Synopsis

Explores the interpretive history of the Book of Jeremiah, and highlights the various ways it has influenced the cultures in which it was read





Jeremiah Through the Centuries explores the reception history of the sixth century B.C.E. prophet, providing original commentary on the texts and traditions that continue to deeply impact readers by exemplifying the spiritual struggle of the faithful. Focusing on the Book of Jeremiah, the text presents an original theory about the effects of Jeremiah on the developing idea of the self in Western history and culture, particularly over the last 400 years, in a wide range of liturgical, political, artistic, literary, and cultural contexts.





The book guides readers through various interpretations of Jeremiah's poetry and prose, discussing the profound influence that Jeremiah and Western culturehave had on each other through the centuries. Significant texts from every chapter of Jeremiah are presented in a chronological narrative as both conversation and debate-enabling readers to encounter the prophet in the text of the Bible, in previous interpretations, and in the context of their own lives. Throughout the text, the receptions reflect historical contexts and highlight the ways they shaped specific receptions of Jeremiah. This book:











Illustrates how the Book of Jeremiah was adapted by readers to face new challenges, both in the past and present



Includes examples of Jeremiah in social satire, Islamic tradition, political debate, and religious controversy



Provides a detailed introduction that traces Jeremiah's influence on events and traditions



Offers insights into both celebrated texts and lesser-known passages that are relevant to contemporary readers



Features numerous, previously unpublished, illustrations, demonstrating the influence of Jeremiah on traditions in Western art







Featuring engaging narrative and expert commentary, Jeremiah Through the Centuries is ideal for students, teachers, and general readers with interest in theology and biblical studies, Judaic studies, ancient literature, cultural criticism, reception history of the Bible, and the history of Western civilization.
