Early Jewish Liturgy


A Sourcebook for use by students of Early Christian Liturgy


Whereas many studies suggest or presuppose some link between Christian liturgical origins and the practices of Judaism the Jewish sources are hard to find and understand for Christian students without any background in early Judaism and its literature. This book presents some of the relevant sources in clear English, with accompanying material which sets the sources in their context and introduces the student to the debate about the relationship between Jewish and early Christian liturgy.

Christians under the Ottoman Turks

French and English Travellers in Greece and Anatolia (1615-1694)
ISBN: 978-1-59333-922-7
In the 17th century Britons left their country in vast numbers - explorers, diplomats, ecclesiastics, merchants, or simply “tourists.” Only the most intrepid ventured into the faraway lands of the Ottoman Empire. Their travel narratives, best-sellers in their day, provide an entertaining but also valuable testimony on the everyday life of Orthodox Christians and their coexistence with the Turks. Greek Christians, though living under the Ottoman yoke, enjoyed greater religious freedom than many of their brothers in Christian Europe. The travelers’ intellectual curiosity about Greece opened a window on the Orthodox Church, and paved the way for future dialogue.

The God of Thunder and War in Micah, Habakkuk, and Zechariah

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0611-6
This volume explores storm-/warrior-god motif as found in non-biblical ANE texts, followed by an analysis of the language and imagery in several noteworthy theophanic passages in the Hebrew Bible. These characteristics and vocabulary are used in later chapters to identify and analyze similar motifs in the Twelve Prophets, especially focusing on Mic 7:7-20; Habakkuk 3; and Zech 9:9-16 as test cases. By tracing the use of the storm-/warrior-god motif and language associated with it, a detectable shift is apparent in the use of the motif in the HB that corresponds with the development of monotheism within Ancient Israelite religion.
