An essential resource exploring orality and literacy in the pre-Hellenistic Southern Levant and the Hebrew Bible

Situated historically between the invention of the alphabet, on the one hand, and the creation of ancient Israel's sacred writings, on the other, is the emergence of literary production in the ancient Levant. In this timely collection of essays by an international cadre of scholars, the dialectic between the oral and the written, the intersection of orality with literacy, and the advent of literary compositions are each explored as a prelude to the emergence of what would become the biblical writings of ancient Israel and Judah. Contributors also examine a range of relevant topics including scripturalization, the compositional dimensions of orality and textuality as they engage biblical poetry, prophecy, and narrative along with their antecedents, and the ultimate autonomy of the written in early Israel.

The contributors are James M. Bos, David M. Carr, André Lemaire, Robert D. Miller II, Nadav Na aman, Raymond F. Person Jr., Frank H. Polak, Christopher A. Rollston, Seth L. Sanders, Joachim Schaper, Brian B. Schmidt, William M. Schniedewind, Elsie Stern, and Jessica Whisenant.

    Book Description SBL Press, United States, 2015. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This collection of essays by researchers and internationally recognized scholars addresses the emergence of literary production in the southern Levant. Essays focus on both the development of extensive works as the consequential interplay between orality and literacy and on such productions as prelude to the creation of lengthy compositions in ancient Israel and Judah. These lengthy compositions either represent the most likely progenitors of writings eventually recognized as authoritative religious texts or perhaps were themselves recognized as authoritative by succeeding Jewish communities. The contributors address when, by whom, in what form, and under what circumstances larger written productions such as public display inscriptions, for example, or more fittingly, sizeable scrolls would have been initially executed.
