Funerary Artifacts from Roman Ashkelon and the Rockefeller Collections

Funerary Artifacts from Roman Ashkelon and the Rockefeller Collections  

Tali Erickson-Gini and Alegre Savariego 

In 2019, an excavation carried out at the site of Er-Rasm, located ca. 2 km southeast of Tel Ashkelon, revealed evidence of a cemetery of the second to mid-fourth century CE in an area that was built over by a monastic community in the fifth century CE. The finds from the cemetery, a lead coffin decorated with vine scrolls and birds in repeating panels and associated artifacts such as gold threads, are comparable to those unearthed in the same general area in 1926 at Khirbet Khasis, as well as to other lead coffins found in Jerusalem and Ashdod-Yam. In addition, parts of a marble sarcophagus with carved features were discovered at Er-Rasm. These features indicate that the sarcophagus was carved with the scene of the abduction of Persephone, just like the complete example uncovered elsewhere in Ashkelon in 1972.

Open Access Journal: Corpus Masoreticum Working Papers

Die "Corpus Masoreticum Working Papers" sind das Publikationsorgan des gleichnamigen von der DFG seit 2018 geförderten Langzeitprojektes. In regelmäßigem, aber nicht festgeschriebenem Turnus sollen Beiträge zur jüdischen Bibeltextforschung und Bibelauslegung, Masora, Editionstheorie, Manuskriptforschung sowie zu Themen der Digital Humanities und verwandten Feldern veröffentlicht werden. Autor*innen werden dabei in der Regel die Projektangehörigen sein, die damit vom Umfang her kleine bis mittelgroße (Teil-) Ergebnisse der Editionsarbeit und ihrer Forschungen publizieren. Andere Forscher:innen sind aber ebenfalls eingeladen, zu unseren projektnahen Themen an dieser Stelle zu publizieren.

Die Masora zur Hebräischen Bibel liegt heute in verschiedenen Rezensionen innerhalb und außerhalb der Bibelcodices vor, von denen bis heute ausschließlich die orientalische Tradition anteilig bearbeitet und allgemein beachtet wird. Ziel des Langzeitprojektes ist die erstmalige Aufarbeitung der westeuropäischen (ashkenasischen) Masoratradition zwischen dem 11. und 13. Jh, die sich von der orientalischen Masora nicht nur philologisch unterscheidet, sondern bereits in ihrem äußeren Erscheinungsbild als masora figurata darauf hinweist, dass die Masora unter den Juden Westeuropas in ganz eigener Weise rezipiert wurde als dies in der orientalisch sefardischen Gelehrtenkultur der Fall war. Die ashkenasischen Juden suchten mit exegetischen und künstlerischen Mitteln, die masoretische Tradition der orientalischen Codices und damit jene in Auseinandersetzung mit dem Islam entwickelte sprachwissenschaftlich grammatische Wissenstradition in das durch die rabbinische Gelehrtenkultur bestimmte religiöse Denken Westeuropas zu integrieren. Dieser Inkulturationsprozess der Masora ist ohne die Auseinandersetzung mit der christlichen Umwelt (Bibelauslegung, Ikonographie, Buchmalerei, und Architektur) nicht denkbar. Die hier avisierten Ergebnisse werfen ein neues Licht a  uf die europäische Geschichte des masoretischen Bibeltextes und seiner Auslegung und liefern damit wichtige wissenschaftliche Impulse nicht nur für die Jüdischen Studien, sondern auch für die jüdische und christliche Theologie sowie die mittelalterliche Kunstgeschichte. Die philologische Arbeit ist dabei in Zusammenarbeit mit der UB Heidelberg in eine digitale Arbeitsumgebung integriert (BIMA 2.0. Biblical Masora Database).

Open Access Journal: Teiresias Journal Online

ISSN: 2751-6946

Teiresias Journal Online continues the previous Teiresias. Online Review and Bibliography of Boiotian Studies by means of a new series. Faithful to the pioneering spirit of its predecessor, which has been an open access publication from 1971, TJO is free from subscription fees. It is published twice a year. Issues can be downloaded from this platform and shared freely.

The mission of the journal is to inform readers about research on Boiotia in antiquity. To this end, and to fuse exchanges with references to scholarship in various languages, the core of TJO is its bibliography. Like the ‘old’ Teiresias, the new sequel also publishes archaeological reports, announcements of scholarly events and a Work in Progress section. Coupled with the book series Teiresias Supplements Online, TJO comes out of the Department of Ancient History at Münster University.

The TJO editors acknowledge and honor the scholarship of Albert Schachter, doyen of Boiotian Studies and oikistes of the Teiresias enterprise.
