“Non-Mosaic Judasim” examines whether there were forms of Judean identity for which the Law of Moses was not the definitive criterion, and consider three test cases: the colony of Judeans at Elephantine, the wisdom literature prior to Ben Sira, and the early Enoch literature.
John Collins, Holmes Professor of Old Testament, Yale University Divinity School, will give the lecture as related to the construction of Jewish Identity in the Second Temple Period.
