The Story of Sukkot: The Setting, Shaping, and Sequel of the Biblical Feast of Tabernacles, Volume 8; Volume 34
"Hakan Ulfgard traces the ideological development of the biblical Feast of Tabernacles (sukkot) from c. 600 BCE until c. 500 CE. He analyzes all biblical and para-biblical texts related to sukkot, taking into account also questions concerning calendars and the general politico-historical framework. This results in some specific conclusions on the relation between sukkot and the calendar, sukkot and the temple, sukkot and the Torah, and sukkot and history. In this way, sukkot functions as a 'peephole' into the ideological development of emerging Judaism, as reflected in the biblical and para-biblical writings."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
