About this title

Synopsis:

One of the major - and complicating - characteristics of the antique Middle East is the interconnection between the Semitic and Greco-Roman cultures. The current volume brings together studies which relate to the multi-cultural traditions of papyrus writing, with special attention regarding the linguistic, literary, and cultural features of these, often documentary texts. Originally presented at a conference in honour of the retirement of Professor Baruch A. Levine, Skirball Professor Emeritus of Biblical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies (New York University). Important for students of the Greco-Roman world and the Near East in Late Antiquity.

About the Author:

Lawrence H. Schiffman is Edelman Professor of Hebrew and Judaic Studies and Chair, Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies at New York University. He is an expert on Jewish law in Late Antiquity and the Dead Sea Scrolls, and he has recently edited the two-volume Encyclopedia of the Dead Sea Scrolls (OUP, 2000).
