Imagining Biblical Worlds

by ,

Sheffield Academic Press 2002

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The essays in this volume address the interface between biblical studies, archaeology, sociology, and cultural anthropology, celebrating the pioneering work of James Flanagan. In particular, this collection explores various ways in which the real ancient world is constructed by the modern critical reader with the aid of various theoretical and practical tools. The contributors to this volume have all been involved with Flanagan and his projects during his academic career and the essays carry forward the important interdisciplinary agendas he has encouraged. Part one deals with his recent interest in spatiality and part two with social and historical constructs. This book in James Flanagan’s honour represents a significant statement of research in an area of biblical and historical research that is increasingly important yet surprisingly under-represented.

Praise for the Print Edition

The themes provide a unity to the volume that is not the case for all Festschriften, making this work an important theoretical volume. Despite some unity in topic there is still something for everyone . . .
