The Book of Job. Aesthetics, Ethics, Hermeneutics
The biblical book of Job is a central reference point for dealing with adversity and personal disasters, for faith and apostasy. Why does the book play such a prominent role in the project of modernity – from the Enlightenment to the present day – in literature, art, and theater?
The two editors of the first volume of the new series "Perspectives on Jewish Texts and Contexts" Leora Batnitzky (Princeton) and Ilana Pardes (Jerusalem) will discuss these questions with Vivian Liska (Antwerp).
A cooperation with De Gruyter Publishers and the Institute of Jewish Studies, Antwerp.
