ABOUT THIS BOOK

Essential reading for scholars and students interested in sociology and biblical studies


In this collection scholars of biblical texts and rabbinics engage the work of Barry Schwartz, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Sociology at the University of Georgia. Schwartz provides an introductory essay on the study of collective memory. Articles that follow integrate his work into the study of early Jewish and Christian texts. The volume concludes with a response from Schwartz that continues this warm and fruitful dialogue between fields.


Features:



  • Articles that integrate the study of collective memory and social psychology into religious studies

  • Essays from Barry Schwartz

  • Theories applied rather than left as abstract principles
