January 21, 2021

4 - 5 pm (CET)

Prof. Dr. Menahem Ben Sasson

The readings of Eschatological works one faces not only with the end of time but also with concrete times, reflecting concepts of time used in given societies, historical events shaped as vaticinium ex eventu, names and places, serving as authentication means to the main message of these works. The presentation will try to present general eschatological time-concepts (the like of: Endtime, lost time, mythical time, flexible time) through few examples and to extend their meaning to historical analysis.
