the notion that Greeks, Romans, and Jews enhanced their own self-perception by contrasting themselves with the so-called Other--Egyptians, Phoenicians, Ethiopians, Gauls, and other foreigners--frequently through hostile stereotypes, distortions, and caricature. In this provocative book, Erich Gruen demonstrates how the ancients found connections rather than contrasts, how they expressed admiration for the achievements and principles of other societies, and how they discerned--and even invented--kinship relations and shared roots with diverse peoples.

Gruen shows how the ancients incorporated the traditions of foreign nations, and imagined blood ties and associations with distant cultures through myth, legend, and fictive histories. He looks at a host of creative tales, including those describing the founding of Thebes by the Phoenician Cadmus, Rome's embrace of Trojan and Arcadian origins, and Abraham as ancestor to the Spartans. Gruen gives in-depth readings of major texts by Aeschylus, Herodotus, Xenophon, Plutarch, Julius Caesar, Tacitus, and others, in addition to portions of the Hebrew Bible, revealing how they offer richly nuanced portraits of the alien that go well beyond stereotypes and caricature.

Providing extraordinary insight into the ancient world, this controversial book explores how ancient attitudes toward the Other often expressed mutuality and connection, and not simply contrast and alienation.

The Gendered Palimpsest. Women, Writing and Representation in Early Christianity
Books and bodies, women and books lie thematically at the center of The Gendered Palimpsest, which explores the roles that women played in the production, reproduction, and dissemination of early Christian books, and how the representation of female characters is contested through the medium of writing and copying. The book is organized in two sections, the first of which treats historical questions: To what extent were women authors, scribes, book-lenders, and patrons of early Christian literature? How should we understand the representation of women readers in ascetic literature? The second section of the book turns to text-critical questions: How and why were stories of women modified in the process of copying? And how did debates about asceticism - and, more specifically, the human body - find their way into the textual transmission of canonical and apocryphal literature? Throughout, Haines-Eitzen uses the notion of a palimpsest in its broadest sense to highlight the problems of representation, layering, erasure, and reinscription. In doing so, she provides a new dimension to the gendered history of early Christianity.

The Other in Second Temple Judiasm. Essays in Honor of John J. Collins
Dedicated to prominent biblical scholar John J. Collins, The Other in Second Temple Judaism explores the various ways in which Jews living in the Hellenistic and early Roman periods (both in the land of Israel and the Diaspora) constructed their identity in relation to other Jews, pagans, and Christians. The twenty-eight contributors which include both seasoned scholars and rising stars in the field interact with Collinss work as they engage the books unifying theme, focusing their efforts around five areas of scholarly inquiry that reflect the scope of Collinss distinguished career: - The Hebrew Bible and Its Reception - Wisdom - Apocalypticism - The Dead Sea Scrolls - Jews among Greeks and Romans

Harper, Kyle
From Shame to Sin: The Christian Transformation of Sexual Morality in Late Antiquity
When Rome was at its height, an emperor's male beloved, victim of an untimely death, would be worshipped around the empire as a god. In this same society, the routine sexual exploitation of poor and enslaved women was abetted by public institutions. Four centuries later, a Roman emperor commanded the mutilation of men caught in same-sex affairs, even as he affirmed the moral dignity of women without any civic claim to honor. The gradual transformation of the Roman world from polytheistic to Christian marks one of the most sweeping ideological changes of premodern history. At the center of it all was sex. Exploring sources in literature, philosophy, and art, Kyle Harper examines the rise of Christianity as a turning point in the history of sexuality and helps us see how the roots of modern sexuality are grounded in an ancient religious revolution. While Roman sexual culture was frankly and freely erotic, it was not completely unmoored from constraint. Offending against sexual morality was cause for shame, experienced through social condemnation. The rise of Christianity fundamentally changed the ethics of sexual behavior. In matters of morality, divine judgment transcended that of mere mortals, and shame--a social concept--gave way to the theological notion of sin. This transformed understanding led to Christianity's explicit prohibitions of homosexuality, extramarital love, and prostitution. Most profound, however, was the emergence of the idea of free will in Christian dogma, which made all human action, including sexual behavior, accountable to the spiritual, not the physical, world.

Harrington, H.K.
Holiness. Rabbinic Judaism and the Graeco-Roman World
Scholars have defined holiness in many ways. These range from the vague and ethereal adjective 'numinous' to practical matters of ritual purity. When a bunch of grain and God can both be called 'holy', how should we understand the elusive meaning of this word? Dr Harrington presents an in-depth exploration of holiness in the context of rabbinic Judaism, based on a holistic yet detailed understanding of the relevant texts and Scripture. The rabbinic concept of holiness is placed alongside other notions of the sacred in the Graeco-Roman world, providing a much-needed comparative view of this core subject during a key period in the development of the Jewish religion. Holiness will be of interest to students and scholars of biblical studies, Graeco-Roman religions and Jewish Studies.

As a one-volume reference work, it provides an introduction to the academic study of early Christianity (c. 100-600 AD) and examines the vast geographical area impacted by the early church, in Western and Eastern late antiquity. It is thematically arranged to encompass history, literature, thought, practices, and material culture. It contains authoritative and up-to-date surveys of current thinking and research in the various sub-specialties of early Christian studies, written by leading figures in the discipline. The essays orientate readers to a given topic, as well as to the trajectory of research developments over the past 30-50 years within the scholarship itself. Guidance for future research is also given. Each essay points the reader towards relevant forms of extant evidence (texts, documents, or examples of material culture), as well as to the appropriate research tools available for the area. This volume will be useful to advanced undergraduate and post-graduate students, as well as to specialists in any area who wish to consult a brief review of the 'state of the question' in a particular area or sub-specialty of early Christian studies, especially one different from their own.

The Oxford Handbook of Jewish Daily Life in Roman Palestine
Written by an international and interdisciplinary team of distinguished scholars, The Oxford Handbook of Jewish Daily Life in Roman Palestine is an indispensable reference compendium on the day-to-day lives of Jews in the land of Israel in Roman times. Ranging from subjects such as clothing and domestic architecture to food and meals, labour and trade, and leisure time activities, the volume covers all the major themes in an encompassing yet easily accessible way. Individual chapters introduce the reader to the current state of research on particular aspects of ancient Jewish everyday life - research which has been greatly enriched by critical methodological approaches to rabbinic texts, and by the growing interest of archaeologists in investigating the lives of ordinary people. Detailed bibliographies inspire further engagement by enabling readers to pursue their own lines of enquiry.The Handbook will prove to be an invaluable reference work and tool for all students and scholars of ancient Judaism, rabbinic literature, Roman provincial history and culture, and of ancient Christianity.

Hirshman, M.
The Stabilization of Rabbinic Culture, 100 C.E. - 350 C.E.
Drawing on the great progress in Talmudic scholarship over the last century, The Stabilization of Rabbinic Culture is both an introduction to a close reading of rabbinic literature and a demonstration of the development of rabbinic thought on education in the first centuries of the Common Era. In Roman Palestine and Sasanid Persia, a small group of approximately two thousand Jewish scholars and rabbis sustained a thriving national and educational culture. They procured loyalty to the national language and oversaw the retention of a national identity. This accomplishment was unique in the Roman Near East, and few physical artifacts remain. The scope of oral teaching, however, was vast and was committed to writing only in the high Middle Ages. The content of this oral tradition remains the staple of Jewish learning through modern times. Though oral learning was common in many ancient cultures, the Jewish approach has a different theoretical basis and different aims. Marc Hirshman explores the evolution and institutionalization of Jewish culture in both Babylonian and Palestinian sources. At its core, he argues, the Jewish cultural thrust in the first centuries of the Common Era was a sustained effort to preserve the language of its culture in its most pristine form. Hirshman traces and outlines the ideals and practices of rabbinic learning as presented in the relatively few extensive discussions of the subject in late antique rabbinic sources. The Stabilization of Rabbinic Culture is a pioneering attempt to characterize the unique approach to learning developed by the rabbinic leadership in late antiquity.

Christian Origins
Dealing with a time when "Christians" were moving towards separation from the movement's Jewish origins, this inaugural volume of "A People's History of Christianity" tells "the people's story" by gathering together evidence from the "New Testament" texts, archeology, and other contemporary sources. Of particular interest to the distinguished group of scholar-contributors are the often overlooked aspects of the earliest "Christian" consciousness: How, for example, did they manage to negotiate allegiances to two social groups?

