Israel and the Cosmological Empires of the Ancient Orient

Symbols of Order in Eric Voegelin’s Order and History, Vol. I


Since the publication of the German edition of Israel and Revelation a noteworthy turnaround in the method of conducting research on this book has taken place.
The innovation consisted of bringing its interdisciplinary nature into greater relief, an aim which is further pursued by the essays collected in the present volume. Its four thematic sections focus respectively on civilization forms, on the order of human history, on specific aspects of Old Testament exegesis, and finally on the meaning of the term “revelation” in the context of the biblical events narrated.

"[This] publication, motivated by the sixtieth anniversary of IR’s first publication in 1956, will enable the seasoned Voegelin scholar and reader to see how a “younger” or “new” generation is receiving ["Israel and Revelation"], and it will enable those interested in “dipping into” this inaugural volume of Voegelin’s central œuvre a sense of its varied dimensions."
