Adulterous nations : family politics and national anxiety in the European novel by Tatiana Kuzmic( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation examines the figure of the adulterous heroine of the nineteenth-century European novel as a symbol of national anxieties. The gendering of a nation or a nation-like collectivity as female has a long history, evident in expressions such as "Mother Earth" or "Mother Russia" and in myths considered foundational to modern European literature, such as Europa's abduction by Zeus or the Hebrew prophets' personification of Israel as an adulterous woman. The nineteenth century realist novel, written from within the newly emerged category of the nation-state, is especially rich in intersections of gender relations and national belonging, and it is no coincidence that adultery appears as the prevalent topic. Set in the 1830s milieu of the First Reform Bill and the Catholic Question, the love triangle in George Eliot's Middlemarch explores national boundaries through a romantic Polish rebel, who not only wins the girl, but a seat in Parliament by the end of the novel. Fontane's Effi Briest, by contrast, is set in the recently unified Germany, where Poland is too close to home to be romanticized. Effi's slighted husband, a high ranking official in Bismarck's service, kills his rival in an old-fashioned duel, while the shamed Effi returns to her parents' house, where she falls ill and dies. Lev Tolstoy's Anna Karenina reveals the anxieties of an empire stretched in too many directions. The Eastern Crisis is symbolized through the heroine's mangled body and her grieving lover's joining of the volunteer movement against Turkey, while Levin offers a solution to blurring boundaries by withdrawing into the country. August Senoa's The Goldsmith's Gold allegorizes Croatian political conflicts by placing the hero in a love triangle between a peasant girl, who represents the embodiment of both sexual and national purity, and a wealthy blond Germanic femme fatale, who breaks up the impending union of the first two

Kol nidre : studies in the development of rabbinic votive institutions by Moshe Benovitz( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an introduction to the laws of oaths and vows of various types as they appear in biblical, Second Temple, and rabbinic sources. These institutions developed over time, and the oaths and vows mentioned in Second Temple literature should not be understood in light of subsequent rabbinic development. On the contrary: it is precisely the Second Temple texts, however obscure they may be, that provide the clues toward understanding the evolution of these institutions in rabbinic literature."--Provided by publisher

Saldarini's study examines the literary connections between these related documents while at the same time drawing larger conclusions about their provenance and what they contribute to our understanding of early rabbinic scholasticism"--Provided by publisher

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 658 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An "analysis of gender not only in the biblical (Apocrypha) book of Sirach but in literature from the Second Temple period more broadly.

Ben Sira's teaching on friendship by Jeremy Corley( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The purpose of this study is to elucidate Ben Sira's teaching on friendship within the religious and cultural context of his time, in view of the Hellenistic emphasis on philia ("friendship"). While friendship is of contemporary interest, until recently there has been little research into the understanding of friendship in Second Temple Judaism. This study aims to fill the lacuna by focusing on the apocryphal/deuterocanonical Wisdom of Ben Sira (Sirach). In fact, no book of the Hebrew Bible says as much about friendship as does the Wisdom of Ben Sira."--Provided by publisher
Sectarian law in the Dead Sea scrolls : courts, testimony, and the penal code by Lawrence H Schiffman( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume examines the sectarian legal system, specifically its courts, court proƯcedure, rules of testimony and the Penal Code. Schiffman argues that the legal system portrayed in the scrolls coheres organically with the community's theological outlook and idealized vision of itself. His argument thus challenges attempts to see the scrolls as having been produced by multiple groups, randomly collected and preserved."--Provided by publisher

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 654 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From rebuke to consolation : exegesis and theology in the liturgical anthology of the Ninth of Av season by Elsie R Stern( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contributes to the ongoing research into the emergence of rabbinic Judaism in the synagogue setting through a study of one constellation of rabbinic and synagogue literature, the sequence of prophetic lectionary texts designated for the Sabbaths surrounding Tisha b' Av, and the midrashirn, piyyutim and targumic texts that interpret them. An analysis of this literary constellation allows us to better understand two dynamics that are relevant to the discussion of the development of rabbinic Judaism in the late antique synagogue: a) the relationship between the rabbinic Judaism that was propagated in the synagogue and the non-rabbinic synagogue culture that the rabbis encountered and interacted with there; b) the relationship between rabbinic literature that was composed by sages for their rabbinic colleagues and students, and rabbinic literature that was directed toward a wider Jewish lay audience as it was imagined by the rabbis

Babylonian witchcraft literature : case studies by I. Tzvi Abusch( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The studies in this volume focus on individual Babylonian magical texts while developing an overall understanding of these texts as a whole. Part One follows a diachronic approach, Part Two a synchronic one. In this sense, the studies are to be viewed broadly: while unravelling knots in individual texts, they highlight certain issues and exemplify some solutions for common problems in traditional Mesopotamian therapeutic literature."--Provided by publisher

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
