Product description

Review

This short monograph is a welcome contribution to an exciting research area, that is, the study of magic in ancient religions. Whereas studies of Jewish religion in the Second Temple or late antique periods can profit from a relatively rich set of literary and archaeological data (although often struggling with great difficulties of interpretation), Nigosian has decided to explore a range of biblical material (contained in the OT) that is not covered by most other works and is excluded from almost any other source of evidence. "The Catholic Biblical Quarterly""

In order to provide biblical students and others with basic information, Nigosian (biblical and Near Eastern religions, U. of Toronto-Victoria College) assembles, classifies, and critically examines Old Testament evidence for the occult functionaries and their activities in ancient Israelite religion. Among his topics are exorcising demons, cleromancy (casting lots), and necromancers. "Reference & Research Book News""
