9781845530846: Sectarianism in Early Judaism: Sociological Advances (BibleWorld)

'Sectarianism in Early Judaism' applies recent developments in sociological analysis to sect formation and development in early Judaism. The essays examine sectarianism in a wide range of different forms: the many layers of redaction in religious texts; the development arcs of sectarian groups; the role of sectarianism across Jewish history as well as in the time of the Second Temple; and the relations within and between sects and between sects and wider society. The book aims to establish a conceptual framework for the analysis of sects and, in doing so, makes particular use of the work of Max Weber and Bryan Wilson, exploring the limits of their typologies and sociological theories.

About the Author:

David J. Chalcraft studied Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield before carrying out postgraduate research at the University of Oxford under the supervision of the late Bryan Wilson. He is Professor of Classical Sociology at the University of Derby and a Visiting Fellow at Lancaster University (2003-5). A recognised expert on Max Weber, being a founding co-editor of Max Weber Studies, his research explores the interface between sociology and biblical studies, utilising the exegetical methods of the latter in interpreting classical sociology and tracing biblical ideas in sociological texts on the one hand, and the theoretical insights of the former in interrogating biblical texts and social formations, and considering the role of the Bible in culture and society, on the other.

Review:

"One of the most important books recently compiled for the improved understanding of Judaism in the late Second Temple period." - George J. Brooke, University of Manchester "This collection of papers should not be missed by anyone seriously interested in the emergence of Judaism in its different configurations, the intellectual and religious history of the Second Temple period, the Qumran sectarian writings, and the sociology of religion in general." - Joseph Blenkinsopp, University of Notre Dame "An important book on early Judaism, edited by a professional sociologist." - International Review of Biblical Studies "There is much to be learned from this volume, and while it might not serve as a textbook for an undergraduate course, it is to be recommended to all who have an interest in community formation visible behind ancient texts, whether Jewish or Christian." - Review of Biblical Literature
