Item description for Jenseitshoffnung in Wort Und Stein: Nefesch Und Pyramidales Grabmal Als Phanomene Antiken Judischen Bestattungswesens Im Kontext Der Nachbarkulturen (Arbeiten ... Und Des Urchristentums) (German Edition) by Lothar Triebel...

This monograph deals with two phenomena of ancient (hellenistic and roman times) Jewish burial customs: The use of the term "nefesh" for denoting a tomb-monument etc. and the use of the pyramid as a distinct feature of tomb architecture and of decoration of burial sites. Every instance of Jewish use of either the term or the pyramid will be analysed, as well as a couple of instances from neighbouring cultures and languages (especially Nabatea and Palmyra). The widespread opinion that "nefesh" denotes specifically a pyramid is to be falsified. Palestinian Jewish burial customs turn out to be deeply embedded into their semitic environment. Finally the hypothesis is advanced that the pyramid often symbolizes a concept of afterlife. About 50 plates with ca. 200 photos and drawings accompany the text.
