9th Enoch Seminar

From tôrāh to Torah: Variegated Notions of Torah from the First Temple Period to Late Antiquity

The 9th Enoch Seminar and the resultant volume will examine the diverse understandings of tôrāh, beginning with the texts of the Hebrew Bible through to the Second Temple period and late antiquity, moving beyond traditional paradigms such as the early usage of tôrāh as general instruction vs. the transition to nomos, as “law,” or the development of a “normative” notion of Torah (capitalization intentional) in the Second Temple period. Participants are encouraged to rethink our scholarly assumptions and preconceptions on the topic and tackle the questions anew in light of more critical philological and historical approaches.

Chairs: William M. Schniedewind (UCLA) and Jason Zurawski (University of Groningen)
Date:June 18­-23, 2017
Location: Camaldoli, Italy
