This volume is devoted to the receptions of and reflections on the story of Sodom and Gomorrah as told in Genesis 18 and 19. Two articles discuss intertextual reactions to the Sodom narrative within the Hebrew Bible. Five contributions examine readings and rewritings of the Sodom narrative in early Jewish, Christian and Islamic writings: Jubilees, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the New Testament (Revelation 11), Targumim and early Koran commentaries. Two articles focus on separate themes, the punishment of the Dead Sea and the prohibition on looking back. Finally, two articles that focus on Peter Damian and Proust's Sodome et Gomorrhe I describe the later reception of the sin of Sodom as homosexuality. A bibliography of recent works completes the volume.CONTENTSFor the sake of righteousness: Abraham's negotiations with YHWH as prologue to the Sodom narrative: Genesis 18:16-33 Saul the Sodomite: Genesis 18-19 as the opening panel of a polemic triptych on King Saul Lot versus Abraham: the interpretation of Genesis 18:1-19:38 in Jubilees 16:1-9 Sodom and Gomorrah in the Dead Sea Scrolls Sodom, Egypt, and the two witnesses of Revelation 11:8 Sodom and Gomorrah in the Targumim Lut and his people in the Koran and its early commentaries The punishment of the Dead Sea: Martyrdom of Pionius 4.20 and its precedents in Ben Sira and Africanus Don't look back: from the wife of Lot to Orpheus and Eurydice Sodomites, gays and biblical scholars: a gathering organized by Peter Damian?
