A Facsimile Edition
The oldest complete Hebrew Bible in the world is the Leningrad Codex. Housed in the Saltykov-Shchedrin State Public Library in St. Petersburg, Russia, and dating to 1009 C.E., the Leningrad Codex stands as the single most important extant manuscript for establishing the text of the Hebrew Bible and is the basis for virtually all critical editions of the Hebrew Bible.
In a landmark publishing event in biblical scholarship, the Leningrad Codex is now available for the first time in a facsimile edition. This beautiful scholar's edition of the Leningrad Codex, produced under the auspices of the University of Michigan in cooperation and consultation with the Ancient Biblical Manuscript Center and West Semitic Research Project, features a high quality 25,4 x 30,5 cm. hardcover format that includes sixteen full-color illuminated carpet pages that capture in precise detail the Codex's lovely medieval artwork.
The exiles of Israel and Judah cast a long shadow over the biblical text and the whole subsequent history of Judaism. Scholars have long recognized the importance of the theme of exile for the Hebrew Bible. Indeed, critical study of the Old Testament has, at least since Wellhausen, been dominated by the Babylonian exile of Judah. In 586 BC, several factors, including the destruction of Jerusalem, the cessation of the sacrificial cult and of the monarchy, and the experience of the exile, began to cause a transformation of Israelite religion which supplied the contours of the larger Judaic framework within which the various forms of Judaism, including the early Christian movement, developed.
Given the importance of the exile to the development of Judaism and Christianity even to the present day, this volume delves into the conceptions of exile which contributed to that development during the formative period.
Religionshermeneutische Studien zur Konstruktion von Norm und Abweichung
Series:  Kulte / Kulturen
Die Problemlagen, die das Aufkommen der Unterscheidung von Orthodoxie und Häresie bedingen, die Konstruktion der Unterscheidung und ihre paradoxen Folgewirkungen bilden den Gegenstand der im vorliegenden Band versammelten Studien renommierter Wissenschaftler aus unterschiedlichsten Fachgebieten. Mit ihrer Hilfe wurde bewußt versucht, die eingeschränkte Perspektive auf das frühe Christentum um Untersuchungen aus anderen Kulturen und Zeiten zu erweitern. Kulturell, um zu erfahren, ob und in welcher Form sich die Vorstellungen von Häresie auch in Religionskulturen Vorderasiens und Ostasiens finden. Zeitlich, um bessere Kenntnis darüber zu erlangen, ob sich der Gegensatz von Häresie und Orthodoxie in der Neuzeit und in der Moderne aufzulösen begonnen hat, oder ob er eher in andere Sphären Einzug hielt.
