Sectarianism in Early Judaism by David J. Chalcraft
Book Description'Sectarianism in Early Judaism' applies recent developments in sociological analysis to sect formation and development in early Judaism. The essays examine sectarianism in a wide range of different forms: the many layers of redaction in religious texts; the development arcs of sectarian groups; the role of sectarianism across Jewish history as well as in the time of the Second Temple; and the relations within and between sects and between sects and wider society. The book aims to establish a conceptual framework for the analysis of sects and, in doing so, makes particular use of the work of Max Weber and Bryan Wilson, exploring the limits of their typologies and sociological theories.

Author Biography - David J. Chalcraft
David J. Chalcraft studied Biblical Studies at the University of Sheffield before carrying out postgraduate research at the University of Oxford under the supervision of the late Bryan Wilson. He is Professor of Classical Sociology at the University of Derby and a Visiting Fellow at Lancaster University (2003-5). A recognised expert on Max Weber, being a founding co-editor of Max Weber Studies, his research explores the interface between sociology and biblical studies, utilising the exegetical methods of the latter in interpreting classical sociology and tracing biblical ideas in sociological texts on the one hand, and the theoretical insights of the former in interrogating biblical texts and social formations, and considering the role of the Bible in culture and society, on the other.
