Über diesen Titel


This book derives from the Messenger Lectures at Cornell. In it Daube provides a synoptic view of nonviolent civil disobedience in the Ancient World. His learning lets him draw freely on Greek and Roman sources--theological, legal historical, literary, dramatic, and popular. From these he shows that there is hardly a variety of civil disobedience known today which is not anticipated in some form or another by the ancients. Is this book more than an entertaining exercise of scholarship? Professor Daube writes, ""To speak through historical figures is sometimes wiser than to declare in one's own name. The word 'person' originally means a mask . . . Civil disobedience can at all times profitably avail itself of persons."" David Daube (1909-1999) was Regius Professor of Civil Law at Oxford University, and later Professor of Law at the University of California at Berkeley School of Law.

About the Author:

David Daube (1909" 1999) was regius professor of civil law at Oxford and a fellow of All Souls' College. In 1970, he became professor in residence at Berkeley School of Law in the University of California as well as director of the Robbins Hebraic and Roman law collections from 1970 until 1981. From 1966 to 1978 he was also a visiting professor of history at the University of Constance. Daube's publications include "Studies In Biblical Law, Collaboration With Tyranny And Rabbinic Law," and "Civil Disobedience In Antiquity."

"Of all his contributions to scholarship, Daube's most insightful contributions may well be in the field of New Testament scholarship. He maintained an extraordinary openness to the non-Jewish world to an extent that is very rare among Rabbinic scholars and liberated both Jews and gentiles from prejudice and misconceptions."
" David Patterson, The Guardian
