    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 99.95

    Judaic Technologies of the Word argues that Judaism does not exist in an abstract space of reflection.

More than this, Judaic bodies and texts, both oral and written, connect and feed back on one another. Judaic... more...

Wie können wir die Übertragung des... more...