Horst, Pieter W. van der
De Samaritanen, geschiedenis en godsdienst van een Israelitische gemeenschap
Bij veel Nederlanders zal bij de term Samaritanen nog een associatie met de barmhartige Samaritaan van het evangelieverhaal oproepen, maar velen denken er helemaal niets meer bij. Toch vormen de Samaritanen een buitengewoon interessante religieuze groepering die nu al zo'n 25 eeuwen bestaat en in ledental door de eeuwen heen varieerde van enkele honderdduizenden in de Romeise keizertijd tot nog geen 150 aan het begin van de twintigste eeuw. In dit boek wordt de lezer ingeleid in de dramatische geschiedenis en fascinerende cultuur van een niet-Joodse maar wel Israelitische groepering die zich in zijn trouw aan de Tora van Mozes tegen de verdrukking in heeft weten te handhaven tot op de dag van vandaag.

Vrouwen naast Paulus. Twee romans uit het vroege christendom
In de wereld van het vroege christendom spelen vrouwen een belangrijke rol. Zo waren er al vroeg vrouwenfiguren die werden verbonden met de apostel Paulus. Twee vroegchristelijk Griekse romans over zulke vrouwen en hun contacten met Paulus zijn in deze vertaling bijeen gebracht.

De korte 'Handelingen van Thecla en Paulus' vertellen het verhaal van de al in de late oudheid beroemde heilige Thecla, die de contouren krijgt van een soort vrouwelijke apostel naast Paulus. Het langere, minder bekende verhaal van Xanthippe en Polyxena vertelt van een soortgelijk verlangen om Paulus te volgen bij twee andere vrouwen. We reizen met hen mee in de antieke wereld, en beleven avonturen tot in Spanje.

De twee teksten laten zien hoezeer antieke lezers behoefte hebben gehad aan identificatie met vrouwenfiguren. Het vroege christendom blijkt rijker geschakeerd dan op het eerste gezicht lijkt. De beide teksten zijn stevig geworteld in de christelijke wereld, maar staan als vertellende teksten ook onmiskenbaar in de traditie van Griekse en Latijnse romans. Compleet met zeereizen, heldinnen en Grote Liefdes. Al zijn die laatste dan vooral geestelijk.

Paulus-kenner Fik Meijer (die recentelijk een studie naar Paulus publiceerde) staat garant voor een deskundige en boeiende inleiding.

Traditions of the Rabbis from the Era of the New Testament. Volume 1, Prayer and Agriculture
Traditions of the Rabbis from the Era of the New Testament (TRENT) is a major new six-volume work of scholarship that provides an exhaustive collection of early rabbinic traditions and commentary on their relevance to the New Testament. Focusing on 63 rabbinic traditions central to ancient Jewish life, David Instone-Brewer's massive study provides significant insights into Jewish thought and practice prior to the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 C.E. For each rabbinic tradition considered, the supporting Hebrew source text is provided side by side with an English translation. Instone-Brewer also presents evidence that exists for accurately dating these rabbinic sources -- a critical task recently advanced by modern dating techniques. He goes on to thoroughly discuss the meaning and importance of each rabbinic tradition for Second Temple Judaism, also analyzing any echoes or direct appearances of the tradition in the New Testament writings. In this first TRENT volume, Instone-Brewer examines texts relating to prayer and agriculture. The first section includes texts dealing with when and how to recite the Shema, the Eighteen Benedictions, and other blessings and prayers. The second section contains texts on a wide variety of considerations related to agriculture, such as the "leftovers" to which the poor were entitled, tithing, "mixed" foods and other products, Sabbath Year activities, offerings, and so on.

Johnson, L.T.
Among the Gentiles. Greco-Roman Religion and Christianity
The question of Christianity's relation to the other religions of the world is more pertinent and difficult today than ever before. While Christianity's historical failure to appreciate or actively engage Judaism is notorious, Christianity's even more shoddy record with respect to 'pagan' religions is less understood. Christians have inherited a virtually unanimous theological tradition that thinks of paganism in terms of demonic possession, and of Christian missions as a rescue operation that saves pagans from inherently evil practices. In undertaking this fresh inquiry into early Christianity and Graeco-Roman paganism, Luke Timothy Johnson begins with a broad definition of religion as a way of life organized around convictions and experiences concerning ultimate power. In the tradition of William James' "Variety of Religious Experience", he identifies four distinct ways of being religious: religion as participation in benefits, as moral transformation, as transcending the world, and as stabilizing the world. Using these criteria as the basis for his exploration of Christianity and paganism, Johnson finds multiple points of similarity in religious sensibility. Christianity's failure to adequately come to grips with its first pagan neighbours, Johnson asserts, inhibits any effort to engage positively with adherents of various world religions. This thoughtful and passionate study should help break down the walls between Christianity and other religious traditions.

Het leven van de eerste christenen in een heidense cultuur is ook nu nog voor velen een inspiratiebron. Dit boek wil deze eerste gelovigen nog dichterbij brengen door hun dagelijks leven te schilderen.

De wereld van de vroege kerk biedt een schat aan informatie over gewoonten en gebruiken in de Romeinse tijd. Door de studie van archeologisch materiaal en oude bronnen geeft Simon Jones antwoord op vragen als: Hoe besteedden mensen hun vrije tijd? Hoe zag het gezinsleven eruit? Hoe verdienden mensen de kost? Wat was de rol van vrouwen? Hoe verliepen de samenkomsten van de eerste christenen?

Door de vele foto's, kaarten en afbeeldingen is De wereld van de vroege kerk een fascinerende ontdekkingsreis die deze periode op een aansprekende manier tot leven brengt.

Kalvesmaki, Joel
The Theology of Arithmetic: Number Symbolism in Platonism and Early Christianity
In the second century, Valentinians and other gnosticizing Christians used numerical structures and symbols to describe God, interpret the Bible, and frame the universe. In this study of the controversy that resulted, Joel Kalvesmaki shows how earlier neo-Pythagorean and Platonist number symbolism provided the impetus for this theology of arithmetic, and describes the ways in which gnosticizing groups attempted to engage both the Platonist and Christian traditions. He explores the rich variety of number symbolism then in use, among both gnosticizing groups and their orthodox critics, demonstrating how those critics developed an alternative approach to number symbolism that would set the pattern for centuries to come. Arguing that the early dispute influenced the very tradition that inspired it, Kalvesmaki explains how, in the late third and early fourth centuries, numbers became increasingly important to Platonists, who engaged in arithmological constructions and disputes that mirrored the earlier Christian ones.

The Cambridge History of Judaism. Volume 4, The Late Roman-Rabbinic Period
This fourth volume of The Cambridge History of Judaism covers the period from 70 CE to 640 CE (the rise of Islam). It deals with the major historical, political and cultural developments in Jewish history and the history of Judaism in this crucial era during which Judaism took on its classical shape. It provides discussion and analysis of all the essential subjects pertinent to an understanding of this period, and is especially strong in its coverage of the growth and development of rabbinic Judaism and of the major classical rabbinic sources such as the Mishnah, Jerusalem Talmud, Babylonian Talmud and various Midrashic collections. In addition, it surveys the early encounter of Judaism and Christianity from both the Jewish and Christian sides and describes the rise of Jewish mystical literature, the liturgical literature of the developing synagogue, the nature of magical practices in classical Judaism and Jewish Folklore.

Knoppers, Gary N.
Jews and Samaritans: The Origins and History of Their Early Relations
Covering over a thousand years of history (from the Assyrian exile in the eighth century BCE to late Roman times), this book makes an important contribution to the fields of Jewish studies, biblical studies, ancient Near Eastern studies, Samaritan Studies, and early Christian history by challenging the oppositional paradigm that has traditionally characterized the historical relations between Jews and Samaritans. The approach is multi-disciplinary, engaging exciting new discoveries in archaeology, such as the site surveys of ancient Samaria and the major excavations at the holy site of Mt. Gerizim in central Israel; new discoveries in epigraphy, such as the publication of the Samaria papyri dating to the late-Persian period (375-335 BCE), the publication of hundreds of late-Persian period Samarian coins, and the publication of hundreds of fragmentary Mt. Gerizim inscriptions (dating mostly to the late-third and early-second centuries BCE); as well as new discoveries in biblical studies, such as the diverse collection of Pentateuchal manuscripts found among the Dead Sea Scrolls. Only by recognizing the close ties that developed between Samaria and Judah during the much of the first millennium BCE can one explain how the two communities became so similar in belief and practice, even sharing a common set of foundational scriptures (the Pentateuch). Paradoxically, accounting for how two such similar groups as the Samaritans and Jews became alienated from one another during the Maccabean and Roman periods involves explaining how the two were so closely related in the first place. The solution to this puzzle is to be found in earlier Israelite history.

The Celts: History, Life, and Culture
The study of Celtic history has a wide international appeal, but unfortunately many of the available books on the subject are out-of-date, narrowly specialized, or contain incorrect information. Online information on the Celts is similarly unreliable. This two-volume set provides a well-written, up-to-date, and densely informative reference on Celtic history that is ideal for high school or college-aged students as well as general readers.

