Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Enoch, Levi, and Jubilees on Sexuality marks a first stage in William Loader's research on attitudes toward sexuality in Judaism and Christianity of the Hellenistic Greco-Roman era. Loader first discusses the early Enoch literature relevant to the theme, focusing on the impact of an ancient myth on the writings and examining how sexual deeds are not here concerned with sexual wrongdoing. He then examines the weight of such wrongdoing in the priestly instruction of the fragmentary Aramaic Levi Document as a whole. He finally considers Jubilees as a cumulative work, building on both the Enoch tradition and the instruction of Levi, and reveals a range of devices warning against sexual depravity. Loader's aim throughout is to interpret the works from within, examining literary form, context, sequence, and tradition and redaction, reflecting engagement with current research in this area.

Synopsis:

"Enoch, Levi, and Jubilees on Sexuality" marks a first stage in William Loader??'s research on attitudes toward sexuality in Judaism and Christianity of the Hellenistic Greco-Roman era. Part 1 of this landmark work deals with the early Enoch literature relevant to the theme, including all of 1 Enoch except the Book of Parables and the final chapter. Part 2 deals largely with the fragmentary "Aramaic Levi Document" as a whole. Part 3, the longest section, contains the discussion of the Jubilees, including an introductory chapter identifying the importance of the theme within the overall structure of the work. These studies by Loader aim to interpret the works from within, examining literary form, context, and sequence, as well as tradition and redaction, reflecting the benefit of others??? research in this arena.
