Ancient Prophecy: Near Eastern, Biblical, and Greek Perspectives

Research output: Book/ReportBookScientificpeer-review

Abstract

Martti Nissinen, Ancient Prophecy offers the first comprehensive treatment of the ancient prophetic phenomenon as it comes to us through biblical, Near Eastern, and Greek sources. It provides a thorough overview of textual sources including the newest publications of cuneiform tablets and Greek inscriptions
The book Includes comparative chapters on topics such as prophetic ecstasy; temples as venues of prophetic performances; prophets and political rulers; and the prophets' gender which can be either male, female, or non-gendered. It argues for a common category of ancient Eastern Mediterranean prophecy, even though the fragmentary and secondary nature of the sources allows only a restricted view to it.
