Ontology of Space in Biblical Hebrew Narrative by Luke Gartner-Brereton

Book Description

'Space', as a structural category, has been overlooked in the field of biblical studies. 'The Ontology of Space in Biblical Hebrew Narrative' offers a theoretical and methodological analysis of the function of narrative space in the Hebrew Bible. The book argues that the structure of biblical Hebrew narrative operates under similar mechanical constraints to those of a stage-play - 'space' is central, characters are fluid, and 'objects' within the narrative tend to take on a deep internal significance. The book presents two case studies - Genesis 28:10-22 (the Bethel narrative) and the book of Ruth - to outline the primacy of space within the Hebrew aesthetic. 'The Ontology of Space in Biblical Hebrew Narrative' will be of interest to students and scholars of the Hebrew Bible seeking a fresh approach to the text and its narrative structure.

Ontology of Space in Biblical Hebrew Narrative by Luke Gartner-Brereton Ontology of Space in Biblical Hebrew Narrative, Hardback (April 2008)

Assumes that biblical Hebrew narrative, in terms of its structure, tends to operate under similar mechanical constraints to those of a stage-play; wherein 'space' is central, characters are fluid, and 'objects' within the narrative tend to take on a deep internal significance. This work uses "Genesis 28.10-22" and the book of "Ruth" as test cases.
