  • Crucifixion in Antiquityby Gunnar Samuelsson

    Mohr Siebeck 2013; US$ 87.92

    Hauptbeschreibung Gunnar Samuelsson investigates the philological aspects of how ancient Greek, Latin and Hebrew/Aramaic texts depict crucifixions. A survey of the texts shows that there has been too narrow a view of the "crucifixion" terminology. The various terms do not only refer to "crucify" and "cross." They are used much more diversely. Hence,... more...

  • Getting the Gospelsby Steven L. Bridge

    Baker Publishing Group 2004; US$ 17.00

    On March 23, 1998, director James Cameron made an indelible mark on Academy Award history. It wasn't because his film, Titanic , captured so many Oscars. Nor was it because of the movie's unprecedented box-office success. Rather, Cameron will forever be remembered in Hollywood's annals because, upon accepting his award for Best Director, he enthusiastically... more...

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 154.00
