Journal of Ancient Judaism

The Journal of Ancient Judaism (JAJ) addresses all issues of Jewish literature, culture, religion, and history from the Babylonian exile until the Babylonian Talmud. As a cross disciplinary journal it is of interest for all those concerned with Biblical, Jewish, religious, cultural and historical studies. The journal welcomes submissions in any of these subject areas and disciplinary methods. Articles that reflect the journal’s interdisciplinary character by working across multiple fields or disciplines or introducing new and innovative disciplinary approaches to the study of ancient Judaism are especially encouraged. The journal appears three times per year (in April, August, and December) and includes one annual theme issue (usually prepared by guest editors). To propose a topic for a theme issue, please contact the editors.

Genealogy versus Merit? On the Role of Lineage in Ancient Judaism
Guest Editor: Katell Berthelot (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique)
The articles gathered in this theme issue explore the dynamics of genealogy and merit in Jewish texts from the Hellenistic and Roman periods, in relation to individual, family, and ethnic self-definitions, as well as individual and group strategies meant to establish legitimacy, prestige, or control over other segments of society. Contributors include: Benedikt Eckhardt, Katell Berthelot, Yael Wilfand, Yedidah Koren, Moshe Lavee, and Geoffrey Herman.
