Festschrift for Jean Duhaime on the Occasion of his 86th birthday
Essays in French and English
Professor emeritus since 2012, Jean Duhaime taught Hebrew Bible at the Facult� de th�ologie et de sciences des religions de l'Universit� de Montr�al from 1976 to 2012, and served there as Dean from 2005 to 2009. This volume offered to Duhaime on occasion of his 68th birthday focuses on his major contribution to scholarship: the construction of religious identities at the crossroads of exegesis and the social sciences. Contributions on this topic cover a wide range of literature: the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Pseudepigrapha, the late Hebrew Bible writings and the New Testament (Second Temple Period). Texts are studied through various interpretative tools such as social-scientific criticism, literary criticism, and historical criticism. Papers examine how ritual, characterization, interpretation of religious texts, material artifacts, etc. play a role in the identity formation of various Judaic and Christian groups in the Second Temple period.
