Book Presentation at the Jewish Museum Berlin
The Book of Job. Aesthetics, Ethics, Hermeneutics
21 January 2015, 19h30
Jüdisches Museum Berlin, Lindenstraße 9-14, 10969 Berlin
The biblical book of Job is a central reference point for dealing with adversity and personal disasters, for faith and apostasy. Why does the book play such a prominent role in the project of modernity – from the Enlightenment to the present day – in literature, art, and theater?
The two editors of the first volume of the new series Perspectives on Jewish Texts and Contexts Leora Batnitzky (Princeton University) and Ilana Pardes (Hebrew University of Jerusalem) will discuss these questions with Vivian Liska (University of Antwerp and Hebrew University of Jerusalem).
Moderated by Peter Schäfer, director, Jewish Museum Berlin.
