Description
Summary:Introduction -- Conceptual Frameworks for Studying Mobility, Migration, and Religion in the Ancient Past -- Cultures of Mobility in the Lands Around Canaan -- Religion(s) and Religiosity(ies) on the Move in the Lands around Canaan -- Cultures of Mobility and Migration in Canaan, Israel, and Judah -- Yahweh: Israel's Mobile Deity -- Mobility-Informed Religiosity(ies) in Israel and Judah -- Conclusion: Final Reflections on Divinity and Religiosities in Contexts of Mobility.
"This book examines the relationship between mobility, lived religiosities, and conceptions of divine personhood as they are preserved in textual corpora and material culture from Israel, Judah, Egypt, and Mesopotamia. By integrating evidence of the form and function of religiosities in contexts of mobility and migration, this volume reconstructs mobility-informed aspects of civic and household religiosities in Israel and its world. Readers will find a robust theoretical framework for studying cultures of mobility and religiosities in the ancient past, as well as a fresh understanding of the scope and texture of mobility-informed religious identities that composed broader Yahwistic religious heritage. Cultures of Mobility, Migration, and Religion in Ancient Israel and Its world will be of use to both specialists and informed readers interested in the history of mobilities and migrations in the ancient Near East, as well as those interested in the development of Yahwism in its biblical and extra-biblical forms"--
