Fr. Dariusz DZIADOSZ – “Thy word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path” (Ps 119:105): A Theological Reading of the Idea of Light in the Traditions of the Old Testament

Cena brutto: 7,00 PLN za szt.

Light is one of the Hebrew Bible’s most complex symbols and the common literary theme in the ancient Near East civilizations (Sumer, Ugarit, Babylonia, Egypt). In many of its biblical figurative uses, the exact significance of light is uncertain, but often some links to physical light are present. There are four main thematic lines in the biblical concept of light: the integral relationship of light to God, its importance to the world and man, its rich symbolism, and the eschatological dimension.

Keywords: light, darkness, the ancient Near East civilizations, Hebrew Bible
