Abraham, the Nations, and the Hagarites: Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Perspectives on Kinship With Abraham (repost)

Abraham, the Nations, and the Hagarites: Jewish, Christian, and Islamic Perspectives on Kinship With Abraham By Martin Goodman, George H. Van Kooten, Jacques T. A. G. M. Van Ruiten, Albertina Oegema

English | 2010 | 577 Pages | ISBN: 9004188436 | PDF | 3 MB

Jews, Christians and Muslims describe their origins with close reference to the narrative of Abraham, including the complex story of Abraham's relation to Hagar. This volume sketches the history of interpretation of some of the key passages in this narrative, not least the verses which state that in Abraham all the nations of the earth will be blessed. This passage, which features prominently in Christian historiography, is largely disregarded in ancient Judaism, prompting the question how the relation between Abraham and the nations was perceived in Jewish sources.
Turning Points in Historiography: A Cross-Cultural Perspective.

Autor: Q. Edward Wang, "Turning Points in Historiography: A Cross-Cultural Perspective."
ISBN: 1580460976 | 2002 edition | PDF | 362 Pages | 1,71 MB

Until recently almost all histories of historiography have focused on national developments or at best introduced a comparative note from a limited Western perspective. Only in the last few years have there been serious attempts to transcend these borders. The present volume examines turning points in historical thought in a variety of cultures.The essays in the first half of the book deal with fundamental reorientations in historical thinking in the pre-modern period since Antiquity, specifically in ancient Greece and China and in medieval Christian Europe, the Islamic world and again China. The essays all proceed from the premise that historical thought in none of these cultures was static but underwent profound changes over time.The essays in the second part deal with historical writing beginning with the professionalization of history in the nineteenth century.
