9783525540299: Jerusalem und der eine Gott: Eine Religionsgeschichte (German Edition)

Few famous cities have been so controversial over time as Jerusalem. Rarely has it been ruled by leaders from its own ranks, and long is the list of foreign powers that have ruled over it, stretching all the way back to Biblical times. There was a near-endless coming and going of Egyptians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Ptolemies, Seleucids, and Romans. And the same important question occurred again and again to the inhabitants of Jerusalem: How should they react to the new rulers and their respective culture? Various forms of adaptation and resistance emerged. The role of Jerusalem as a important site of world history, however, does not go back to the many and turbulent political upheavals, the growth and decline of territories, but to the fact that it was the birthplace of monotheism, a decisive element in the religions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam all of which do not have the best reputation today. In many circles polytheistic systems with their plentitude of gods enjoy more sympathy.
Othmar Keel has been active scientifically for over 50 years. Here he describes in short vignettes how the Israeli-Jewish monotheism absorbed many experiences, symbols and insights from poly-theistic religions and integrated them into its global vision. To this end, Keel masterfully employs both Biblical and non-Biblical texts and sources as well as archaeological and iconographic findings. Particularly the latter are heavily represented in his descriptions and are the source of many surprising facts.

Book Description Vandehoeck Rupprecht, Germany, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd. Language: German . Brand New Book. Wenige beruhmte Stadte waren im Lauf ihrer Geschichte so umstritten wie Jerusalem. Selten wurde die Stadt von Herrschern aus ihren Reihen regiert. Lang ist die Liste der fremden Machte, die uber sie geherrscht haben, schon in biblischer Zeit. Agypter, Assyrer, Babylonier, Perser, Ptolemaer, Seleukiden und Romer haben einander abgelost. Immer wieder stellte sich die drangende Frage, wie man sich den neuen Herrschern und ihrer Kultur gegenuber verhalten soll. Unterschiedlichste Formen von Anpassung und Widerstand wurden praktiziert. Seine weltgeschichtliche Bedeutung verdankt die Stadt aber nicht den turbulenten politischen Auseinandersetzungen, dem Wachsen und Schrumpfen ihres Territoriums, sondern der Tatsache, der Geburtsort jenes Monotheismus geworden zu sein, der zu einem wesentlichen Element des Judentums, des Christentums und des Islam wurde. Diese monotheistischen Religionen erfreuen sich heute nicht eines besonders guten Rufs. In breiten Kreisen geniessen polytheistische Systeme mit ihrer Vielzahl von Gottheiten mehr Sympathie.Der seit 50 Jahren wissenschaftlich tatige Othmar Keel skizziert in knappen Strichen, wie der israelitisch-judische Monotheismus bei seiner Entstehung viele Erfahrungen, Symbole und Erkenntnisse polytheistischer Religionen aufgenommen und in seine globale Vision integriert hat. Das zu zeigen verwendet Keel ebenso souveran biblische wie ausserbiblische Texte, archaologische wie neueste ikonographische Funde. Besonders letztere kommen in seiner Darstellung stark zum Zug und fuhren wiederholt zu uberraschend neuen Einsichten. Bookseller Inventory # LIB9783525540299
