This volume presents 54 names of the Hebrew Bible (including the chapters in Aramaic) which can be derived from Iranian languages. Also 17 other names are included in the book, which do not have an Iranian etymology, but they had been interpreted as Iranian in previous research. This new reference work of Iranian names in the Bible can fully replace the treatment of these names given by Ferdinand Justi's Iranisches Namenbuch (1895) and by Isidor Scheftelowitz (Arisches im Alten Testament I, Königsberg 1901) which are - though outdated in many cases - still frequently quoted in Biblical studies. For all 71 names the Biblical references and the form of the name in the Septuaginta are given, followed by - mostly short - prosopographical information. The longest section for each name is the discussion of the etymological interpretation of the name, including also possible derivations from Semitic languages. The book concludes with detailed indices. The volume will be of interest both to specialists in studies of the Hebrew Bible and of Iranian languages.

German description: Der Band verbucht insgesamt 54 Namen der Hebräischen Bibel (einschlieálich der Abschnitte in Aramäisch), f|r die eine iranische Deutung sicher oder plausibel ist; ferner werden 17 Namen kritisch diskutiert, f|r die in der Forschung unterschiedliche iranische Herleitungen vorgeschlagen wurden, die jedoch abzulehnen sind. Mit dem Band liegt somit ein verlässliches Referenzwerk vor, durch das die Einträge dieser Namen in Ferdinand Justis ""Iranischem Namenbuch"" (1895) und die Analyse von Isidor Scheftelowitz (""Arisches im Alten Testament I"", Königsberg 1901), auf die in Studien zur Bibel im letzten Jahrhundert regelmäáig verwiesen wurde, |berholt sind. F|r alle 71 Namen werden - soweit eine Entsprechung vorliegt - f|r spätere Studien die Namensform der Septuaginta sowie die Belege nachgewiesen. Nach in der Regel kurzen Angaben zur Prosopographie liegt der Schwerpunkt des Textes in der Diskussion der etymologischen Deutungsmöglichkeit(en), wobei auch Herleitungen der Namen aus semitischem Sprachgut evaluiert werden. Ausf|hrliche Register erschlieáen das onomastische Vergleichsmaterial. Neben dem Ertrag f|r die Iranistik ist der Band von besonderem Interesse f|r die Bibelwissenschaften.

Book Description Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: V&R unipress | If language, if any language, lacks the words to express the experience of the concentration camps, how does one write the unspeakable? How can it then be translated? This book analyses the complexities involved in translating literature about the Holocaust. It includes essays about Italian, German, French, Hungarian, and Spanish Holocaust literature. | In his testimony on his survival in Auschwitz Primo Levi said "our language lacks words to express this offense, the demolition of a man". If language, if any language, lacks the words to express the experience of the concentration camps, how does one write the unspeakable? How can it then be translated? The limits of representation and translation seem to be closely linked when it comes to writing about the Holocaust - whether as fiction, memoir, testimony - a phenomenon the current study examines. While there is a spate of literature about the impossibility to represent the Holocaust , not much has been written on the links between translation in its specific linguistic sense, translation studies, and the Holocaust, a niche this volume aims to fill. | Format: Hardback | 347 gr | 238x157x10 mm | 156 pp. Seller Inventory # K9783847105015