"The Celts: History, Life, and Culture" uses a cross-disciplinary approach to explore all facets of this ancient society. The book introduces the archaeology, art history, folklore, history, linguistics, literature, music, and mythology of the Celts and examines the global influence of their legacy. Written entirely by acknowledged experts, the content is accessible without being simplistic. Unlike other texts in the field, "The Celts: History, Life, and Culture" celebrates all of the cultures associated with Celtic languages at all periods, providing for a richer and more comprehensive examination of the topic.

Evil and the Devil
The problem of evil has preoccupied world religions for centuries. The Old Testament contained no uniform dogma on evil powers, launching a fierce debate that has dominated theological and philosophical thought through the centuries to this day. Evil and the Devil brings together contributions from leading inter national scholars to chart that debate, tracing the history of evil from its origins in the Old Testament through early Judaism and the New Testament to the thought of Origen and one of the topic's most influential theologians, Augustine. What role did evil adopt in ancient Judaism? What impact did the association of miracles with demons have upon Matthew's Gospel? Evil and the Devil examines such questions, resulting in a fascinating and comprehensive exploration of portrayals of evil and its power and influence on religious thought.

Lapin, Hayim
Rabbis as Romans: The Rabbinic Movement in Palestine, 100-400 CE
Conventionally, the history of the rabbinic movement has been told as a distinctly intra-Jewish development, a response to the gaping need left by the tragic destruction of the Jerusalem temple in 70 CE. In Rabbis as Romans, Hayim Lapin reconfigures that history, drawing attention for the first time to the extent to which rabbis participated in and were the product of a Roman and late-antique political economy. Lapin discusses how rabbis as a group were relatively well off, literate Jewish men, a kind of sub-elite in most provinces of the Roman empire. That rabbis were deeply embedded in a wider Roman world is clear from their marriage choices, the rhetoric they used to describe their own group (often mirroring that used for Greek philosophical schools), their open embrace of Roman bathing habits, and their ambivalence towards theaters and public entertainments. Rabbis also form one of the most accessible and well-documented examples of a 'nativizing' traditionalist movement in a Roman province. It was a movement committed to articulating the social, ritual, and moral boundaries between an Israelite 'us' and everyone else. To attend seriously to the contradictory position of rabbis as both within and outside of a provincial cultural economy, says Lapin, is both to uncover the historical contingencies that shaped what later generations understood as simply Judaism and to reexamine in a new light the cultural work of Roman provincialization itself.

Llewelyn, S.R., J.R. Harrison (eds)
A Review of the Greek and Other Inscriptions and Papyri Published 1988-1992
Each year many new Greek inscriptions and papyri are published. Others are supplemented or revised. For teachers and students of early Christianity and ancient Judaism such documents may be difficult of access and interpretation. But they offer fresh insight into the cultural setting of the literary sources. In every case the ancient text is reproduced here. A parallel English translation is provided by each contributor, along with full discussion.

From 1981 a first set of five volumes of New Docs was edited by G.H.R. Horsley, with special attention to word usage. Volume 10 completes a second set of five edited by S.R. Llewelyn, focussing on major social institutions of the time. A comprehensive series of indexes for vols 6-10 as a set opens up a cumulative perspective on many topics.

Notable entries in Volume 10 include:
-Artemis triumphs over a sorcerer
-How to celebrate Hadrian's accession
-The customs law of Asia
-Repairing the baths at Colossae
-The Babatha archive and Roman law
-The Temple warning against Gentiles

Interpreting the Bible and Aristotle in Late Antiquity. The Alexandrian Commentary Tradition between Rome and Baghdad
This book brings together sixteen studies by internationally renowned scholars on the origins and early development of the Latin and Syriac biblical and philosophical commentary traditions. It casts light on the work of the founder of philosophical biblical commentary, Origen of Alexandria, and traces the developments of fourth- and fifth-century Latin commentary techniques in writers such as Marius Victorinus, Jerome and Boethius. The focus then moves east, to the beginnings of Syriac philosophical commentary and its relationship to theology in the works of Sergius of Reshaina, Probus and Paul the Persian, and the influence of this continuing tradition in the East up to the Arabic writings of al-Farabi. There are also chapters on the practice of teaching Aristotelian and Platonic philosophy in fifth-century Alexandria, on contemporaneous developments among Byzantine thinkers, and on the connections in Latin and Syriac traditions between translation (from Greek) and commentary.

With its enormous breadth and the groundbreaking originality of its contributions, this volume is an indispensable resource not only for specialists, but also for all students and scholars interested in late-antique intellectual history, especially the practice of teaching and studying philosophy, the philosophical exegesis of the Bible, and the role of commentary in the post-Hellenistic world as far as the classical renaissance in Islam.

Lucass, S.
The Concept of the Messiah in the Scriptures of Judiasm and Christianity
In this book, Shirley Lucass examines the history of the concept of messiah in biblical, and post-biblical traditions. For 2000 years, Judaism and Christianity have been at odds with one another. The problem at the heart of the division is the concept of messiah. Shirley Lucass looks directly at the concept of messiah from an historical perspective and examines its roots in ancient Jewish literature, and its development within the Christian tradition, aiming not only to trace the biblical and extra-biblical developments of the concept, but to outline a platform for religious dialogue. Lucass begins with a survey of methodological approaches, and then moves on to consider the origins of the messiah concept in ancient near eastern kingship, the 'anointed' in the Second Temple period and the messiah as outlined in the New Testament and in post 70 CE Messianism. Lucass contends that the New Testament concept of messiah is not inconsistent with, nor incompatible with the Jewish antecedent traditions, and it is this conclusion which enables her to present a valuable chapter on the implications of this study for inter-religious dialogue. "The Library of Second Temple Studies" is a premier book series that offers cutting-edge work for a readership of scholars, teachers, postgraduate students and advanced undergraduates in the field of Second Temple studies. All the many and diverse aspects of Second Temple study are represented and promoted, including innovative work from historical perspectives, studies using social-scientific and literary theory, and developing theological, cultural and contextual approaches.

Luttikhuizen, G.P.
De veelvormigheid van het vroegste christendom
Het christendom kende in haar ontstaanstijd waarschijnlijk nog meer diversiteit dan het pluriforme christendom van onze tijd. Hoe konden de eerste volgelingen zo verschillend over Jezus denken? Deze vraag is actueel sinds de ontdekking in de vorige eeuw van een groot aantal tot dan toe onbekende vroegchristelijke bronnen, zoals het Evangelie van Thomas, het Geheime Boek van Johannes en de Openbaring van Petrus.

De veelvormigheid van het vroegste christendom geeft een indruk van wat deze 'nieuwe' bronnen bijdragen aan onze kennis van het vroegste christendom. Speciale aandacht is er voor de vroege vormen van gnostisch en esoterisch christendom. In een wetenschappelijk, maar helder betoog (lees: niet-speculatief) wordt het gedachtegoed van verschillende groeperingen vroege christenen voor een breed publiek toegankelijk gemaakt.

Madigan, K. and Carolyn Osiek (eds.)
Ordained Women in the Early Church. A Documentary History
In a time when the ordination of women is an ongoing and passionate debate, the study of women's ministry in the early church is a timely and significant one. There is much evidence from documents, doctrine, and artifacts that supports the acceptance of women as presbyters and deacons in the early church. While this evidence has been published previously, it has never before appeared in one complete English-language collection. With this book, church historians Kevin Madigan and Carolyn Osiek present fully translated literary, epigraphical, and canonical references to women in early church offices. Through these documents, Madigan and Osiek seek to understand who these women were and how they related to and were received by, the church through the sixth century. They chart women's participation in church office and their eventual exclusion from its leadership roles. The editors introduce each document with a detailed headnote that contextualizes the text and discusses specific issues of interpretation and meaning. They also provide bibliographical notes and cross-reference original texts. Madigan and Osiek assemble relevant material from both Western and Eastern Christendom.

Stone and Dung, Oil and Spit. Jewish Daily Life in the Time of Jesus
In Stone and Dung, Oil and Spit Jodi Magness unearths footprints buried in both archaeological and literary evidence to shed new light on Jewish daily life in Palestine from the mid-first century b.c.e. to 70 c.e. the time and place of Jesus life and ministry.
Magness analyzes recent archaeological discoveries from such sites as Qumran and Masada together with a host of period texts, including the New Testament, the works of Josephus, and rabbinic teachings. Layering all these sources together, she reconstructs in detail a fascinating variety of everyday activities dining customs, Sabbath observance, fasting, toilet habits, burial customs, and more.

