The text Miqṣat Ma῾aśe Ha-Torah, Some of the Works of the Torah (4QMMT), is one of the most interesting texts among the famous Dead Sea Scrolls discovered near the settlement of Khirbet Qumran and its vicinity in the middle of the twentieth century and by now published in full. It is a writing in the form of a letter by an unknown author to an equally unknown addressee, written in second person singular and plural. This document is the earliest evidence of a proper interpretation of the Jewish Torah, the so-called Halakhah, from pre-Christian, Hellenistic times as it later became customary and widely attested in rabbinical Judaism. This volume – after a short introduction on the findings at the Dead Sea in general and the text Miqṣat Ma῾aśe Ha-Torah in particular – provides a new edition and translation as well as several contributions from renowned scholars on the manuscripts, the language and content plus literary and historical contexts of this writing.

The Valediction of Moses: A Proto-Biblical Book

 The Valediction of Moses

Moses Wilhelm Shapira's infamous Deuteronomy fragments – long believed to be forgeries – are authentic ancient manuscripts, and they are of far greater significance than ever imagined. The literary work that these manuscripts preserve – which Idan Dershowitz calls »The Valediction of Moses« or »V« – is not based on the book of Deuteronomy. On the contrary, V is a much earlier version of Deuteronomy. In other words, V is a proto-biblical book, the likes of which has never before been seen. This conclusion is supported by a series of philological analyses, as well as previously unknown archival documents, which undermine the consensus on these manuscripts. An excursus co-authored with Na'ama Pat-El assesses V's linguistic profile, finding it to be consistent with Iron Age epigraphic Hebrew.
V contains early versions of passages whose biblical counterparts reflect substantial post-Priestly updating. Moreover, unlike the canonical narratives of Deuteronomy, this ancient work shows no signs of influence from the Deuteronomic law code. Indeed, V preserves an earlier, and dramatically different, literary structure for the entire work – one that lacks the Deuteronomic law code altogether.
These findings have significant consequences for the composition history of the Bible, historical linguistics, the history of religion, paleography, archaeology, and more. The volume includes a full critical edition and English translation of V.


Thucydides in the ‘Age of Extremes’ and Beyond. Academia and Politics

Edited by Luca Iori and Ivan Matijašić 

ISBN 978-1-8380018-4-1

The essays collected in this volume explore over a century of readings of Thucydides, from the years immediately preceding the First World War up to the present day. Our purpose is to reflect on some underexplored areas of Thucydidean reception within different academic traditions and political contexts, as well as reconsidering the more recent and controversial developments in the Fortleben of the Athenian historian in the fields of Strategic Studies and International Relations. The interaction between politics and academic practice is the thread that connects our collective efforts. We seek to adopt an approach that is less confined to the reuse of an ancient text in a merely political vein, but opens up to investigate wider issues concerning the history of classical scholarship and the process of consolidation of the social sciences in the academic systems.

Conexiones Culturales y Patrimonio Prehistórico

book cover

osé C. Martín de la Cruz is a pioneer scholar whose contributions both to Prehistory and the diffusion of cultural heritage have been acknowledged at an international level. The present volume pays homage to his professional career, by inviting more than 40 international scholars who tackle the study of Prehistory and the dissemination of heritage from several thematic and temporal perspectives. It is thus a multidisciplinary volume in which scholars from different fields investigate Prehistory from its origins to the period immediately before Greek and Phoenician colonization; at the same time, they explore the different ways in which Prehistoric heritage is transmitted. The volume is composed of four different but related parts, organized chronologically and starting with the most recent Prehistory. The first part deals with the intercultural connections which took place during the Bronze Age in the Mediterranean area. The second part goes back in time and investigates the first settlements and early food producing societies. The third examines our remote past and its natural environment. Finally, the closing part includes a set of multidisciplinary chapters which study prehistory from several different scientific fields. All in all, this volume becomes a scientific meeting point where senior professors and junior scholars get together to offer their scientific findings, at the same time as they pay homage to Professor Martín de la Cruz.

José C. Martín de la Cruz es uno de los investigadores más relevantes durante los últimos años del siglo XX y primeros del siglo XXI tanto en la investigación en Prehistoria como de la difusión del patrimonio a nivel internacional. Este volumen aspira a servir de homenaje a una trayectoria profesional, al reunir alrededor de medio centenar de investigadores para tratar diferentes ejes temáticos y cronológicos relacionados con la investigación prehistórica y su difusión. Por lo tanto, se trata de un volumen multidisciplinar cuyos especialistas interpretan la prehistoria desde sus orígenes más remotos hasta el paso previo a las colonizaciones históricas, así como exploran las diferentes vías en las que pervive el patrimonio prehistórico. El volumen se estructura en cuatro partes, organizadas de manera cronológica desde lo más reciente hasta lo más antiguo. La primera parte trata sobre las economías locales desde la Edad del Hierro hasta los contactos interculturales que se producen durante la Edad del Bronce en el ámbito mediterráneo. En un segundo bloque retrocedemos en el tiempo para explorar las últimas investigaciones realizadas sobre historiografía, secuenciación cronológica, ideología y religiosidad de las sociedades calcolíticas y sobre la economía de las primeras sociedades productoras neolíticas. La tercera parte indaga sobre los primeros pobladores de la península ibérica, las representaciones artísticas y su entorno natural. Por último, cierra el volumen un apartado multidisciplinar que aborda la prehistoria desde diversas áreas científicas. Al final, esta obra se convierte en punto de encuentro donde se reúnen desde investigadores consolidados hasta jóvenes investigadores, que ofrecen sus investigaciones científicas al mismo tiempo que rinden homenaje al profesor Martín de la Cruz.

