4:30 PM - 6:00 PMAncient Jewish Esotericism: Some Reflections

Location: Withers 331

This talk will take account of the possibility that the apocalypses, and certain of the wisdom books, preserved hints at the existence of inner, secret traditions. Such traditions are included within 'revealed wisdom' but are not coextensive with the contents of the apocalypses, though they overlap with them. Moreover, we may ask: Do traditions like those about Enoch and Ezra transmitting their books reflect any social reality? Was there really a group of the 'wise among the people' and, if there was, did these apocalypses constitute its teachings? A presentation by Prof. Michael Stone, Hebrew University.
