Scientific Study from the year 2017 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, , language: English, abstract: The advancement in computational linguistics and statistics has made an explicit impact on the emergence of corpus linguistics and the sophistication of its applications and studies involving not only pure linguistic issues but also areas related to real-life problems. One of these areas is authorship attribution studies.Authorship attribution is a domain of a study concerned with identifying the most likely author of a particular anonymous or disputed document from a set of suspected authors. To this end, several methodologies, techniques, and approaches have been devised and so often assessed on various sets of data to make sure of their effectiveness. Although the literature shows no consensus as to which methodology is the best among others, there is an overwhelming fact that all authorship attribution studies are grounded on the assumption that each author has a particular "linguistic fingerprint" which can be captured through detecting and measuring the linguistic clues hidden in their authorial styles. Taking an experimental framework, this study is an attempt to gauge the discriminating and clustering power of the selected methodology against a particular type of data covering samples of political journal articles. The corpus compiled is a special purpose one strictly controlled for genre, register, and date of publication. I...

Charles A. Gieschen Angelomorphic Christology. Antecedents and Early Evidence

5439 руб.
In Angelomorphic Christology author Charles Gieschen demonstrates that angel and angel-related traditions, especially those built upon the so-called "Angel of the Lord" figure in the Hebrew Bible, had a profound impact upon the origin, development, and shape of early Christian claims about Jesus.Gieschen’s book falls neatly into two halves. The first catalogues the various antecedents for Angelomorphic Christology—Jewish speculation about principal angels, mediator figures, and related phenomena—with chapters on “An Angelomorphic God,” “Angelomorphic Divine Hypostases” (including the Divine Name, the Divine Glory, Wisdom, the Word, the Spirit and Power), Principal Named Angels, and Angelomorphic Humans. The book’s second half examines the evidence for Angelomorphic Christology in early Christian literature. This portion begins with a brief overview of the principal Angel and Angelomorphic Christology from Justin to Nicea and then examines in turn the Pseudo-Clementines, the Shepherd of Hermas, the Ascension of Isaiah, the Revelation of John, the Fourth Gospel, the Epistle to the Hebrews, and the Pauline Corpus.Gieschen argues that Christian use of the angelomorphic tradition did not spawn a new and variant kind of Christology, one that competed with accepted belief about Jesus for early Christians’ favor, but instead shows how Christians adapted an already variegated Jewish tradition to weave a single story about a common Lord.

Elisheva Baumgarten Mothers and Children. Jewish Family Life in Medieval Europe

4277 руб.
This book presents a synthetic history of the family--the most basic building block of medieval Jewish communities--in Germany and northern France during the High Middle Ages. Concentrating on the special roles of mothers and children, it also advances recent efforts to write a comparative Jewish-Christian social history. Elisheva Baumgarten draws on a rich trove of primary sources to give a full portrait of medieval Jewish family life during the period of childhood from birth to the beginning of formal education at age seven. Illustrating the importance of understanding Jewish practice in the context of Christian society and recognizing the shared foundations in both societies, Baumgarten's examination of Jewish and Christian practices and attitudes is explicitly comparative. Her analysis is also wideranging, covering nearly every aspect of home life and childrearing, including pregnancy, midwifery, birth and initiation rituals, nursing, sterility, infanticide, remarriage, attitudes toward mothers and fathers, gender hierarchies, divorce, widowhood, early education, and the place of children in the home, synagogue, and community. A richly detailed and deeply researched contribution to our understanding of the relationship between Jews and their non-Jewish neighbors, Mothers and Children provides a key analysis of the history of Jewish families in medieval Ashkenaz.

