9780773447493: The Five Exotic Scrolls of the Hebrew Bible: The Prominence, Literary Structure, and Liturgical Significance of the Megilloth

This work is a comprehensive, advanced introduction to the five books or scrolls in the "Hebrew Bible" ("Song of Solomon"; "Ruth"; "Lamentations"; "Ecciesiastes"; and "Esther") that constitute the "Megilloth", a distinctive minor collection within the canon of the "Hebrew Bible". "The Megilloth" represents the scrolls read liturgically at five annual festivals in the Jewish tradition: Passover, Shavuoth, the Ninth of Ab, Sukkoth, and Purim. In the style of the classical Einleitungen, this work treats in depth the provenance, pre-history, transmission and redactional development, text and canon, contents, genre, literary structure, interpretation, special issues, and theological and liturgical significance of each of the five books, as well as of the "Megilloth" itself as a distinct collection within the "Hebrew Bible". With up-to-date bibliography and indexes, the "Five Exotic Scrolls" provides the first scholarly reference introduction to the "Megilloth" to be published in English. This work will appeal to biblical and theological scholars who are interested in the "Megilloth" or individual books within it.
