Erscheinungsformen und Handhabungen Heiliger Schriften
Vom Sefer Tora zum sefer: Die Bedeutung von Büchern im ‚Buch der Frommen‘ des R. Yehuda ben Shemu’el he-Chasid
This study focuses on Holy Scriptures as material objects. What are the contexts for the appearances and the usages of these objects? Is there a difference between Holy Scriptures and other objects, and is it inevitably their sacred content that renders them holy? Interdisciplinary perspectives offer new incentives for understanding the material phenomenon of the ‘Holy Scriptures’.
