Title: Toledot Yeshu: Life Story TSAJ 159 2vols

Publisher: Mohr Siebeck

Binding: Hardcover/Hardback

Book Condition: New

Description:

Toledot Yeshu (The Life Story of Jesus) is a satirical counter-history presenting a biography of Jesus from a negative and anti-Christian perspective. It ascribes to Jesus an illegitimate birth, a theft of the Ineffable Name, heretic activities, and finally a disgraceful death. The narrative is transmitted in ca. 150 extant manuscripts, mostly in Hebrew but also in Aramaic, Judeo-Arabic, Yiddish, Ladino, and Judeo-Persian. All Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts are edited in the present book and database: an unusual combination of a traditional critical edition with an electronic research tool. The book also includes a translation of selected manuscripts of all major recensions and an analytic introduction discussing the origins and evolution of the narrative's microforms. The database features a full-text search of all manuscripts as well as printing and downloading capabilities. The price includes access to the database (for one simultaneous user). Access for institutions is provided through the IP address, for private individuals through username and password. An activation code is enclosed in the book. Access to a free seven day trial period can be obtained here: toledot@mohr.de. Bookseller Inventory # MEETOLEDO
