    DescriptionIn this in-depth exploration of holiness in the context of rabbinic Judaism, Hannah K. Harrington places the rabbinic concept of holiness alongside other notions of the sacred in the Graeco-Roman world. Holistic and yet detailed, this volume provides a much-needed comparative view of this subject during a key period in the development of the Jewish religion.

    Review quote
    ""I am grateful to the editors of the Quarterly for having sent it (this book) to me, and I recommend it to interested Orthodox readers for an education about the often startlingly familiar ways in which our kinfolk in the "Isreal of God" approach the Holy One of Moses and the prophets.." -Hieromonk Alexander, St. Vladimir's Theological Quarterly
