Biblical Text in Rabbinic Context


The Book of Chronicles in the Mishnah, Talmud and Midrash

This study investigates how the Rabbis handled the Book of Chronicles. Among several issues, it shows that the Rabbis tried to reconcile the intermarriages mentioned in genealogical lists in Chronicles with the opposition to intermarriage stated in Ezra-Nehemiah. This is apparent because the baraita quoted in b. B. Bat. 15a and the Gemara following it attribute the composition of Chronicles to Ezra and Nehemiah. Ezra composed at least some of the lists, including the intermarriages mentioned there, because those intermarriages were acceptable under certain conditions.

Middle Eastern Minorities and the Arab Spring

Identity and Community in the Twenty-First Century
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0653-6
Middle Eastern Minorities and the Arab Spring: Identity and Community in the Twenty-First Century examines eleven minority groups in the early years of the so-called Arab Spring. Wide-ranging in scope, minorities of diverse religious and ethno-linguistic backgrounds are included from North Africa, the Levant, and the Arabian Peninsula. Each has experienced the Arab Spring differently and uniquely depending upon their context. Of particular concern to the international team of scholars involved in this volume, is the interaction and reaction of minorities to the protest movements across the Arab World that called for greater democratic rights and end to respective autocratic regimes. While some minorities participated in the Arab Spring, others were wary of instability and the unintended effects of regime change – notably the rise of violent Islamism. The full effects of the Arab Spring will not be known for years to come, but for the minorities of the Middle East, the immediate future seems certainly tenuous at best.