Joseph Shatzmiller Cultural Exchange. Jews, Christians, and Art in the Medieval Marketplace

2252 руб.
Demonstrating that similarities between Jewish and Christian art in the Middle Ages were more than coincidental, Cultural Exchange meticulously combines a wide range of sources to show how Jews and Christians exchanged artistic and material culture. Joseph Shatzmiller focuses on communities in northern Europe, Iberia, and other Mediterranean societies where Jews and Christians coexisted for centuries, and he synthesizes the most current research to describe the daily encounters that enabled both societies to appreciate common artistic values. Detailing the transmission of cultural sensibilities in the medieval money market and the world of Jewish money lenders, this book examines objects pawned by peasants and humble citizens, sacred relics exchanged by the clergy as security for loans, and aesthetic goods given up by the Christian well-to-do who required financial assistance. The work also explores frescoes and decorations likely painted by non-Jews in medieval and early modern Jewish homes located in Germanic lands, and the ways in which Jews hired Christian artists and craftsmen to decorate Hebrew prayer books and create liturgical objects. Conversely, Christians frequently hired Jewish craftsmen to produce liturgical objects used in Christian churches. With rich archival documentation, Cultural Exchange sheds light on the social and economic history of the creation of Jewish and Christian art, and expands the general understanding of cultural exchange in brand-new ways.

Gabriel Moran Uniqueness

1989 руб.
The concept of the ""uniqueness"" of Christianity often blocks attempts at dialogue with other religions. Traditionally, the argument goes: if Christianity is unique, then to dialogue with others somehow diminishes the weight of the claim that Jesus and the Gospel are unique. But what if ""uniqueness,"" properly defined, actually constitutes the key for understanding both Jewish and Christian traditions? Author Gabriel Moran frames his analysis of ""uniqueness"" by discussing the implications of that question.In this fluent and conversational work, Moran examines the paradox surrounding the concept of ""uniqueness"" in Christian and Jewish religious traditions. He uncovers the layers of meaning that accrue in a word that is in some sense both illogical and yet indispensable for human religious conversation. Tracing a logic of uniqueness embodied in ""revelation,"" ""faith,"" ""chosenness,"" ""covenant,"" and ""mediator,"" Moran opens a conversation between Jews and Christians that will lead readers to greater wisdom and religious depth. ""Gabriel Moran's relentless probing of a key term, 'uniqueness,' in its varied uses in our respective theological traditions can provide fresh insights and perspectives for religious educators and systematicians alike, even where one might feel that something more or something othe...

Transnational Traditions. New Perspectives on American Jewish History

4764 руб.
Despite being the archetypal diasporic people, modern Jews have most often been studied as citizens and subjects of single nation states and empires—as American, Polish, Russian, or German Jews. This national approach is especially striking considering the renewed interest among scholars in global and transnational influences on the modern world. Editors Ava F. Kahn and Adam D. Mendelsohn offer a new approach in Transnational Traditions: New Perspectives on American Jewish History as contributors use transnational and comparative methodologies to place American Jewry into a broader context of cultural, commercial, and social exchange with Jews in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. In examining patterns that cross national boundaries, contributors offer new ways of understanding the development of American Jewish life. The diverse chapters, written by leading scholars, reflect on episodes of continuity and contact between Jews in America and world Jewry over the past two centuries. Individual case studies cover a range of themes including migration, international trade, finance, cultural interchange, acculturation, and memory and commemoration. Overall, this volume will expose readers to the variety and complexity of transnational experiences and encounters within American Jewish history. Accessible to students and scholars alike, Transnational Traditions will be appropriate as a classroom text for courses on modern Jewish, ethnic, immigr...

