Item description for Staat Und Gesellschaft Im Vorexilischen Juda: Vom. 8. Jahrhundert Bis Zum Exil (Supplements to Vetus Testamentum) (German Edition) by Rainer Kessler...

The epoch from the eighth century B.C.E. up to the exile is marked by a great transformation in the society of ancient Judah, as reflected especially in the texts of the pre-exilic prophets. A relatively egalitarian society transforms into a class society, wherein a class of wealthy landowners is opposed to a growing class of impoverished farmers. The main factor in this development is the indebtedness of the farmers. All the forces of society and state are afflicted by this transformation. This book endeavours to describe this transformation as precisely as possible, by examining the prophetical texts , and other biblical and epigraphical materials. Unlike the theories of "annuity capitalism" or "antique development" the work especially stresses the role of the state and its organs in this transformation. Die Zeit vom 8. Jahrhundert bis zum Exil ist die Zeit eines gewaltigen gesellschaftlichen Umbruchs im antiken Juda, wie er sich vor allem in den Texten der vorexilischen Propheten widerspiegelt. Eine relativ egalitare Gesellschaft transformiert sich in eine Klassengesellschaft, bei der wenige Grundbesitzer einer groer werdenden Klasse verarmter Bauern gegenuberstehen. Von diesem Umbruch, dessen Hauptfaktor die Uberschuldung der kleinen Bauern ist, werden alle Krafte der Gesellschaft und des Staates erfat. Die vorliegende Arbeit versucht, anhand der einschlagigen prophetischen Texte, des ubrigen biblischen sowie des epigraphischen Materials diesen Umbruch moglichst umfassend zu beschreiben. Anders als bei den gegenwartig vertretenen Theorien des "Rentenkapitalismus" und der "antiken Entwicklung" wird dabei besonderes Gewicht auf die Rolle des Staates und seiner Organe bei der gesellschaftlichen Umwalzung gelegt. Das Buch wendet sich an Exegeten, die auf dem Feld der Sozialgeschichte Israels, der vorexilischen Prophetie und der althebraischen Epigraphik arbeiten.
