The Literary Imagination in Jewish Antiquity

Eva Mroczek

  • Offers new ways to conceptualize how early Jews understood sacred writing before the concepts of "Bible" and "book" had emerged
  • Treats early Jewish literary culture on its own terms, rather than as a foil for or precursor to later, normative Judaism and Christianity
  • Contributes a literary perspective to the texts of early Judaism, which have primarily been studied through the lenses of textual criticism, social history, and the history of exegesis
  • Critiques tendencies to see early Jewish creativity as centered primarily on exegesis of Scripture
