Historical criticism of the Bible has long sought to uncover the human authors behind the text. But how might the »death of the author,« so forcefully declared by Roland Barthes over fifty years ago, change the contours of this search? This volume brings together leading experts in the Hebrew Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, cuneiform texts and cognate literature to reimagine the literary and discursive functions of »authorship« in ancient Israel.