Kalman P. Bland The Artless Jew. Medieval and Modern Affirmations and Denials of the Visual

4514 руб.
Conventional wisdom holds that Judaism is indifferent or even suspiciously hostile to the visual arts due to the Second Commandment's prohibition on creating "graven images," the dictates of monotheism, and historical happenstance. This intellectual history of medieval and modern Jewish attitudes toward art and representation overturns the modern assumption of Jewish iconophobia that denies to Jewish culture a visual dimension. Kalman Bland synthesizes evidence from medieval Jewish philosophy, mysticism, poetry, biblical commentaries, travelogues, and law, concluding that premodern Jewish intellectuals held a positive, liberal understanding of the Second Commandment and did, in fact, articulate a certain Jewish aesthetic. He draws on this insight to consider modern ideas of Jewish art, revealing how they are inextricably linked to diverse notions about modern Jewish identity that are themselves entwined with arguments over Zionism, integration, and anti-Semitism. Through its use of the past to illuminate the present and its analysis of how the present informs our readings of the past, this book establishes a new assessment of Jewish aesthetic theory rooted in historical analysis. Authoritative and original in its identification of authentic Jewish traditions of painting, sculpture, and architecture, this volume will ripple the waters of several disciplines, including Jewish studies, art history, medieval and modern history, and philosophy.

Hellenistic Egypt was the setting for perhaps the first Jewish Golden Age, a time "golden" in Jewish memory as an era of vibrant cultural interaction between the Jews and their gentile hosts. This is the story of the adventures and misadventures of the people of Israel in the land of Egypt the years shrouded in the mists of biblical history under the Pharaohs; the strange intermezzo of the Jewish mercenary detachment on the island of Elephantine on the upper Nile; the apogee of Jewish culture under Ptolemies; and finally, the Jewish community's rapid decline and catastrophic disappearance under Roman rule. Joseph Mélèze Modrzejewski uses scientific analysis to illuminate the reality underlying our image of the past. The biblical accounts and Jewish and pagan literary texts are juxtaposed with discoveries of a century of archaeological and papyrological research that has unearthed the edicts of emperors as well as the humble correspondence of common people. In a tantalizing epilogue, Modrzejewski probes a turning point in Western civilization: the brief but crucial episode when budding Christianity and the Alexandrian Jews parted company.

Israeli Jews' response to and appropriation of Greek culture is the subject of the essays in this rich volume. Contributors provide evidence of Greek cultural influence in Judea and Galilee, from before the Maccabean revolt into the rabbinic period. They also probe the limits of that influence, the persistence of Semitic languages and thought patterns, and the exclusiveness of Jewish religion. While Greek thought had a significant impact on Judaism, Jews remained distinct in the Greco-Roman world. Hellenistic Judaism's relationship to Greek culture was never simply one of assimilation or repudiation. Similarly, the Hebrew and Aramaic-speaking Judaism of the homeland remained distinct from the Hellenistic Judaism of the Diaspora.

Jonathan Elukin Living Together, Living Apart. Rethinking Jewish-Christian Relations in the Middle Ages

2014 руб.
This book challenges the standard conception of the Middle Ages as a time of persecution for Jews. Jonathan Elukin traces the experience of Jews in Europe from late antiquity through the Renaissance and Reformation, revealing how the pluralism of medieval society allowed Jews to feel part of their local communities despite recurrent expressions of hatred against them. Elukin shows that Jews and Christians coexisted more or less peacefully for much of the Middle Ages, and that the violence directed at Jews was largely isolated and did not undermine their participation in the daily rhythms of European society. The extraordinary picture that emerges is one of Jews living comfortably among their Christian neighbors, working with Christians, and occasionally cultivating lasting friendships even as Christian culture often demonized Jews. As Elukin makes clear, the expulsions of Jews from England, France, Spain, and elsewhere were not the inevitable culmination of persecution, but arose from the religious and political expediencies of particular rulers. He demonstrates that the history of successful Jewish-Christian interaction in the Middle Ages in fact laid the social foundations that gave rise to the Jewish communities of modern Europe. Elukin compels us to rethink our assumptions about this fascinating period in history, offering us a new lens through which to appreciate the rich complexities of the Jewish experience in medieval Christendom.

