The Land Between Two Seas: Art on the Move in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea 1300-1700 focuses on the strong riverine ties that connect the seas of the Mediterranean system (from the Western Mediterranean through the Sea of Marmara, the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov) and their hinterland. Addressing the mediating role of the Balkans between East and West all the way to Poland and Lithuania, as well as this region’s contribution to the larger Mediterranean artistic and cultural melting pot, this innovative volume explores ideas, artworks and stories that moved through these territories linking the cultures of Central Asia with those of western Europe.

This study brings together all ancient evidence to tell the story of the divine name, YHWH, as it travels in Aramaic, Hebrew, and Greek through the Second Temple period, the most formative era of Judaism.
During the Second Temple period (516 BCE–70 CE), Jews became reticent to speak and write the divine name, YHWH, also known by its four letters in Greek as the tetragrammaton. Priestly, pious, and scribal circles limitted the use of God’s name, and then it disappeared. The variables are poorly understood and the evidence is scattered. This study brings together all ancient Jewish literary and epigraphic evidence in Aramaic, Hebrew, and Greek to describe how, when, and in what sources Jews either used or avoided the divine name. Instead of a diachronic contrast from use to avoidance, as is often the scholarly assumption, the evidence suggests diverse and overlapping naming practices that draw specific meaning from linguistic, geographic, and social contexts.
Es liegt seit je in der Natur des Menschen, mittels von Orakelsprüchen sowie mantischer Praktiken die Zukunft für das eigene Handeln zu erkunden. Auf einer anderen Stufe tritt der Prophet als Träger des Wortes Gottes auf, er verkündet den Willen der Gottheit, um so dessen Gegenwart den Menschen erfahrbar zu machen.
Parusie bedeutet also die Anwesenheit einer Gottheit, wie sie sich im Hellenismus vor allem an dem Phänomen der Epiphanie dokumentieren lässt. Im Neuen Testament meint Parusie dagegen die machtvolle Wiederkunft des Menschensohnes am Himmel zum Weltgericht.
Der Sammelband vereinigt 25 Beiträge von Altphilologen, Althistorikern, Archäologen, Religionswissenschaftlern und Theologen, um von Homer im 8. vorchristlichen Jahrhundert bis zu Augustin in der Spätantike eine Entwicklungslinie unter Beachtung der spezifischen Schlüsselbegriffe aufzuzeigen.
Einen Schwerpunkt bildet hierbei die Genese der Begriffe im frühen Christentum, wobei es auf den Nachweis ankommt, dass das Christentum auch ein Teil der griechisch-römischen Antike ist.
