Divine images create their own world of theological reflection and religious practice. Pictorial representations have to reduce complexity, yet at the same time they create their own complexity. The present volume examines this phenomenon with papers on fundamental issues and presentations of material from the Ancient Orient, Greece and the Hellenic world. Papers on the contact between Christianity and Islam in the matter of the veneration of images make clear what compensation strategies are developed when pictorial representations are subject to theological censure. The volume contains eighteen contributions from internationally renowned researchers writing in German and English.

The books of Haggai and Proto-Zechariah (Zechariah 1-8) belong to the post-exilic books of the Old Testament prophets. The topic of both books is the restitution of Judah and of the Jerusalem Temple. They share a common dating system which refers to the reign of the Persian King Darius I. This study reconstructs the genesis and development of these two prophetic books over a period of several centuries and integrates their various revisions into the historical context of the theology of ancient Judaism.

Die vorliegende dreisprachige Festschrift zu Ehren von Jean Zumstein umfasst 24 Studien zum Matthaus- und Johannesevangelium, zwei wichtigen Arbeitsfeldern des Zurcher Exegeten. Die Beitrage - neuere literaturwissenschaftliche Ansatze sind darin ebenso zu finden wie Arbeiten mit hermeneutischer und rezeptionsgeschichtlicher Ausrichtung - spiegeln aufs Beste das Anliegen Jean Zumsteins wider, in grosser methodischer Offenheit sorgfaltige Interpretationen der biblischen Texte mit theologischem Tiefgang zu verbinden. Les melanges trilingues en l'honneur de Jean Zumstein comprennent 24 etudes sur les evangiles de Matthieu et de Jean, deux des champs de recherche de predilection de l'exegete zurichois. Les contributions, qui font appel tant aux avancees recentes des sciences du langage qu'a des approches orientees par l'hermeneutique et l'histoire de la reception, refletent au mieux le souci qu'a Jean Zumstein de fournir des interpretations precises des textes bibliques permettant de saisir leur profondeur theologique, tout en preservant une grande ouverture methodologique. Andreas Dettwiler, Dr.theol., Jahrgang 1960, war Assistent bzw. Oberassistent bei Jean Zumstein in Neuenburg und Zurich. Von 1997 bis 2004 lehrte er an der Universitat Neuenburg. Seit 2004 ist er Professor fur Neues Testament an der Universitat Genf. Uta Poplutz, Dr.theol., Jahrgang 1971, war von 1998 bis 2004 Assistentin an der Universitat Wurzburg, von 2004 bis 2009 Assistentin bzw. Oberassistentin bei Prof. Jean Zumstein an der Universitat Zurich. Seit dem WS 2009/2010 ist sie Lehrstuhlvertreterin fur Neues Testament an der Universitat Mainz.

This volume brings together experts in the study of ancient prayers and divination methods to analyse the variety of means by which human beings sought to communicate with their gods and by which the gods were seen to communicate with their worshippers. In a departure from previous scholarship, the volume brings together the study of prophecy, as an intuitive form of divination, with the study of technical methods of communication and other forms of institutionalised communication such as prayer. Such a format allows divine-human communication to be studied in both directions simultaneously: the means by which the divine communicates to human beings through divination, and the means by which human beings communicate with the divine through prayer. This new perspective on the study of divine-human-divine communication allows scholars to better appreciate the way in which communication and the relationship between heaven and earth was conceived in the ancient near East.

How did Ancient Israel think of heaven? What place did it have in its view of the world? The Old Testament attests to a strikingly wide variety of concepts of heaven, and simultaneously to a very close association between heaven and earth. This study pays considerable attention to these topics and to the theme of heaven as God's realm and residence. These are some of the conclusions drawn: - for Ancient Israel, heaven and earth, (the principal components of the world) constituted a dynamic bipolarity, which was connected with mankind at one pole and with God at the other; - the Old Testament has no world-concept ("Weltbild"). It does not give a unanimous answer to the questions concerning the "how of the coming into existence of the cosmos and the "how of its structure and order. It does, however, imply a world-view ("Weltanschauung"), i.e. it answers the question: To "whom does the world owe its birth and existence?This study offers a careful discussion of the Old Testament terms and concepts relating to heaven, and the use of the word-pair: heaven and earth. By distinguishing between 'world-concept' and 'world-view' a fruitful contribution is made to the clarification and understanding of the Old Testament concepts concerning the cosmos.
