Emotions from Ben Sira to Paul

Although our human emotions greatly influence our lives, there have been few studies of emotions in biblical texts. Hence the 2010 meeting of the International Society for the Study of Deuterocanonical and Cognate Literature in Salzburg (Austria) was devoted to the topic of Emotions, Feelings, and Affects within Deuterocanonical and Cognate Literature . This pioneering volume arising from the conference includes medical, musical, philosophical, historical, archaeological, literary, and theological studies of emotions, with a major focus on biblical and related texts.
