The 'Grammar' of Sacrifice

A Generativist Study of the Israelite Sacrificial System in the Priestly Writings with A 'Grammar' of Σ

Naphtali S. Meshel

  • The first explicit, systematic "grammar" of ritual sacrifice
  • The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the details of sacrifice-e.g., types of animals used, blood application
  • It is a combination of both theoretical innovation and philological work
  • It illuminates aspects of biblical exegesis that have previously remained unclear or mistranslated
