Download e-book for kindle: Crépuscule de l'Histoire (ESSAIS) (French Edition) by Shlomo Sand,Michel Bilis

By Shlomo Sand,Michel Bilis

À l’heure où l’on débat du contenu des programmes d’histoire à l’école, où l’on voit repairé par l. a. loi ce qui doit être commémoré, Shlomo Sand s’interroge : tout récit historique n’est-il pas idéologiquement marqué ? Les sensibilités politiques et los angeles puissance des États ne pèsent-elles pas démesurément sur l. a. recherche en histoire et sur son enseignement ? Et, dans ces stipulations, peut-il exister une vérité historique moralement neutre et « scientifique » ? Tout en brossant le tableau d’une vaste histoire de l’Histoire, de los angeles Mésopotamie à nos jours, il dénonce les méthodes avec lesquelles les historiens européens ont construit les mythologies nationales modernes, ou encore l. a. tendance actuelle à faire de l’historien le prêtre de l. a. mémoire officielle ou le forgeron des identités nationales. Ce faisant, Shlomo Sand livre aussi un ouvrage body of workers, où los angeles polémique laisse position à l. a. confession, au bilan désillusionné de ses rapports plus que quarantenaires avec l. a. self-discipline, et à une query provocante : « Pourquoi encore étudier l’histoire aujourd’hui ? » Certainement pas par natural dévotion pour l. a. mémoire collective, suggère-t-il, mais pour mieux se libérer d’un goé fabriqué, et se tourner résolument vers l’avenir.

Read e-book online Der eschatologische Aspekt in der Bedeutung des PDF

By Margarete Roewer

ISBN-10: 3638890120

ISBN-13: 9783638890120

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Judaistik, be aware: 2,7, Freie Universität Berlin (Institut für Judaistik), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar, 19 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: „Ein Fest der Hütten sollst du für dich sieben Tage lang machen, wenn du erntest von deiner Tenne und von deiner Kelter. Und du sollst dich an deinem Feste freuen: du und dein Sohn und deine Tochter.....Sieben Tage sollst du für den Ewigen, deinen Gott, feiern, an dem Ort, den der Ewige sich erwählen wird. Denn es hat dich der Ewige, dein Gott, in all deinen Erträgen und in all dem Werk deiner Hand gesegnet – nun kannst du auch fröhlich sein.“[ Dtn sixteen, 13-15 ]
Dieser Passus beschreibt den Erntedank-Aspekt des Sukkot-Festes und es wird deutlich, dass das Herbstfest ein Fest der Freude sein soll.
Die Bezeichnung Sukkot-Fest leitet sich von sukkot ab und ist der hebräische Ausdruck für Hütten. Das Herbstfest wird auch chag ha-assif, Fest des Einsammelns genannt [ Ex 23,16; 34,22 ]. guy dankt Gott für das Einbringen der Ernte, v.a. der Obst- und Weinernte. Auch das Bitten um reichlich Regen gehört zum Zeremoniell der Feier und bezeichnet somit auch einen Fruchtbarkeitsaspekt. Denn die bei den Festumzügen mitgeführten Zweige von Bachweiden lassen an ein Fruchtbarkeits- und Regenritus denken und außerdem weist das Datum des Festes ( 15. Tischri ) auf den Beginn der feuchten Jahreszeit hin. Der herausragendste Aspekt dieses Festes aber basiert auf dem Gebot: „Sieben Tage lang sollt ihr in Laubhütten wohnen.“ [ Lev 23,42 ] Die Juden ziehen entsprechend für sieben Tage in eine vorübergehend errichtete Hütte ein. Die Hütte muss so beschaffen sein, dass sie kein festes Dach besitzt. Dabei müssen bestimmte Bauvorschriften beachtet werden. Das soll an die notdürftig erbauten Unterkünfte, in denen die Israeliten während ihrer Wanderung durch die Wüste vierzig Jahre lang lebten, erinnern, nachdem Gott sie aus Ägypten herausgeführt hatte. Durch das Errichten der Sukka und deren Behausung wird somit Zuversicht und Vertrauen in Gott erklärt und der Glauben an Gott demonstriert.
Es wird schon jetzt erkennbar, dass das Sukkot-Fest mehrere Bedeutungen und Interpretationen erfahren hat. guy kann sagen, das ursprünglich agrarische Fest wurde historisch-theologisch umgedeutet. Nun stellt sich die Frage: Hat das ursprüngliche Erntedankfest tatsächlich einen eschatologischen Charakter und wenn ja, ab wann hat es diese Bedeutung erhalten und vor allem warum?