Marguerat, D.
Le Dieu des premiers chretiens
Le premier christianisme des années 30 à 90 se développe dans un foisonnement culturel, religieux et théologique dont on peine souvent à comprendre l’unité. Quel est son Dieu, quel est son message par-delà une diversité qui paraît à première vue prêter à confusion ? Dans cette nouvelle édition d’un ouvrage considéré comme un classique de l’introduction au langage et à la théologie des premiers chrétiens, Daniel Marguerat propose une mise à jour et des développements rendant compte des progrès de la recherche depuis sa première parution en 1991. Cette adaptation garde la structure d’une présentation qui a fait son succès. Dans une première partie, l’auteur évoque la multiplicité des langages empruntés pour dire Dieu, la parabole, le récit de miracle, les lectures de la Bible hébraïque, la résurrection… Dans un second temps, il interroge les grands théologiens du Nouveau Testament, Paul, les évangélistes, Jean et l’Apocalypse… Cet essai n’est pas seulement un exercice érudit de synthèse. Sa dynamique est plus ample. Dans la société gréco-romaine du premier siècle, dans l’érosion des grandes religions ou dans la montée de spiritualités orientales, il y a plus d’un paramètre commun avec nos sociétés du XXIe siècle. Le Dieu des premiers chrétiens ? Un Dieu incontestablement contemporain.

Mendels, Doron
Why Did Paul Go West?: Jewish Historical Narrative and Thought
In his new book Doron Mendels addresses the topic of the authority of texts and their transmission, as well as different strategies of narration in ancient texts. Mendels provides extensive treatment of issues such as linearity, emporality and simultaenity of texts, whilst working to examine four core themes. First, the narrator and his strategies in the historiography of the Hellenistic period. Secondly, Jewish Historical thought in the Hellenistic period and beyond. Thirdly, issues of Hellenization in Palestine - power, honour, gifting, etiquette and sovereignty and their presentation in the main narrative of the Hasmonean period. Finally Mendels gives attention to the 'split' in the Jewish diaspora between east and west, as exemplified from a Christian point of view, it is this that unites these themes into a sustained examination of Jewish historical narrative and thought.

Meyers, E.M & M.A. Chancey
Alexander to Constantine. Archaeology of the Land of the Bible
Drawing on the most recent, groundbreaking archaeological research, Eric M. Meyers and Mark A. Chancey re-narrate the history of ancient Palestine in this richly illustrated and expertly integrated book. Spanning from the conquest of Alexander the Great in the fourth century BCE until the reign of the Roman emperor Constantine in the fourth century CE, they synthesize archaeological evidence with ancient literary sources (including the Bible) to offer a sustained overview of the tumultuous intellectual and religious changes that impacted world history during the Greco-Roman period.

Eric M. Meyers and Mark A. Chancey describe Hellenism as the main vehicle for the transformation of early Judaism and early Christianity in material culture and sacred traditions. They provide detailed discussions of the emergence of the two as sister religions, undistinguishable in many ways for centuries, then discuss how Judaism and Christianity developed in separate ways, especially after the rise of imperial Christianity with Emperor Constantine. A treasury of information coupled with brilliant insights, this book has much to offer scholar, student, and general reader alike.

Handbook of Jewish Literature from Late Antiquity, 135-700 CE
From major seminal works like the Mishnah or the Palestinian and Babylonian Talmuds, to Biblical commentaries, translations of Biblical books into Aramaic or relatively little-known mystical, liturgical or apocalyptic writings, here is a complete guide to the rich tradition of Jewish literature in the second to seventh centuries of the Common Era. Each work is described in a succinct and clearly structured entry which covers its contents, dating, language and accessibility (or otherwise) in print or online. The aim throughout is to cover all of this literature and to answer the following questions. What Jewish literature, written either in Hebrew or Aramaic, has survived? What different genres of such literature are there? What printed texts, or translations into any modern language, or commentaries (either in Hebrew or a European language) are there? And, for those who want to enquire further, what are the manuscripts on which modern editions are based? This handbook will be of value to scholars and students of Jewish Studies and historians of Late Antiquity, as well as scholars in neighbouring disciplines, such as Near Eastern history or Theology.

Moss, C. R.
The Other Christs. Imitating Jesus in Ancient Christian Ideologies of Martyrdom
This book uses the martyr's imitation of Jesus in the acts of the martyrs as a window into the history of ideas.

Through groundbreaking analysis of early Christian texts, Candida Moss reveals that the words, actions, and deaths of martyrs are modeled on those of Christ. Moss traces this imitation through the literature of the Jesus movement and early church, then examines interpretations of the martyr's death and afterlife. Arguing against the dominant theory that the martyr's death was seen as a sacrifice, Moss finds that beyond death martyrs continue to be assimilated to Christ as intercessors, judges, enthroned monarchs, and banqueters. Though characterization of the martyr as "another Christ" ultimately conflicted with theological commitments to Christ's uniqueness, Moss shows that, for a brief period, the martyr's imitation was viewed as sharing in the status of the exalted Christ.

Moss, C.R.
Ancient Christian Martyrdom. Diverse Practices, Theologies and Traditions
The importance of martyrdom for the spread of Christianity in the first centuries of the Common Era is a question of enduring interest. In this innovative new study, Candida Moss offers a radically new history of martyrdom in the first and second centuries that challenges traditional understandings of the spread of Christianity and rethinks the nature of Christian martyrdom itself. Martyrdom, Moss shows, was not a single idea, theology, or practice: there were diverse perspectives and understandings of what it meant to die for Christ. Beginning with an overview of ancient Greek, Roman, and Jewish ideas about death, Moss demonstrates that there were many cultural contexts within which early Christian views of martyrdom were very much at home. She then shows how distinctive and diverging theologies of martyrdom emerged in different ancient congregations. In the process she reexamines the authenticity of early Christian stories about martyrs and calls into question the dominant scholarly narrative about the spread of martyrdom in the ancient world.

Nasrallah, Laura S.
An Ecstasy of Folly
Who is a true prophet? Who has real access to divine realms of knowledge? Early Christian communities accused each other's prophets of madness and of making false claims to divine knowledge. This book argues that early Christians did not seek to answer questions about true prophecy or to define madness and rationality, but rather used this discourse in order to control knowledge, to establish their own authority, and to define Christian identity. Christians launched these arguments in the context of the Greco-Roman world, where prophecy, visions, ecstasy, and dreams--all considered part of the same phenomenon--were the subject of cutting-edge philosophical, medical, and even political debates.

Early Christian prophecy has usually been interpreted according to a model which explains that at its origins, Christianity was characterized by vibrant spiritual gifts which declined as church order and institutions developed. Arguing that a model of struggle informed by feminist theory and postcolonial criticism provides a better framework for understanding early Christian texts, this work clarifies how early Christian arguments about rationality, madness, and the role of spiritual gifts in history are attempts to negotiate authority and to define religious identity in the midst of many competing forms of Christianity. Laura Nasrallah uses New Testament and early third-century texts to trace the rhetoric of this debate--rhetoric that is still alive today as communities across the globe struggle to define religious identity.

From Roman to Early Christian Thessalonike. Studies in Religion and Archaeology
This volume brings together international scholars of religion, archaeologists, and scholars of art and architectural history to investigate social, political, and religious life in Roman and early Christian Thessalonike, an important metropolis in the Hellenistic, Roman, and early Christian periods and beyond. This volume is the first broadly interdisciplinary investigation of Roman and early Christian Thessalonike in English and offers new data and new interpretations by scholars of ancient religion and archaeology. The book covers materials usually treated by a broad range of disciplines: New Testament and early Christian literature, art historical materials, urban planning in antiquity, material culture and daily life, and archaeological artifacts from the Roman to the late antique period.

Prejudice and Christian Beginnings: Investigating Race, Gender and Ethnicity in Early Christianity
While scholars of the New Testament and its Roman environment have recently focused attention on ethnicity, on the one hand, and gender on the other, the two questions have often been discussed separately--and without reference to the contemporary critical study of race theory. This interdisciplinary volume addresses this lack by drawing together new essays by prominent scholars in the fields of New Testament, classics, and Jewish studies. Highly attuned to questions of social location and interpretive method, these essays push against the marginalization of race and ethnicity studies and put the received wisdom of New Testament studies squarely in the foreground. This volume sets the agenda for a new methodology in New Testament studies.

North, J.A. & S.R.F. Price (eds)
The Religious History of the Roman Empire. Pagans, Jews, and Christians
This collection of papers, many of them either published here in English for the first time or previously available only in specialist libraries, deals with the religious history of the Roman Empire. Written by leading scholars, the essays have contributed to a revolutionary change in our understanding of the religious situation of the time, and illuminate both the world religions of Christianity and Judaism and the religious life of the pagan Empire in which these developed and which deeply influenced their characters. No knowledge of ancient languages is presupposed, so the book is accessible to all who are interested in the history of this crucial period.

