Abstract

The term ´Judeo-Christian` in reference to a tradition, heritage, ethic, civilization, faith etc. has been used in a wide variety of contexts with widely diverging meanings. Contrary to popular belief, the term was not coined in the United States in the middle of the 20th century but in 1831 in Germany by Ferdinand Christian Baur. By acknowledging and returning to this European perspective and context, the volume engages the historical, theological, philosophical and political dimensions of the term`s development. Scholars of European intellectual history will find this volume timely and relevant.

Abstract

This book develops a new philosophy of Israel education. “Person-centered” Israel education is concerned with developing in individual learners the ability to understand and make rational, emotional, and ethical decisions about Israel, and about the challenges Israel regularly faces, whether they be existential, spiritual, democratic, humanitarian, national, etc. Chazan begins by laying out the terms of the conversation then examines the six-pronged theory of “person-centered” Israel education to outline the aims, content, pedagogy, and educators needed to implement this program. Finally, the author meditates on what a transformation from ethnic to ethical education might look like in this context and others.

Abstract

The textual tradition of the Bible has inspired many of the most significant developments, principles and methodologies in editorial practice, from the parallel texts and critical symbols of Origen’s Hexapla in the early third century to Lachmann’s nineteeth-century stemmatics. It is therefore unsurprising that, in this digital age, the New Testament continues to be at the forefront of new and exciting initiatives. The present chapter describes the workflow and tools developed for the Editio Critica Maior of the Greek New Testament, in particular those associated with the Workspace for Collaborative Editing, and how these have shaped the task of editing both the text and documents of the New Testament and offer new models of publication thanks to the capacity of electronic media and the Internet.

Abstract

Research activity on German-language literature by Jewish authors has intensified, especially since the 1970s. However, until now there has been no single work to compile and evaluate this body of literary work. This Handbook successfully fulfills this need. A historical section addresses the course of German-Jewish literature since the beginning of the Enlightenment, and a systematic section is devoted to the presentation of specific genres.
