EABS w tym roku w Kordobie! Czas na zgłaszanie referatów

European Association of Biblical Studies w tym roku zaplanowało doroczną konferencję w malowniczej Kordobie. Odbędzie się ona w dniach 12-15 lipca 2015. W lutym upływa termin zgłaszania referatów. EABS działa – jak na tego typu towarzystwa – dość demokratycznie. Członkowie proponują sesje tematycznie i autonomicznie odpowiadają za ich organizację. Warto odwiedzić stronę z wykazem aktualnie czynnych grup badawczych / sesji tematycznych.

Toledot Yeshu – krytyczne wydanie z Mohr Siebeck

Ukazała się właśnie dwutomowa publikacja dotycząca Toledot Yeshu, w redakcji i tłumaczeniu Michaela Meerson’a i Petera Schäfer’a. Pomimo odstraszającej i zaporowej ceny będzie to konieczny zakup dla wielu profesjonalnych bibliotek.

Do książki dołączono również dostęp do zasobów on-line, których opis wygląda imponująco: In addition, the purchase of the volume offers full online access to a comprehensive database of Toledot Yeshu manuscripts, designed to encourage and facilitate further research about this important book in the history of Jewish-Christian polemics. All Hebrew and Aramaic manuscripts are edited in the present book and database: an unusual combination of a traditional critical edition with an electronic research tool. The database features a full-text search of all manuscripts as well as printing and downloading capabilities. The price includes access to the database (for one simultaneous user). Access for institutions is provided through the IP address, for private individuals through username and password. An activation code is enclosed in the book. Access to a free seven day trial period can be obtained here: toledot [AT] mohr.de.