977 руб.
There is a growing debate in the church today over how Christians should relate to Israel. Has the Christian gospel and church replaced the special role of the Jewish people in God’s plans and affections? Are replacement theologians right in believing that God has no future destiny for the Jewish people, other than their common salvation through the Christian gospel? Or will, as Christian Zionists believe, the Jewish people and the State of Israel play a central and vital role in God’s End-Time plan for the world’s redemption? Since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 the theological issues have become increasingly entwined with the volatile political situation in the Middle East. Many Christians feel confused about the issue. This book attempts to explain, in as balanced a manner as possible, the strongly held beliefs of opposing positions so that the interested lay person may better understand the arguments. The setting is a series of imagined discussions between a modern Christian Zionist and a Christian non-Zionist, where they engage in lively, honest, and yet friendly debates around a dinner table, with the focus on the scriptural basis for their differing beliefs.

Jewish Science: Divine Healing in Judaism presents the fundamental teachings of Rabbi Alfred G. Moses. Jewish Science is a Judaic spiritual movement comparable with the New Thought Movement. It is an interpretation of Jewish philosophy that was originally conceived by Moses in response to the growing influence of Christian Science and New Thought. In Jewish Science Moses shows that the precepts of Christian Science and other New Thought denominations are drawn largely from the Hebrew scriptures. "Jewish Science views God as an Energy or Force penetrating the reality of the universe. God is the source of all Reality and not separate from but part of the world and Right thinking has a healing effect".Alfred Geiger Moses was the rabbi of the American Reform Congregation of the Gates of Heaven and Society for the Needy from 1901 to 1940. His interest in divine healing stemmed from the physical and mental problems from which he long suffered.

The concept of pluralism — embracing Jews from across the religious spectrum — is the wave of the future in the Jewish community… but the Academy for Jewish Religion has been living pluralism for 60 years. Pluralism has always been in its DNA. In 1956, at the height of denominationalism, the founders of the Academy for Jewish Religion realized that the future of the Jewish People was in acceptance and inclusiveness, cherishing and learning from the other. For sixty years the Academy for Jewish Religion has served within the Jewish community as the leader in the pluralistic training of rabbis, cantors and, more recently, graduate students. This volume celebrates this milestone anniversary.Studies in Judaism and Pluralism explores pluralism in theory and practice.

Justin M. Rogers Didymus the Blind and the Alexandrian Christian Reception of Philo

3452 руб.
Justin M. Rogers surveys commentaries on Genesis, Job, Psalms, Ecclesiastes, and Zechariah by Didymus the Blind (ca. 313–398 CE), who was regarded by his students as one of the greatest Christian exegetes of the fourth century. Rogers highlights Didymus’s Jewish sources, zeroing in on traditions of Philo of Alexandria, whose treatises were directly accessible to Didymus while he was authoring his exegetical works. Philonic material in Didymus is covered by extensive commentary, demonstrating that Philo was among the principle sources for the exegetical works of Didymus the Blind. Rogers also explores the mediating influence of the Alexandrian Christian tradition, focusing especially on the roles of Clement and Origen.

Robert Benne Paradoxical Vision

Robert Benne elaborates a basic theological-ethical framework for engaging the Christian vision with its surrounding public environment-political, ethical, cultural, and intellectual. He assesses the nature and challenge of Christian public policy at the dawn of the twenty-first century, defines his paradoxical vision and its legacy in modern America, and then describes practical ways in which religious traditions do, in fact, engage the public environment.

Milena Bubenechik Religion and the Formation of Early Modern Identities in The Island Princess and The Jew of Malta. The Significance of Christianity in the Early Modern Period

