Through the Prism of Wisdom: Elijah the Prophet as a Bearer of Wisdom in Rabbinic Literature

The Institute for Advanced Study, in partnership with Gorgias Press, presents the 2022 online lecture program.

This presentation will explore the nature of the Elijah traditions in rabbinic literature and their connection to the wisdom tradition. By examining the diverse Elijah traditions in connection to the wisdom and apocalyptic traditions, I aim to shed new light on the manner in which Elijah’s role developed in rabbinic literature.

Hosted by: Sabine Schmidtke (School of Historical Studies, IAS) and George A. Kiraz (School of Historical Studies, IAS and Editor-in-Chief, Gorgias Press) in cooperation with Angelos Chaniotis (School of Historical Studies, IAS)
