Shame is of great and often underestimated value – in ancient Israel and its neighbouring cultures as well as today. This volume looks into the significance of shame in the tradition of ancient Israel in the context of its environmental cultures and explores similarities and differences.Furthermore it examines, how ancient texts from Israel and environment may reflect current experiences of shame. Vice versa it offers insights of modern sociology, psychology and philosophy which help to better understanding the significance of shame in those ancient texts.