Oegema, Gerbern S.
Apocalyptic Interpretation of the Bible: Apocalypticism and Biblical Interpretation in Early Judaism, the Apostle Paul, the Historical Jesus, and Their Reception History
This book presents a synthesis of Gerbern Oegema's extensive research on apocalypticism and Biblical interpretation. Oegema works with the hypothesis that apocalypticism was a major current and mindset from the beginning of the Second Temple period, through Enochic literature, the Qumran Scrolls and the New Testament into Late Antiquity, shaping many inner-Jewish traditions and those emerging from Early Judaism, namely the Early Church and Rabbinic Judaism. The topics and texts dealt with range from prophecy and apocalypticism in Second Temple Judaism, messianic expectations in the Qumran writings, the apocalyptic interpretation of the Patriarchs in 4QPatriarchal Blessings (4Q252), the 'Coming of the Righteous One' in 1 Enoch, Qumran and the New Testament, to the historical Jesus between Early Judaism and Early Christianity.

Ogden, Daniel
Dragons, Serpents, and Slayers in the Classical and Early Christian Worlds: A Sourcebook
Stories about dragons, serpents, and their slayers make up a rich and varied tradition within ancient mythology and folklore. In this sourcebook, Daniel Ogden presents a comprehensive and easily accessible collection of dragon myths from Greek, Roman, and early Christian sources. Some of the dragons featured are well known: the Hydra, slain by Heracles; the Dragon of Colchis, the guardian of the golden fleece overcome by Jason and Medea; and the great sea-serpent from which Perseus rescues Andromeda. But the less well known dragons are often equally enthralling, like the Dragon of Thespiae, which Menestratus slays by feeding himself to it in armor covered in fish-hooks, or the lamias of Libya, who entice young men into their striking-range by wiggling their tails, shaped like beautiful women, at them. The texts are arranged in such a way as to allow readers to witness the continuity of and evolution in dragon stories between the Classical and Christian worlds, and to understand the genesis of saintly dragon-slaying stories of the sort now characteristically associated with St George, whose earliest dragon-fight concludes the volume. All texts, a considerable number of which have not previously been available in English, are offered in new translations and accompanied by lucid commentaries that place the source-passages into their mythical, folkloric, literary, and cultural contexts. A sampling of the ancient iconography of dragons and an appendix on dragon slaying myths from the ancient Near East and India, particularly those with a bearing upon the Greco-Roman material, are also included. This volume promises to be the most authoritative sourcebook on this perennially fascinating and influential body of ancient myth.

Waarom werd uit al die duizenden godsdiensten die bloeiden in de begindagen van het Romeinse rijk, uitgerekend de jaloerse God van een kleine, roerige provincie drie eeuwen later gekozen als de enige ware godsdienst? Waarom koos men niet voor de veel populairdere cultus van Isis? Waarom werden de lessen van de Stoicijnen of Zarathustra niet gevolgd, waar geen martelaren nodig waren? Waarom niet Apollonius, Boeddha, Confucius? Waarom was het christendom bij uitstek geschikt? Selina O'Grady geeft op boeiende, heldere wijze antwoord op deze vraag.

Orlov, A. A.
Dark Mirrors. Azazel and Satanael in Early Jewish Demonology
Dark Mirrors is a wide-ranging study of two central figures in early Jewish demonology—the fallen angels Azazel and Satanael. Andrei A. Orlov explores the mediating role of these paradigmatic celestial rebels in the development of Jewish demonological traditions from Second Temple apocalypticism to later Jewish mysticism, such as that of the Hekhalot and Shi‘ur Qomah materials. Throughout, Orlov makes use of Jewish pseudepigraphical materials in Slavonic that are not widely known.

Orlov traces the origins of Azazel and Satanael to different and competing mythologies of evil, one to the Fall in the Garden of Eden, the other to the revolt of angels in the antediluvian period. Although Azazel and Satanael are initially representatives of rival etiologies of corruption, in later Jewish and Christian demonological lore each is able to enter the other’s stories in new conceptual capacities. Dark Mirrors also examines the symmetrical patterns of early Jewish demonology that are often manifested in these fallen angels’ imitation of the attributes of various heavenly beings, including principal angels and even God himself.

Pagels, Elaine
Adam, Eve and the Serpent
How did the early Christians come to believe that sex was inherently sinful? When did the Fall of Adam become synonymous with the fall of all humanity? What turned Christianity from a dissident sect that championed the integrity of the individual and the idea of free will into the bulwark of a new imperial order-with the central belief that human beings cannot choose not to sin? In this provocative materpiece of historical scholarship Elaine Pagels recreates the controversies that racked the early church as it confronted the riddles of sexuality, freedom, and sin as embodied in the story of Genesis. And she shows how what was once heresy came to shape our own attitudes toward the body and the soul.

Petropoulou, M.-Z.
Animal Sacrifice in Ancient Greek Religion, Judaism, and Christianity, 100 BC to AD 200
A study of animal sacrifice within Greek paganism, Judaism, and Christianity during the period of their interaction between about 100 BC and AD 200. After a vivid account of the realities of sacrifice in the Greek East and in the Jerusalem Temple (up to AD 70), Maria-Zoe Petropoulou explores the attitudes of early Christians towards this practice. Contrary to other studies in this area, she demonstrates that the process by which Christianity finally separated its own cultic code from the strong tradition of animal sacrifice was a slow and difficult one. Petropoulou places special emphasis on the fact that Christians gave completely new meanings to the term 'sacrifice'. She also explores the question why, if animal sacrifice was of prime importance in the eastern Mediterranean at this time, Christians should ultimately have rejected it.

The Macarian Legacy. The Place of Macarius-Symeon in the Eastern Christian Tradition
The Macarian writings are among the most important and influential works of the early Christian ascetic and mystical tradition. This book offers an introduction to the work of Macarius-Symeon (commonly referred to as Pseudo-Macarius), outlining the lineaments of his teaching and the historical context of his works. The book goes on to examine and re-evaluate the complex question of his relationship with the Messalian tendency and to explore the nature of his theological and spiritual legacy in the later Christian tradition. In so doing the book also offers substantial treatments of the work of Mark the Monk, Diadochus of Photice, Abba Isaiah, and Maximus Confessor. It stands therefore not only as an exploration of the teaching and legacy of Macarius-Symeon but also as a chapter in the history of the Christian spiritual tradition.

Portier-Young, A. E.
Apocalypse Against Empire. Theologies of Resistance in Early Judaism
A fresh and daring take on ancient apocalyptic books.The year 167 b.c.e. marked the beginning of a period of intense persecution for the people of Judea, as Seleucid emperor Antiochus IV Epiphanes attempted forcibly and brutally to eradicate traditional Jewish religious practices. In Apocalypse against Empire Anathea Portier-Young reconstructs the historical events and key players in this traumatic episode in Jewish history and provides a sophisticated treatment of resistance in early Judaism.Building on a solid contextual foundation, Portier-Young argues that the first Jewish apocalypses emerged as a literature of resistance to Hellenistic imperial rule. She makes a sturdy case for this argument by examining three extant apocalypses, giving careful attention to the interplay between social theory, history, textual studies, and theological analysis. In particular, Portier-Young contends, the book of Daniel, the Apocalypse of Weeks, and the Book of Dreams were written to supply an oppressed people with a potent antidote to the destructive propaganda of the empire renewing their faith in the God of the covenant and answering state terror with radical visions of hope.

Quispel, Gilles
Valentinus de Gnosticus en zijn Evangelie der Waarheid
Gnosiskenner Gilles Quispel keerde met deze beschouwing over leven, werken en invloed van de tweede-eeuwse gnosticus terug naar zijn eerste wetenschappelijke liefde: Valentinus, volgens Quispel de grootste gnosticus van de oudheid. Quispel beschrijft de carriere van Valentinus (ca. 100-160 na Christus), die nog bijna Bisschop van Rome was geworden maar het moest afleggen tegen de kandidaat van een concurrerende christelijke factie, Paus Pius I. Volgens de kerkvader Tertullianus verspreidde Valentinus vervolgens uit nijd de gnostische ketterij. Quispel toont aan waarom deze aantijging ongeloofwaardig is: Valentinus is waarschijnlijk al eerder, in Alexandrie, waar hij immers filosofisch werd geschoold, in aanraking gekomen met het gnosticisme.

De leer van Valentinus, haar oorsprongen en haar overeenkomsten met de hermetische leringen komen uitgebreid aan bod. Het boek biedt tevens twee integrale vertalingen van de hand van Quispel van Valentiniaanse gnostische teksten, met uitleg: de eerste het aan Valentinus toegeschreven Evangelie der Waarheid, vertaald uit het koptisch, de tweede de Brief aan Flora, door een leerling van Valentinus, Ptolemaeus. Het gnostische systeem van Ptolemaeus, dat geinspireerd was op dat van Valentinus, is uitgewerkt in een fraaie zestiende-eeuwse houtsnede: deze illustratie is opgenomen in het boek en door Quispel voorzien van commentaar. Twee andere illustraties hebben achtereenvolgens betrekking op de egyptische wortels van Valentinus en de mogelijke aanwezigheid van een Valentiniaanse gemeenschap in Rome nog een eeuw na de dood van Valentinus.

