Davila’s Hekhalot translation and his upcoming Edinburgh seminar paper thereon


(Matthew Novenson) Good news regarding the accessibility of primary texts for Jewish studies: James Davila’s Hekhalot Literature in Translation: Major Texts of Merkavah Mysticism is due out from Brill later this year. As it happens, just two weeks from today, on 25 January, Davila will be in Edinburgh giving a seminar paper on the topic “Translating the Hekhalot Literature” (11:15am in the Martin Hall, New College). It promises to be an interesting firsthand account of an important translation project. As always, visitors are most welcome.