3952 руб.
This study depicts the significance of Christian and non-Christian relations in the formation of early modern identities in John Fletcher's The Island Princess and Christopher Marlowe's The Jew of Malta. Christian and non-Christian relations are explicitly demonstrated in the Elizabethan and Jacobean plays due to their incorporated issue of religion. The plays are set in the early modern period, during which many changes occur. The significance of Christian and non-Christian relations increase as the age of colonisation advances, and more territorial expansion and long-distance trade are undertaken. The encounter with different cultures and faiths awakes European consciousness to the existence of great non-Christian societies. This knowledge in turn evokes apprehension of the existing attitudes and beliefs in Christian Europe. Notions of race and religion begin to shift. Non-European peoples commence to be perceived as rivals to Christianity. Marlowe's and Fletcher's plays depict the anxieties towards the Other, where religion becomes the central issue of distinction. Marlowe's tragedy The Jew of Malta deals with Judaism and Catholicism and their mutual hostility. Fletcher's tragi-comedy The Island Princess deals with the pagan princess's conversion to Christianity. This study explores various aspects influenced and sustained by Christianity. Christian beliefs form a foundation for early modern European society. The emerging identities are indispen...

The first five books of the Old Testament have a very special place in both Jewish and Christian teaching. Deuteronomy or the "Second Law" represents a reworking of the first four "Books of the Law" to take account of the experience of the people of Israel as they became settlers in Palestine. Deuteronomy has a unity of insight and purpose that has had a great influence on Christian understanding, in particular with regard to the norms of behaviour expected in the Church and in a Christian society.

Overcoming age-old diverse opinions to the amalgamate ideas of Christian and secular counseling, Dr. John Pugh speaks volumes as he trains the prospective Christian counseling professional and lay counselor on true principles of Christian Spiritual Formation Counseling. Through an in-depth look at the true calling of Christian counselors, Dr. Pugh focuses on the factor that completes human analysis and is the ultimate cause of relational challenges: the Holy Spirit’s work in an individual’s life. So what is this bottom-line task for Christian counseling services? Not allowing the counselee to operate in secular defense mechanisms such as controlling, accusing, excusing, and pleasure seeking, but challenging him to discover the root cause and become sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s teaching in his life. Christian Spiritual Formation Counseling is the DSM for professional and lay counselors ready to launch their ministry in offering life-changing consultation for relational healing, a must-read for all students pursuing a counseling career.

David B. Ruderman Jewish Enlightenment in an English Key. Anglo-Jewry's Construction of Modern Jewish Thought

3214 руб.
Historians of the European Jewish experience have long marginalized the intellectual achievement of Jews in England, where it was assumed no seminal figures contributed to the development of modern Jewish thought. In this first comprehensive account of the emergence of Anglo-Jewish thought in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, David Ruderman impels a reconsideration of the formative beginnings of modern European Jewish culture. He uncovers a vibrant Jewish intellectual life in England during the Enlightenment era by examining a small but fascinating group of hitherto neglected Jewish thinkers in the process of transforming their traditional Hebraic culture into a modern English one. This lively portrait of English Jews reformulating their tradition in light of Enlightenment categories illuminates an overlooked corner in the history of Jewish culture in England and Jewish thought during the Enlightenment. Ruderman overturns the conventional view that the origins of modern Jewish consciousness are located exclusively within the German-Jewish experience, particularly Moses Mendelssohn's circle. Independent of the better-known German experience, the encounter between Jewish and English thought was incubated amid the unprecedented freedom enjoyed by Jews in England. This resulted in a less inhibited defense of Jews and Judaism. In addition to the original and prolific thinkers David Levi and Abraham Tang, Ruderman introduces Abraham and Joshua Van Oven, Mordechai Shnaber...

L. Michael White, G. Anthony Keddie Jewish Fictional Letters from Hellenistic Egypt. The Epistle of Aristeas and Related Literature

5164 руб.
The Greek text Epistle of Aristeas is a Jewish work of the late Hellenistic period that recounts the origins of the Septuagint. Long recognized as a literary fiction, the Epistle of Aristeas has been variously dated from the third century BCE to the first century CE. As a result of the work’s uncertain provenance, its epistolary features, and especially those in which the putative author, Aristeas, addresses his brother and correspondent, Philocrates, have largely been ignored. In light of more recent scholarship on epistolary literature in the Greco-Roman world, this volume presents for the first time a complete Greek text and English translation of, with introduction, notes, and commentary on, the Epistle of Aristeas, with key testimonia from Philo, Josephus, and Eusebius as well as other related examples of Jewish fictional letters from the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha.