Sandgren, L.D.
Vines Intertwined. A History of Jews and Christians from the Babylonian Exile to the Advent of Islam
The study of Jewish/Christian history in antiquity is experiencing a renaissance. As a result, the relationship between Jews and Christians has shifted from a "mother-daughter" paradigm to one better described as "siblings." Recognizing that Judaism and Christianity are what they are because of each other and were not formed in isolation, Leo Sandgren provides readers and researchers with a comprehensive generation-by-generation political history of the Jews to the point where both are fully defined against each other at the start of the Middle Ages. Vines Intertwined is a convenient reference work to this extended period of antiquity, with sufficient "bookends" of history to show where it began and how it ends. Making use of numerous contemporary studies as well as often neglected classics, Sandgren thoroughly develops the concept of "the people of God" and the core ideology behind Jewish and Christian self-definition. A ready reference for students, scholars, pastors, and laypeople, this accessible resource comes with a CD that includes the entire book as a searchable PDF and a list of emperors, rabbis, and church fathers.

Sandt, Huub v.d., David Flusser
The Didache. Its Jewish Sources and its Place in Early Judaism and Christianity.
The Didache, or Doctrine of the Twelve Apostles, is an important source for our knowledge of early Christianity. The Didache demonstrates that we should understand nascent Christianity and early Judaism as sharing to a large extent the same traditions.
The volume throws fresh light on the Jewishness of the Two Ways teaching in Didache 1-6. It presents a cautious reconstruction of the Jewish prototype of the Two Ways and traces the Jewish life situation in which the instruction could emerge and flourish. This attempt is important, as it provides us with a Jewish source (and its transmission) underlying Christian and Jewish writings. For example, it is shown how acquaintance with these traditional materials benefits our perception of the antithetical section in Matthew 5:17-48. In the field of liturgical studies, a significant contribution is made to the discussion of Didache 7-10. It improves our understanding of the Jewish provenance and historical development of Baptism and the Eucharist. The book also presents an intriguing look into the redactional stages behind the materials about church discipline. The ministry of itinerant apostles and prophets moving from town to town, and their settling down in the community, is considered in the perspective of the larger environment of Jewish religious and cultural history.
This volume will prove indispensable for all those engaged in the study of early Judaism, the New Testament, Patristics, the origins of Christian liturgy, and early Church history in general.

Sandt, Huub v.d. (ed.)
Matthew and the Didache: Two Documents from the Same Jewish- Christian Millieu?
There are significant agreements between the Didache and the Gospel of Matthew as these writings share words, phrases and motifs. In modern scholarship, there seems to be an increasing reluctance, however, to support the thesis that the Didache used Matthew. And, indeed, such a close relationship might equally suggest that both documents were created in the same historical and geographical setting, for example in the Greek-speaking part of Syria.

If the Didache and Matthew did indeed emanate from the same geographical, social, and cultural setting, new questions arise. Who were the Christians standing behind the Didache and Matthew? Can we trace the developing interests of the respective community or communities in the different textual layers of the Didache and Matthew? Is it possible to frame the congregation(s) within the social history of Jews and Jewish believers-in-Jesus in first-century Syria? What stage of development or separation between Christians, Jewish Christians, and Jews is envisaged?

In order to invite discussion and exchange ideas on this fundamental issue, an international conference was organized by the Tilburg Faculty of Theology in April 2003. Scholars of related fields (New Testament, Second Temple Judaism, Liturgy, Patristic Studies) were brought together to debate about the matter in the light of their diverse specialties and previous research. This volume contains the edited proceedings of the meeting of experts.

Die Geburt des Judentums aus dem Geist des Christentums. Funf Vorlesungen zur Entstehung des rabbinischen Judentums
Peter Schafer untersucht die Ruckwirkungen des sich herauskristallisierenden Christentums auf das zeitgenossische rabbinische Judentum. Vor allem die im Christentum allmahlich konkrete Gestalt annehmende Idee einer gottlichen Zweiheit (Vater und Sohn) bzw. Dreiheit (Vater, Sohn und Heiliger Geist) hat im rabbinischen Judentum deutlichere Spuren hinterlassen als bisher meist angenommen.
Daneben spielen die sich aus dem Menschensohn des Danielbuches entwickelnden Vorstellungen und die Gestalt eines hochsten Engels mit Namen Metatron eine Rolle, der sogar den Beinamen "Kleiner Gott" erhalt. Auch das stellvertretenden Suhneleidens des Messias wird (wieder) in das Judentum einfuhrt.
Die Grenzen zwischen "Rechtglaubigkeit" und "Haresie" erweisen sich als fliessend, und mehr als einmal drangt sich die haretische Uberlegung auf, ob man nicht nur von der "Geburt des Christentums aus dem Geist des Judentums" sprechen sollte, sondern umgekehrt auch von der "Geburt des Judentums aus dem Geist des Christentums"

Schafer, P.
Judenhass und Judenfurcht Die Entstehung des Anti-semitismus in der Antike
Antisemitismus in seinem breiten Spektrum von diskreditierenden Unterstellungen bis hin zu dem Willen, die Juden physisch zu vernichten, ist bereits ein Phänomen der griechisch-römischen Antike. Im Jahr 38 n. Chr. wurde im ägyptischen Alexandria das älteste jüdische Getto errichtet; in einem Gewaltexzeß wurden zahllose Juden von ihren eigenen Mitbürgern niedergemetzelt. Gibt es eine Erklärung für ein solches Geschehen? Ist der antike Antisemitismus die Folge konkreter Konflikte, die zur religiösen und politisch-sozialen Diffamierung des jüdischen Gegners führten? Oder entzündete er sich an den als fremd empfundenen jüdischen Lebensformen und wurde dann zur Durchsetzung der eigenen Interessen lediglich instrumentalisiert?

Peter Schäfer stellt anhand der antiken Quellen dar, wie Juden mit ihrer besonderen Lebensweise und ihren religiösen Überzeugungen von ihrer Umwelt wahrgenommen wurden. Was dachten Nichtjuden über den Sabbat, die Beschneidung und die Enthaltung von Schweinefleisch? Wie wirkten auf sie der jüdische Monotheismus und das Selbstverständnis, als Gottes auserwähltes Volk aus Ägypten ins Land Kanaan geführt worden zu sein? Wie reagierten sie darauf, daß die jüdische Religion zunehmend Anziehungskraft auf Nichtjuden ausübte? Diese Wahrnehmungen stellen das potentielle Arsenal an antijüdischen Motiven bereit.

Die anschließende exemplarische Darstellung zweier historischer Ereignisse (in Elephantine und Alexandria) verdeutlicht Schlüsselursachen und Strukturen des antiken Antisemitismus. So kann schließlich anhand dreier notorischer Konfliktherde (Ägypten, Syrien/Palästina und Rom) gezeigt werden, wie politisch-soziale Interessen und antijüdische Motive in konkreten Situationen eine unheilige Allianz eingingen und das Phänomen hervorbrachten, das wir den antiken Antisemitismus nennen.

Schafer, P.
Judeophobia: Attitudes Towards the Jews in the Ancient World
Aiming to take a fresh look at what the Greeks and Romans thought about the Jews, this book firmly locates the origins of anti-semitism in the ancient world. Hellenistic Egypt is established as the generating source, with roots extending back into Egypt's pre-Hellenistic past. A pattern of ingrained hostility to an alien culture emerges from Greek and Roman writing, when a whole spectrum of comments on Jews and their religion are surveyed.
The writings focus on the topics most interesting to the pagan classical world: the Exodus, or expulsion from Egypt as they interpreted it, the nature of the Jewish god, food restrictions, laws relating to the sabbath, and so on.
The author also explores key incidents in ancient Near Eastern history, the destruction of the temple in Elephantine in 400 BC and the riots in Alexandria in 38 AD, asking the question what fuelled these attacks on the Jewish community.
The book then points to a deep-seated ethnic resentment, originating in the Egyptian hatred of Jews, which was then transported to Syria-Palastine and then to Rome where it aquired a new element, the fear of this small community. Later, when Christianity was adopted by the Roman Emperor Constantine, the author asserts that Christian theology also added to the anti-semitic attitudes of the ancient world.

