Description:

The use of biblical and parabiblical texts on amulets and other apotropaic objects was ubiquitous in late antique Egypt. Among the passages most frequently cited were the opening lines ( incipits ) of the Gospels, the Psalms, and other scriptural texts. Scholars have repeatedly observed the apotropaic use of such incipits , but have yet to subject them to thorough and focused analysis. In the present volume, Joseph E. Sanzo addresses this scholarly need by offering the first sustained study of the scriptural incipits on Greek and Coptic amulets and other apotropaic objects from late antique Egypt. In addition to providing a catalog and edition of these texts, the author draws on insights from cognitive linguistics, ritual studies, and the history of the book to establish a typology of the incipits and to determine their ritual functions.

Book Description Tübingen, Mohr Siebeck, 2014. Gr.-8°, Brosch. XIV, 219 S. Neuwertiges Ex. / Fine Copy // Die Verwendung biblischer und parabiblischer Texte auf Amuletten und anderen apotropäischen Objekten war im spätantiken Ägypten allgegenwärtig. Zu den am häufigsten zitierten Textstellen gehörten die Eröffnungszeilen ( Incipits ) der Evangelien, der Psalmen und anderer biblischer Texte. Es wurden bereits wiederholt die apotropäische Verwendung solcher Incipits untersucht, eine gründliche und gezielte Analyse steht jedoch noch aus. Im vorliegenden Band befasst sich Joseph E. Sanzo mit diesen offenen Fragen, indem er die erste nachhaltige Untersuchung von biblischen Incipits auf griechischen und koptischen Amuletten und anderen apotropäischen Objekten aus dem spätantiken Ägypten liefert. Neben der Katalogisierung und Edition dieser Texte zieht der Autor Erkenntnisse aus der Kognitiven Linguistik, aus Ritus-Studien und der Geschichte des Buches, um eine Typologie der Incipits zu schaffen und ihre rituelle Funktion festzustellen.
