Item description for Die Assumptio Mosis: Studien Zur Rezeption Massgultiger Uberugferung (Supplements to the Journal for the Study of Judaism) by Norbert Johannes Hofmann...
This study places the Assumptio Mosis (AM) in its literary context of traditions of the 2nd century BC to the 1st century AD. It examines how in AM the biblical traditions have been adopted and adjusted to the actual, circumstances. After presenting the current state of affairs in research and analyzing the structure of the AM, the investigation focuses on a detailed account on how Deut 31 - Josh 1 has been incorporated in the AM and how this process affected the theological content. Furthermore the AM is put in a comparative perspective with other apocryphal traditions to try and characterize the place of the AM within this contemporary literature. This process of reception is clarified against the background of the so-called rewritten-Bible phenomena. A pattern can be discerned within this process, whereby actualizing and adjusting to the historical circumstances are major objectives.