Schafer, P.
The Jewish Jesus. How Judaism and Christianity Shaped Each Other
In late antiquity, as Christianity emerged from Judaism, it was not only the new religion that was being influenced by the old. The rise and revolutionary challenge of Christianity also had a profound influence on rabbinic Judaism, which was itself just emerging and, like Christianity, trying to shape its own identity.

In The Jewish Jesus, Peter Schafer reveals the crucial ways in which various Jewish heresies, including Christianity, affected the development of rabbinic Judaism. He even shows that some of the ideas that the rabbis appropriated from Christianity were actually reappropriated Jewish ideas. The result is a demonstration of the deep mutual influence between the sister religions, one that calls into question hard and fast distinctions between orthodoxy and heresy, and even Judaism and Christianity, during the first centuries CE.

Schiffman, L.H.
From Text to Tradition. A History of Second Temple & Rabbinic Judaism
From Text to Tradition examines the history of Judaism as it developed from the religion on the biblical Israel to the Judaism of the talmudic rabbis. Each step in this process is discussed from the historical, literary and religious points of view and the context of the political history of the Jews. Among the topics covered in this connection are the biblical heritage which underlies all later Judaism, the importance of the Persian period for laying the groundwork for post biblical Judaism, the confrontation of Judaism with Hellenism, apocrypha, pseudepigrapha and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Pharisees, Sadducees and Essenes, the Jewish-Christian schism, the impact of the Jewish revolts against Rome and the destruction of the Temple, the rise of Rabbinic Judaism, and the development of the Mishnah, Talmud and Jewish Law.

One of the book's major theses is that the various approaches to Judaism shared sufficient common ground as to be classified as one, albeit variegated, religious tradition. Diverging trends may be - and are - traced during this period, as is the question of the role of interpretation, the impact of external influences, and the process by which the competing approaches were eventually supplanted by the rabbinic tradition, which became the basis for medieval and modern Judaism. In this way, Judaism is shown to have traveled the long road from the textual heritage of the Hebrew Bible to the oral tradition of the rabbis.

Schwartz, S.
Imperialism and Jewish Society: 200 BCE to 640 CE
This provocative new history of Palestinian Jewish society in antiquity marks the first comprehensive effort to gauge the effects of imperial domination on this people. Probing more than eight centuries of Persian, Greek, and Roman rule, Seth Schwartz reaches some startling conclusions - foremost among them that the Christianization of the Roman Empire generated the most fundamental features of medieval and modern Jewish life.

Schwartz begins by arguing that the distinctiveness of Judaism in the Persian, Hellenistic, and early Roman periods was the product of generally prevailing imperial tolerance. From around 70 C.E. to the mid-fourth century, with failed revolts and the alluring cultural norms of the High Roman Empire, Judaism all but disintegrated. However, late in the Roman Empire, the Christianized state played a decisive role in 're-Judaizing' the Jews. The state gradually excluded them from society while supporting their leaders and recognizing their local communities. It was thus in Late Antiquity that the synagogue-centered community became prevalent among the Jews, that there re-emerged a distinctively Jewish art and literature - laying the foundations for Judaism as we know it today.

Through masterful scholarship set in rich detail, this book challenges traditional views rooted in romantic notions about Jewish fortitude. Integrating material relics and literature while setting the Jews in their eastern Mediterranean context, it addresses the complex and varied consequences of imperialism on this vast period of Jewish history more ambitiously than ever before.

Shaw, B.D.
Sacred Violence. African Christians and Sectarian Hatred in the Age of Augustine
One route to understanding the nature of specifically religious violence is the study of past conflicts. Distinguished ancient historian Brent D. Shaw provides a new analysis of the intense sectarian battles between the Catholic and Donatist churches of North Africa in late antiquity, in which Augustine played a central role as Bishop of Hippo. The development and deployment of images of hatred, including that of the heretic, the pagan, and the Jew, and the modes by which these were most effectively employed, including the oral world of the sermon, were critical to promoting acts of violence. Shaw explores how the emerging ecclesiastical structures of the Christian church, on one side, and those of the Roman imperial state, on the other, interacted to repress or excite violent action. Finally, the meaning and construction of the acts themselves, including the Western idea of suicide, are shown to emerge from the conflict itself.

Judaism and Imperial Ideology in Late Antiquity
This book explores the influence of Roman imperialism on the development of Messianic themes in Judaism in the fifth through the eight centuries CE. It pays special attention to the ways in which Roman imperial ideology and imperial eschatology influenced Jewish representations of the Messiah and Messianic age. Topics addressed in the book include: representations of the Messianic kingdom of Israel as a successor to the Roman Empire, the theme of imperial renewal in Jewish eschatology and its Roman parallels, representations of the emperor in late antique literature and art and their influence on the representations of the Messiah, the mother of the Messiah in late antique and Byzantine cultural contexts, and the figure of the last Roman Emperor in Christian and Jewish tradition.

Das Ende des Opferkults. Die Religioesen Mutationen der Spaetantike
Die religiösen und gesellschaftlichen Veränderungen, die sich vom römischen Kaiserreich der Zeitenwende bis zum christlichen Imperium der ausgehenden Spätantike vollzogen, haben die Geschichte Europas und des Nahen Ostens bisin die Moderne maßgeblich geprägt. Stroumsa zeichnet einige wichtige Aspekte dieser religiösen Revolution nach und stellt insbesondere die häufig vernachlässigte Rolle des Judentums in diesem Prozeß heraus. Sein auch ins Englische und Italienische übersetztes Buch basiert auf vier Vorlesungen, die er im Februar 2004 am renommierten Collège de France gehalten hat. Trotz seiner stupenden Gelehrsamkeit setzt Stroumsa keine spezifischen Fachkenntnisse voraus und richtet sich vorrangig an ein breites, informiertes Publikum.

Stroumsa, G.G.
The End of Sacrifice. Religious Transformations in Late Antiquity
The religious transformations that marked late antiquity are an enigma that has challenged some of the West's greatest thinkers. But, according to Guy G. Stroumsa, the oppositions between paganism and Christianity that characterize prevailing theories have endured for too long. Instead of describing this epochal change as an evolution within the Greco-Roman world from polytheism to monotheism, he argues that the roots of this shift can be found not so much all around the Mediterranean as in the Near East. The "End of Sacrifice" points to the role of Judaism, particularly its inventions of new religious life following the destruction of the Second Temple in 70 CE. The end of animal sacrifice gave rise to new forms of worship, with a concern for personal salvation, scriptural study, rituals like praying and fasting, and the rise of religious communities and monasticism. It is what Christianity learned from Judaism about texts, death, and, above all, sacrifice that allowed it to supersede Greco-Roman religions and, Stroumsa argues, transform religion itself. A concise and original approach to a much-studied moment in religious history, "The End of Sacrifice" will be heralded by all scholars of late antiquity.

Tardieu, M.
Manichaeism
Translated by M.B. DeBevoise, Introduction by P. Mirecki

Manichaeism, once the state religion of Persia and long a vigorous contender for converts throughout the ancient Near East, is best remembered for the simplicity of its teachings about divine power. For Manicheans, the universe was ruled by a Lord of Light and a Lord of Darkness, who fought continuously for supremacy. All that was good was a gift from the Lord of Light, and all that was evil was an affliction visited by the Lord of Darkness. This dualism extended to cosmogony and ethics, splitting the universe into a spiritual realm that acted on the goodness of the human soul and a material realm that abetted the evil of the human body.

These stark oppositions mask a remarkable degree of doctrinal and liturgical complexity, the details of which have been obscured by centuries of suppression and persecution, first by the Christian church, then by Islam. One of the world's foremost experts on ancient religions, Michel Tardieu examines the fragmentary sources that have come down to us, pieces together the life and teachings of the prophet Mani (the itinerant Persian preacher and founder of this long lost faith), illuminates Manichaeism's ecclesiastical hierarchy and distinctive moral code, and investigates its ideas about the pre-life and afterlife.

Manichaeism provides a brilliantly compact survey of what was once one of the world's great faiths, and then became one of its great heresies, surviving now only as a shadowy presence haunting the religions that superseded it.

Die Religion der ersten Christen
Dritte, durchgesehene Auflage

Die Dynamik des urchristlichen Glaubens ist in der Dynamik des Lebens verwurzelt. In diesem Buch zeigt Gerd Theissen, was die ersten Christen in ihrem Innersten bewegte. Sein Werk ist eine religionswissenschaftliche Beschreibung und Analyse des urchristlichen Glaubens. Es will weder rein deskriptiv die Theologie des Neuen Testaments beschreiben noch konfessorisch ihren Glauben durch Wiederholung beschworen, sondern die Kraft dieses Glaubens verstandlich machen. Theissen verfolgt dabei zwei Ziele: Einerseits untersucht er das Leben der Urchristen und stellt ihre theologischen Aussagen in semiotische, psychische und historische Zusammenhange. Auf diese Weise wird mit religionswissenschaftlichen Kategorien der Glaube, der Kult und das Ethos der fruhen Kirche sichtbar. Andererseits zeigt er, wie sich das fruhe Christentum vom Judentum fortentwickelte und eine autonome religiose Zeichensprache schuf, die eine ungewohnliche gemeinschaftsbildende Kraft hatte und die Geschichte umgestalt ete.

