Why aren't Jewish women circumcised? : gender and covenant in Judaism by Shaye J. D Cohen( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2015 in English and French and held by 1,976 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why aren't Jewish women circumcised? This improbable question, first advanced by anti-Jewish Christian polemicists, is the point of departure for Shaye J. D. Cohen's exploration of gender and Jewishness in Jewish thought. With a command of an array of sources - from the Bible and the Talmud to legal and philosophical writings of the Middle Ages to works by Enlightenment thinkers and modern scholars - Cohen considers the responses to this provocative question and in the process provides the fullest cultural history of Jewish circumcision available."--BOOK JACKET

Josephus in Galilee and Rome : his vita and development as a historian by Shaye J. D Cohen( Book )

21 editions published between 1975 and 2002 in English and Multiple languages and held by 594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In both Bellum Judaicum and the Vita, an appendix to Antiquitates Judaicae, Josephus deals with his own role in the war. Although both works have apologetic aims, Josephus changes his story from one work to the next. By viewing these two works in the greater context of Josephus's life and not in isolation from each other, Cohen traces Josephus's development as a historian, as an apologist, and as a Jew. --from publisher description

From the Maccabees to the Mishnah by Shaye J. D Cohen( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new edition of a best-selling classic, Shaye Cohen offers a thorough analysis of Judaism's development from the early years of the Roman Empire to the formative period of rabbinic Judaism. Cohen's synthesis of religion, literature, and history offers deep insight into the nature of Judaism at this key period, including the relationship between Jews and Gentiles, the function of Jewish religion in the larger community, and the development of normative Judaism and other Jewish sects. In addition, Cohen provides clear explanations concerning the formation of the biblical canon and the roots of rabbinic Judaism. Now completely updated and revised, this book remains the clearest introduction to the era that shaped Judaism and provided the context for early Christianity."--Jacket

Hauptbeschreibung This volume collects thirty essays by Shaye J.D. Cohen. First published between 1980 and 2006, these essays deal with a wide variety of themes and texts: Jewish Hellenism; Josephus; the Synagogue; Conversion to Judaism; Blood and Impurity; the boundary between Judaism and Christianity. What unites them is their philological orientation. Many of these essays are close studies of obscure passages in Jewish and Christian texts. The essays are united too by their common assumption that the ancient world was a single cultural continuum; that ancient Judaism, in all its expr
