This panel focuses on perceptions and conceptions of prophecy in Early Judaism and Christianity. Since the earliest strata of its history, the phenomenon of prophecy has played a key role in the formation of Israelite society and identity. In the post-exilic period and in the context of the formation of Early Judaism, the phenomenon continued to play a foundational role, but also acquired new hues and nuances, serving also to designate a particular kind of literature. It is primarily as a type of literature that prophecy became instrumental in the formation of Christianity, which appropriated texts and traditions and incorporated original hermeneutical elements that were foundational in the construction of Christian theology and identity. The papers in this session seek to offer fresh insights on views of prophecy (whether as a social and religious phenomenon or as a literary genre) and of prophets (whether as individuals or as a corpus of sacred texts).