Mit dieser neuartigen Annaherung uberschreitet Gerd Theissen den nur innerkirchlichen Diskurs uber die Theologie des Neuen Testaments und macht urchristliches Leben und Denken auch denen zuganglich, die selbst der christlichen Weltdeutung fernstehen.

Thiessen, M.
Contesting Conversion. Genealogy, Circumcision, and Identity in Ancient Judaism and Christianity
Matthew Thiessen offers a nuanced study of the nature of Jewish thought with regard to Jewishness, circumcision, and conversion. Examining texts from the Hebrew Bible, Second Temple Judaism, and early Christianity, he gives a compelling account of the various forms of Judaism from which the early Christian movement arose. Beginning with analysis of the Hebrew Bible, Thiessen argues that there is no evidence that circumcision was considered to be a rite of conversion to Israelite religion. In fact, circumcision, particularly the infant circumcision practiced within Israelite and early Jewish society, excluded from the covenant those not properly descended from Abraham. In the Second Temple period, many Jews began to subscribe to a Jewishness that enabled Gentiles to become Jews. Other Jews found this definition of Jewishness problematic, and defended their own definition by reasserting a strictly genealogical conception of Jewish identity. As a result, some Gentiles who underwent conversion to Judaism in this period faced criticism because of their suspect genealogy. This examination of the way in which Jews in the Second Temple period perceived circumcision and conversion allows a deeper understanding of early Christianity. Contesting Conversion shows that careful attention to a definition of Jewishness that was based on genealogical descent has important implications for understanding the variegated nature of early Christian mission to the Gentiles in the first century C.E.

Thorsteinsson, R.M.
Roman Christianity and Roman Stoicism. A Comparative Study of Ancient Morality
Christianity is commonly held to have introduced an entirely new and better morality into the ancient world, a new morality that was decidedly universal, in contrast to the ethics of the philosophical schools which were only concerned with the intellectual few. Runar M. Thorsteinsson presents a challenge to this view by comparing Christian morality in first-century Rome with contemporary Stoic ethics in the city. Thorsteinsson introduces and discusses the moral teaching of Roman Stoicism; of Seneca, Musonius Rufus, and Epictetus. He then presents the moral teaching of Roman Christianity as it is represented in Paul's Letter to the Romans, the First Letter of Peter, and the First Letter of Clement. Having established the bases for his comparison, he examines the similarities and differences between Roman Stoicism and Roman Christianity in terms of morality. Five broad themes are used for the comparison, questions of Christian and Stoic views about: a particular morality or way of life as proper worship of the deity; certain individuals (like Jesus and Socrates) as paradigms for the proper way of life; the importance of mutual love and care; non-retaliation and 'love of enemies'; and the social dimension of ethics. This approach reveals a fundamental similarity between the moral teachings of Roman Christianity and Roman Stoicism. The most basic difference is found in the ethical scope of the two: While the latter teaches unqualified universal humanity, the former seems to condition the ethical scope in terms of religious adherence.

Ullucci, D.C.
The Christian Rejection of Animal Sacrifice
Sacrifice dominated the religious landscape of the ancient Mediterranean world for millennia, but its role and meaning changed dramatically in the fourth and fifth centuries with the rise of Christianity. Daniel Ullucci offers a new explanation of this remarkable transformation, in the process demonstrating the complexity of the concept of sacrifice in Roman, Greek, and Jewish religion. The Christian Rejection of Animal Sacrifice challenges the predominant scholarly model, which posits a connection between so-called critiques of sacrifice in non-Christian Greek, Latin, and Hebrew texts and the Christian rejection of animal sacrifice. According to this model, pre-Christian authors attacked the propriety of animal sacrifice as a religious practice, and Christians responded by replacing animal sacrifice with a pure, "spiritual" 'worship. This historical construction influences prevailing views of animal sacrifice even today, casting it as barbaric, backward, and primitive despite the fact that it is still practiced in such contemporary religions as Islam and Santeria. Rather than interpret the entire history of animal sacrifice through the lens of the Christian master narrative, Ullucci shows that the ancient texts must be seen not simply as critiques but as part of an ongoing competition between elite cultural producers to define the meaning and purpose of sacrifice. He reveals that Christian authors were not merely purveyors of pure spiritual religion, but a cultural elite vying for legitimacy and influence in societies that long predated them. The Christian Rejection of Animal Sacrifice is a crucial reinterpretation of the history of one of humanity's oldest and most fascinating rituals.

The Jewish Apocalyptic Heritage in Early Christianity
The question of apocalyptic influence on Jesus and early Christianity is again strongly contested. The issues connected with this question include terminology, genre, historical reconstruction, sectarian self-definition, and many others. This book provides a fresh assessment of the nature and significance of early Christian appropriation of Jewish apocalyptic material.

Op basis van jarenlang grondig onderzoek moet de mythische bijbelfiguur Jezus uiteindelijk plaatsmaken voor de historische figuur Jezus, een revolutionair.

Christian Beginnings: From Nazareth to Nicaea, Ad 30-325
The creation of the Christian Church is one of the most important stories in the development of the world's history, yet one of the least understood. With a forensic, brilliant re-examination of all the key surviving texts of early Christianity, Geza Vermes illuminates the origins of a faith and traces the evolution of the figure of Jesus from the man he was - a prophet in the tradition of other Jewish holy men of the Old Testament - to what he came to represent: a mysterious, otherworldly being at the heart of the official state religion of the Roman Empire.

Vos, Jacobus Cornelis de
Heiliges Land und Nähe Gottes. Wandlungen alttestamentlicher Landvorstellungen in frühjüdischen und neutestamentlichen Schriften
In allen frühjüdischen und neutestamentlichen Schriften bleibt die aus dem Alten Testament bekannte enge Verbundenheit von Gott, Volk und Land zumindest als Motiv erhalten. In den untersuchten Texten geht es bei "Land" allerdings in den wenigsten Fällen isoliert um das Land Israel, sondern fast immer um Land im Verhältnis zu Gott und dem Volk, das auch wieder in Beziehung zu seinem Gott steht. "Land" versteht sich hierbei als ein Raum, in dem sich die Nähe Gottes ereignen kann. Es kann das Land Israel sein mit dem Tempel als Ort par excellence für die postulierte Gottesgegenwart. Es kann aber auch ein Raum andernorts sein oder eben ein Raum, der nur oder hauptsächlich in der Vorstellung existiert. Vorstellungen vom Landbeeinflussen die Sicht auf das konkrete Land und umgekehrt. Das Land kann dabei idealisiert oder mythisiert werden oder in den aktuellen Wohnort außerhalb des Landes Israel, den Himmel oder in die Zukunft "ausgedehnt werden" oder gar "umziehen". Raum und Volk können unterschiedlich erscheinen, doch das Streben nach der Nähe Gottes ist den Texten beider Textgruppen gemein. Entsprechend ist jeder Raum der Gottespräsenz auch ein sozialer Raum, ein Identitätsraum für das Volk, das sich seinem Gott zugehörig fühlt. Somit geht es bei dem Begriff "Land" bzw. bei der Kennzeichnung das Land im religiösen und theologischen Kontext um eine Ausrichtung auf seine heilige Mitte, die Gott ist. Jeder Raum dieser Funktion, ob konkret oder mental, wird damit in gewissem Sinn zu einem heiligen Land für seine "Bewohner".

Wainwright, E.M.
Women Healing / Healing Women
The impetus for this book was the startling realization that within early Christianity, which is characterised by healing, no women are explicitly commissioned to heal. The work begins, therefore, with a search for the women who were healers in the Graeco-Roman world of the late Hellenistic and early Roman period, finding them honoured in inscriptions, named by medical writers, and stereotyped by playwrights and other literateurs. What emerges, therefore, by the first century of the Common Era, is a world in which women functioned as healers as well as healed and that healing was a site of contestation in relation to gender. The interpretive lens brought to bear on the wide range of sources used in this study is a multi-dimensional one informed by feminism, post-colonialism and ecological studies. The methodology is socio-rhetorical drawing on tools from medical anthropology. The turning of the multi-dimensional lens and these tools on the gospels, informed by the context constructed in the first part of the study, enables new interpretations of the stories of women healing to emerge. A woman pours out healing ointment; healed women bear on their bodies the language describing Jesus; and the stereo-typed demon-possessed women of the Lucan gospel may, indeed, be healers.
