Priests in Exile is the first comprehensive scholarly opus in English to reconstruct the history of the mysterious Temple of Onias, a Jewish temple built by a Jerusalemite high priest in his Egyptian exile that functioned in parallel with the Temple of Jerusalem. Piotrkowski’s book addresses a topic that is mysterious, important and anomalous: a Jewish community of mercenary priests in the (Egyptian) Diaspora in which the priestly sacrificial ritual was carried out daily over a period of more than two hundred years until the first century CE, outlasting the Jerusalem Temple by about three years. Although the book focuses on the very circumscribed topic of the parallel Temple it casts a wide net, placing the story in the context of Jewish Diaspora life in ancient times. Ancient topics and texts are brought to bear, including papyri, epigraphy, archaeology, as well as the modern literature. Piotrkowski throws new light on a fascinating episode of ancient Jewish history that is usually left in the dark.

"The Apollos Old Testament Commentary aims to take with equal seriousness the divine and human aspects of Scripture. It expounds the books of the Old Testament in a scholarly manner accessible to non-experts, and shows the relevance of the Old Testament to modern readers. Written by an international team of scholars, the commentaries are intended primarily to serve the needs of those who preach from the Old Testament. They are equally suitable for use by scholars and all serious students of the Bible." -- Back Cover

Change is the stock in trade of historians. If we have no concept of change, and no sense of the past as different from the present, then consequently we cannot have an historical sense in the deepest meaning of the term. However, historians rarely discuss change per se in very explicit terms. What constitutes change? How do you know when change has happened? How do you define or measure it? Are there different kinds of change? These are some of the issues explored in this book. Ireland has been in a process of extremely rapid cultural change in recent decades - whether in the precipitate decline in the influence of the Catholic Church or in the rapid adoption of globalised market culture. Reflecting on the general nature of such change is a prerequisite for understanding Ireland's place in a new cultural economy. This collection is based on papers presented to the 25th biennial Irish Conference of Historians, held at the National University of Ireland, Galway, May 2001.

Hagiography of Narcisa the Beautiful

Author: Mireya Robles

Playing on the rich Latin American literary tradition of the Saint's Life, Cuban writer Mireya Robles creates a humorous, ultimately horrifying vision of the nuclear family in this innovative novel, set in Cuba's asphyxiating provincial society during the nineteen fifties. The philandering father, the sensitive yet sadistic older brother, the mother living on radio soap operas, the pretty, empty-headed younger sister - all are seen through the eyes of Narcisa, the relentlessly optimistic and ecstatic ugly duckling of her family. Narcisa's imagination both endows and parodies her surroundings with rich comedy and grotesqueness.

The 8th-century chronicle Liber Historiae Francorum is one of three major historical works that have survived 250 year rule of the Merovingians in early medieval France. Using it as a guide through the complex contemporary sources, Dr. Gerberding presents a highly accurate view of the society in which Charlemagne's ancestors set themselves on the road to power, throwing new light on the early family members themselves and on the factors which directed politics in the Frankish "dark ages."

"Examining Chaucer's House of Fame, McTurk uncovers parallels involving eagles, perilous entrances, and scatological jokes about poetry in the Topographia Hibernie by Gerald of Wales, Snorri Sturluson's Edda, and the Old Irish sagas Fled Bricrend and Togail Bruidne Da Derga. He compares The Canterbury Tales, with its use of the motif of a journey as a framework for a tale-collection, with both Snorri's Edda and the Middle Irish saga Acallam na Senorach. McTurk presents a compelling argument that these works represent Irish traditions which influenced Chaucer's writing." "In this study, McTurk also argues that the thirteenth-century Icelandic Laxdoela saga and Chaucer's Wife of Bath's Prologue and Tale each descend from an Irish version of the Loathly Lady story."
