    Contemporary scholars have sharply disagreed over the importance of the loquacious women of "Liber Antiquitatum Biblicarum," Using the methods of contemporary Cognitive Linguistics, "Ideology and Metaphor" develops a systematic, replicable reading of the text and its characters, showing how Pseudo-Philo uses these women's stories... more...

  • ?Verhärtet eure Herzen nicht?by Gabriella Gelardini

    BRILL 2006; US$ 226.00

    The book interprets Hebrews against the background of ancient synagogue preaching and liturgy.

This hermeneutical key opens new perspectives on Hebrews. ***** Die Untersuchung deutet den Hebräer(brief) auf dem Hintergrund... more...

    BRILL 2006; US$ 173.00

    Employing narrative criticism to provide a comprehensive examination of the dreams and visions in Luke-Acts, this study highlights those passages in which characters interpret their visionary encounters (e.g., the infancy narrative, Saul?s/Paul?s conversion, the Cornelius-Peter episode, and Paul?s dream at Troas). more...