 The link between leisure and contemplative activity, as paradigmatically developed in Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, has a pre- and long post-history reaching into present day philosophy and theology. Aristotle's melding of leisure with theory is explained anthropologically because human nature's capabilities are perfectly realised in a contemplative form of life. The contributions in this volume investigate models of connecting theory and leisure in the history of ideas with regard to the question of an anthropological foundation of theory.

 Philo's treatise De Migratione Abrahami offers an allegorical commentary on Gen 12. Abraham's migration from Chaldea to the Land of Israel is interpreted by Philo as the soul's migration from the world of the senses to God. The present edition of Philo's text includes a detailed introduction to his life and thought as well as a new German translation of his treatise with annotations and essays illustrating the text from the perspective of various disciplines. The accompanying essays initially place the work in the context of contemporary Judaism, both in Alexandria and the Land of Israel. This is followed by an appreciation of Philo as a representative of Middle Platonism in the imperial period. Two further essays focus on central themes of the Philonic treatise, namely knowledge of God and the experience of exile interpreted philosophically. Two concluding studies compare Philo's figure of Abraham to his image in the New Testament and in Thomas Mann's novel Joseph and his Brothers.

Vol. 21 Núm. 3 (2022): DavarLogos

Otro número de DavarLogos ve la luz merced a la convergencia de miradas mutuamenteenriquecedoras, las de la teología bíblica y sistemática, y de la intersecciónentre ellas y las ciencias sociales.Inicia este ejercicio Joao Rodrigues, confrontándonos con algunos desafíos deDaniel 11, particularmente con la debatida identidad del “hombre despreciable” ovil. El autor aborda la dificultad desde una perspectiva literaria, lingüística y estructuralen diálogo intertextual con el capítulo 8 como fuente de claves hermenéuticasy exegéticas. Sus conclusiones confirman que la Escritura opera de manera naturalcomo su propia intérprete.Allan Bornapé suma luego su voz al diálogo proponiendo una etiología del conflictoentre lo cúltico como expresión de asentimiento humano a la iniciativa divinade salvación, y ciertas manifestaciones culturales refractarias, visto ello desde un análisisteológico y estructural de Génesis 4, donde el alejamiento del fratricida Caínrespecto del Edén representaría el puntapié inicial y epicentro de un modelo culturalenajenante instalado como dato histórico hasta el presente.Finalmente, Carlos Cerdá ahonda en las coincidencias entre la experiencia y elreclamo de justicia del Job bíblico y la teoría del reconocimiento propuesta porel sociólogo Axel Honneth como praxis de relacionamiento para la resolución deconflictos y la preservación de la dignidad individual.

Cahiers «Mondes Anciens»
ISSN: 2107-0199

Phryné devant l’Aréopage
Les Cahiers « Mondes Anciens » sont une revue électronique dédiée aux études anciennes dans toute la diversité de leurs pratiques. Centrés sur les mondes grec et romain, ils concernent cependant tous les domaines de l'histoire de l'Antiquité méditerranéenne et comportent une dimension anthropologique et comparatiste qui va au-delà de ce cadre. Créés en 2009, ils accueillent des travaux en lien avec les thèmes de recherche de l'unité Anthropologie et Histoire des Mondes Antiques (ANHIMA) UMR 8210, née de la fusion du Centre Louis Gernet de recherches comparées sur les sociétés anciennes, du Centre Gustave Glotz de recherches sur les mondes hellénistique et romain et de l'équipe Phéacie, Pratiques culturelles dans les sociétés grecque et romaine.

The Cahiers « Mondes Anciens » are an electronic scholarly publication dedicated to the wide spectrum of studies of the ancient societies. They focus primarily on the Greek and Roman worlds, but take into account the global history of the Ancient Mediterranean and are open to a anthropological and comparatist approach which goes beyond this frame. Launched in 2009, they publish researches related to the activity and interests of the Centre Anthropology and History of the Ancient World (ANHIMA) UMR 8210, created by the merging of the « Centre Louis Gernet de recherches comparées sur les sociétés anciennes », the « Centre Gustave Glotz de recherches sur les mondes hellénistique et romain » and the group « Phéacie, Pratiques culturelles dans les sociétés grecque et romaine ».

Comment le corps des puissants, décrit ou représenté, peut-il incarner le pouvoir ? Comment, au contraire, des forces dominantes peuvent soumettre d’autres corps, qu’ils soient populaires, féminins, malades ? Quelles sont les conséquences de tels agissements sur ces corps ? S’inscrivant pleinement dans la perspective d’anthropologie historique, les articles du présent dossier reprennent ces interrogations et proposent d’envisager la question du pouvoir dans toute sa complexité, à travers ses manifestations, avec, sur et dans le corps, dans un certain nombre de pratiques anciennes.
