|Facing an Empire by Guido Guarducci|
Recent archaeological discoveries within the Upper Tigris region in Southeastern Turkey offer a unique opportunity to understand the dynamics of the Assyrian Empire borderlands. Within a few years most of the region will be irreversibly submerged, due to the construction of the Ilisu dam, the biggest hydroelectric power plant project in Turkey. It is of paramount importance to understand and record as much data as possible about the local communities and the foreign connections that flowered in this area.
|Sources and Authors: Assumptions in the Study of Hebrew Bible Narrative by Noel Weeks|
The foundational period of Hebrew Bible scholarship promulgated the assumption that the original “authors” were incapable of the sophisticated literary technique displayed in that work. Complexity was ascribed to a later stage. Yet in that later stage the supposedly more sophisticated redactors were unable to see blatant contradictions and redundancies. This work investigates Genesis, Judges, Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles looking at how the message conveyed has been misunderstood through assumptions about the capacities and intentions of original writers. It shows how retaining the assumptions about the inability of early writers inevitably leads to conclusions of a late provenance.
|The Reception and Remembrance of Abraham by Pernille Carstens|
This book explores the role of the biblical patriarch Abraham in the formation and use of authoritative texts in the Persian and Hellenistic periods. It reflects a conference session in 2009 focusing on Abraham as a figure of cultural memory in the literature of these periods. Cultural memory is the shared reproduction and recalling of what has been learned and retained. It also involves transformation and innovation. As a figure of memory, stories of Abraham served as guidelines for identity-formation and authoritative illustration of behaviour for the emerging Jewish communities.
|Latin Historical Phonetics by Helen Perdicoyianni|
The book is designed for students who wish to learn the principles of Latin phonetics as well as for more advanced students who wish to review or reevaluate these principles in the light of further philological and linguistic evidence. The body of the book comprises an extensive discussion of the various historical changes that went into the making of Latin, analyzing the development of the vocalic and consonantal systems in light of literary and epigraphical sources.
