Book Launch: Benjamin Wold, 4QInstruction: Divisions & Hierarchies
Tuesday, 29 January 2019, 6:30pm
The launch of Ben Wold’s 4QInstruction: Divisions and Hierarchies (Brill, 2018) by Dr Garrick Allen (DCU) organised by the School of Religion.
In 4QInstruction: Divisions and Hierarchies, Benjamin Wold challenges the interpretation of 4QInstruction as a deterministic and dualistic composition. In a re-examination of key fragments he offers new reconstructions and translations that indicate 4QInstruction envisaged wisdom available to all humanity, divisions among humankind and communities as the result of individual adherence to wisdom, and a hierarchy of authority as a result of individual merit.
