Produktbeschreibung
This volume stems from a conference held at Princeton University, which brought together leading scholars in the study of ancient religions. Claims to divine revelation are not simply a common trope in ancient religious texts: they often determine the structure of these texts and of the communities that produce them. The authors of the studies collected here examine the literary and social functions of revelation in late antiquity from early Christianity and rabbinic Judaism to early Islam, contributing both to our understanding of the phenomenon of revelation as well as to the study of the great transformations, interactions, and tensions typical of this important period.With contributions by: Pavlos Avlamis, Patricia Crone, Martha Himmelfarb, Eduard Iricinschi, Michael Pregill, Annette Reed, Daniel Schwartz, Gregory Shaw, Philippa Townsend, Christine Trevett, John Turner, Azzan Yadin, Yuhan Vevaina, Moulie Vidas
