A volume of collected essays that explores what we can learn about the producers and readers of biblical books by looking into matters of language, rhetoric, style, and ideology. What do they teach us about these literati's world of knowledge and imagination, about the issues they had in mind and the ways they came to deal with them through authoritative literature? The book includes essays on such issues as whether linguistic theories can solve literary-critical problems, on what is "late biblical Hebrew," on parallelism and noun groups in biblical poetry, and the communicative meaning of some linguistic choices.

There was probably only one past, but there are many different histories. As mental representations of narrow segments of the past, 'histories' reflect different cultural contexts and different historians, although 'history' is a scientific enterprise whenever it processes representative data using rational and controllable methods to work out hypotheses that can be falsified by empirical evidence. A History of Biblical Israel combines experience gained through decades of teaching biblical exegesis and courses on the history of ancient Israel, and of on-going involvement in biblical archaeology. 'Biblical Israel' is understood as a narrative produced primarily in the province of Yehud to forge the collective memory of the elite that operated the temple of Jerusalem under the auspices of the Achaemenid imperial apparatus. The notion of 'Biblical Israel' provides the necessary hindsight to narrate the fate of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah as the pre-history of 'Biblical Israel', since the archives of these kingdoms were only mined in the Persian era to produce the grand biblical narrative.The volume covers the history of 'Biblical Israel' through its fragmentation in the Hellenistic and Roman periods until 136 CE, when four Roman legions crushed the revolt of Simeon Bar-Kosiba.

Thanks to very peculiar style and theology, Pg was identified as far back as 1869 by Theodor Noeldeke and remains one of the last pillars of Pentateuch research after the fall of the Wellhausen model. Its existence is rarely doubted, but its extent is debated. Does it end already in Exodus (Otto, Pola, Bauks) or does it go as far as Deuteronomy (Noth, Frevel) or even into Joshua (Lohfink, Knauf)? The end determines Pg's notion of the land and its conquest, important subjects today for the formation of the Pentateuch (was there first a Hexateuch?). The 364-day perpetual calendar offers a reliable criterion to identify Pg within the final text of the Hexateuch because the simple mathematic of the calendar are easier to control than hypothetical redactors. Pg is divided into seven periods, from creation to the entry of the sons of Israel in an empty land of Canaan. The festival calendar of Leviticus 23, and the Jubilee of Lev 25 constitute the heart of Pg, the practical outworking of principles presented in the narrative. Bloodless atonement with no connection to any temple whatsoever, peaceful entry into the empty Promised Land, eternal sabbatical rhythm, are Pg's major theological characteristics.

How can a piano tuner obtain such high precision with no other measuring device than their own ears? How can a sequence of notes seem to rise continuously despite coming back periodically to the same notes? What are the possibilities and the limits of digital sound? These are a few examples of questions that are discussed in this book, which presents an overview on the nature of musical sounds, from their production by acoustic music instruments to synthesized sounds obtained with computers.
The topics that are treated include sound propagation, Fourier and time-frequency analysis, psychoacoustics, analog and digital signal processing theory, computer science and MP3 sound compression, and of course... music!

Land, Credit and Crisis - Agrarian Finance in the Hebrew Bible (Hardcover, New): Philippe Guillaume Land, Credit and Crisis - Agrarian Finance in the Hebrew Bible (Hardcover, New)

Land, Credit and Crisis presents a new understanding of the financial culture of the Bible. Biblical Palestine was characterized by an over-abundance of arable land combined with a chronic lack of manpower and agricultural credit. These circumstances account for much contemporary prophetic fulminating against merchants and the rich. The book's close examination of the three pillars of the biblical financial system - the seventh-year shemittah, the jubilee, and the ban on interest - reveals how these financial instruments and institutions reflected a tough economic realism. The study argues that the image of the biblical prophet as a champion of social justice must be revised.

In light of the growing knowledge derived from economic studies of ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt and of Ottoman Syria, social-scientific exegesis of the Hebrew scriptures are in need of a serious overhaul. This study offers a new perspective on biblical texts relative to farming (Naboths vineyard, Ruth, the Shunamite, Job, Nehemiah 5 and others) that challenges some exegetical shibboleths: private property, latifundia, absentee landlord, foreclosure, landless farmers, parasitic cities, usury, and the presentation of farmers as helpless victims. Biblical Palestine was characterized by an over-abundance of arable land, a chronic lack of manpower and of agricultural credit. Prophetic fulminations against merchants and the rich should not be taken at face value. They need to be understood in the framework of patronage. The icon of the biblical prophet as a champion of social justice is discarded and replaced by a fresh assessment of the three pillars of the biblical financial system: the seventh-year shemittah, the jubilee and the ban on interest. Usually considered utopian, these institutions display the kind of economic realism that is required to move biblical exegesis beyond pious slogans.
