10 December: Lecture Series - Torah and Cross. Politics and Life Worlds. Jewish Identity Formations and Jewish-Christian Boundaries in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Period

Monday, 10 December, 17:15, Room 2.205 (Unipark) Univ.-Prof. Dr. Susanne Plietzsch (Salzburg) The Midrash in the Pessachhaggada

Die Pessachhaggada, die jüdische narrativ-liturgische Interpretation der biblischen Exodusgeschichte, enthält eine äußerst kunstvoll strukturierte Passage, in der die Bibelstelle Dtn 26,1-8 – beginnend mit der berühmten Wendung „ein umherirrender Aramäer war mein Vater“ (gelesen als: „ein Aramäer wollte meinen Vater vernichten“) – mit Versen aus den Kapiteln Ex 1-12 und anderen Schriftversen erklärt wird. Der Vortrag soll zeigen, wie diese stilistisch wie theologisch außergewöhnliche Passage frühmittelalterliche jüdische Identität entwirft, indem sie das Motiv einer zeitlos aktuellen Verfolgung mit einer in der Exodusgeschichte begründeten endzeitlichen Befreiungsutopie verbindet.
