Omtale: Lamentations Through the Centuries
Covering a rich landscape of literary, theological and cultural creativity, the authors explore the astonishing variety of interpretations inspired by Lamentations, one of the shortest books in the Bible. * Features a wealth of reactions covering two and a half millennia to this ancient text's influential and unflinching account of the devastation wreaked by war * Explores a kaleidoscope of examples ranging from the Dead Sea Scrolls; Yehudah Halevy; John Calvin; and composer, Thomas Tallis; through to the startling interpretations of Marc Chagall; contemporary novelist, Cynthia Ozick; and Zimbabwean junk sculpture * Deploys "reception exegesis", a new genre of commentary that creatively blends reception history and biblical exegesis * Offers sensitive treatment of challenging theological and psychological responses to one of the most disturbing books of the Hebrew Bible * Widely relevant, with nuanced reflections both religious and secular on human suffering and the disasters of war
