A Question of Identity: Social, Political, and Historical Aspects of Identity Dynamics in Jewish and Other Contexts

תקציר:

 

The quest for personal and social identity is an existential and fundamental

aspect of human existence. It affects how relationships are formed within

national, religious, and ethnic groups. This construct of identity is the focus of

the papers collected in this volume organized by our research group "Question of Identity",

which were offered at its 2017 international conference.  Topics explored

include: minority groups within the Persian Achaemenid Empire; Jews in

Sasanian Babylonia and Palestine; Jewish identity in the Hellenistic world;

archaeological tools for the study of identity; and challenges to dichotomous

views on religious and national identities in the Early Modern and Modern eras.
