Prof. Dr. Loren T. Stuckenbruck
The focus of this chair is the cultural and tradition-historical research on the New Testament and early Christian literature in the context of Greek and Semitic -speaking Judaism during the Second Temple period. In particular, Hebrew and Aramaic texts from the Dead Sea are studied as well as related writings, especially sources which can be described as " apocalyptic „. Another research interest is the study of the history of reception and the application of some of these writings in medieval Judaism and Christian traditions. Of particular interest is the heritage of Jewish tradition in the abundant, but not sufficiently analyzed old Ethiopian manuscripts. A critical text edition and translation of 1 Enoch is currently being prepared with the support of a grant from the DFG (German Research Council).
