Description
Summary:The volume brings together essays that explore the topic of memory and remembrance in the ancient world, taking into account the Hebrew Bible, ancient Judaism, the classical world, the New Testament and Early Christianity . The essays, which focus on a wide range of sources from antiquity, open up new questions about the social and religious function of memory. As a collection, they demonstrate how much social memory theory can contribute to the understanding of the ways ancient texts were, on the one hand, shaped by conventions of memory and, on the other hand, participated in and contributed to evolving strategies for reading "the past".Contributors:Loren T. Stuckenbruck, Stephen C. Barton, Benjamin G. Wold, Joachim Schaper, Erhard Blum, Hermann Lichtenberger, William Horbury, John M.G. Barclay, Doron Mendels, Anthony Le Donne, James D.G. Dunn, Martin Hengel, Ulrike Mittmann-Richert, Anna Maria Schwemer, Hans-Joachim Eckstein, Markus Bockmuehl - How did notions of memory develop and function in the ancient world? The authors of the essays collected here address this question on the basis of studies in Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, ancient Judaism, the classical world, the New Testament and early Christianity.
