Item description for Deuteronomistic History and the Name Theology (Beihefte Zur Zeitschrift Fur Die Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft) by Sandra Lynn Richter...

This monograph is a comparative, socio-linguistic reassessment of the Deuteronomic idiom, lesakken sem sam, and its synonymous biblical reflexes in the Deuteronomistic History, lasum sem sam, and lihyt sem sam. These particular formulae have long been understood as evidence of the Name Theology -- the evolution in Israelite religion toward a more abstracted mode of divine presence in the temple. Utilizing epigraphic material gathered from Mesopotamian and Levantine contexts, this study demonstrates that lesakken sem sam and lasum sem sam are loan-adaptations of Akkadian suma sakanu, an idiom common to the royal monumental tradition of Mesopotamia. The resulting retranslation and reinterpretation of the biblical idiom profoundly impacts the classic formulation of the Name Theology.