Athalya Brenner presents fictionalized "autobiographies" of a dozen women and women groups in the Hebrew Bible, and also lets them share a conversation session. This allows her to include how these women have been interpreted - not only in the Bible itself, but also in Jewish and Christian traditions and by modern commentators. The result is a thoroughly engaging and insightful look at women, from a leading biblical interpreter who has a very creative edge to all her work.

Paths of Emancipation. Jews, States, and Citizenship

4539 руб.
Throughout the nineteenth century, legal barriers to Jewish citizenship were lifted in Europe, enabling organized Jewish communities and individuals to alter radically their relationships with the institutions of the Christian West. In this volume, one of the first to offer a comparative overview of the entry of Jews into state and society, eight leading historians analyze the course of emancipation in Holland, Germany, France, England, the United States, and Italy as well as in Turkey and Russia. The goal is to produce a systematic study of the highly diverse paths to emancipation and to explore their different impacts on Jewish identity, dispositions, and patterns of collective action.Jewish emancipation concerned itself primarily with issues of state and citizenship. Would the liberal and republican values of the Enlightenment guide governments in establishing the terms of Jewish citizenship? How would states react to Jews seeking to become citizens and to remain meaningfully Jewish? The authors examine these issues through discussions of the entry of Jews into the military, the judicial system, business, and academic and professional careers, for example, and through discussions of their assertive political activity.In addition to the editors, the contributors are Geoffrey Alderman, Hans Daalder, Werner E. Mosse, Aron Rodrigue, Dan V. Segre, and Michael Stanislawski.Originally published in 1995.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to aga...

Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: Within this thesis fundamentals of performance attribution are treated as well as the practical implementation of such a system. However, for many people who already asked to receive a copy of this work, the most important part will be the analysis of the (partly internet based) questionnaire revolving around performance attribution. The theoretical part contains the fundamentals of portfolio theory and the constructive CAPM, followed by basics of portfolio management. Next topics are the estimation of risk and performance for investment portfolios. The finishing touch is done by introduction of performance attribution theories handling both, equity and bond attribution. Within the practical part a short analysis of the affected asset management company is performed, accompanied by research of performance presentation. A questionnaire has been sent to 80 non-banks of the German HDAX index as well as to all members of the BVI. Furthermore an internet based version of the questionnaire has been introduced to a large number of institutional clients. The analysis of this questionnaire is one of the topics of this work. For the affected company the results from the questionnaire are used to identify the competitors’ possibilities and the clients’ needs, resulting in fundamental ideas for the catalogue of requirements. The analysis of the investment process and based on this the choice and the implementation of a performance attribution system are the la...

Scientific Study from the year 2017 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, , language: English, abstract: The advancement in computational linguistics and statistics has made an explicit impact on the emergence of corpus linguistics and the sophistication of its applications and studies involving not only pure linguistic issues but also areas related to real-life problems. One of these areas is authorship attribution studies.Authorship attribution is a domain of a study concerned with identifying the most likely author of a particular anonymous or disputed document from a set of suspected authors. To this end, several methodologies, techniques, and approaches have been devised and so often assessed on various sets of data to make sure of their effectiveness. Although the literature shows no consensus as to which methodology is the best among others, there is an overwhelming fact that all authorship attribution studies are grounded on the assumption that each author has a particular "linguistic fingerprint" which can be captured through detecting and measuring the linguistic clues hidden in their authorial styles. Taking an experimental framework, this study is an attempt to gauge the discriminating and clustering power of the selected methodology against a particular type of data covering samples of political journal articles. The corpus compiled is a special purpose one strictly controlled for genre, register, and date of publication. I...
