This volume contains contributions by a group of internationally acknowledged scholars dealing with the interpretation of healing and exorcism in texts relating to Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity, including the transmission, reception, and interpretation of the biblical texts in early Christian writings and artefacts.
This volume, originating from a conference on »Healing and Exorcism in Second Temple Judaism and Early Christianity« hosted by Örebro School of Theology (Sweden) in 2018, deals with the ideological and theological meaning of healing and exorcism in a historical, literary, and socio-cultural perspective. While the first part of the book focuses on Jewish and early Christian texts and themes, the second centres on the transmission, reception and interpretation of the biblical texts in early Christian writings and artefacts.
