Ezekiel 6:1-7 and 36:1-15: The idea of the mountains in the Book of Ezekiel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract / Description of output

The article analyses the idea of the mountains of Israel in the Book of Ezekiel. There will be demonstrated that there are two concepts of the mountain(s) in the book. First of all, the personified mountains of Israel appear in older texts of the book, acting as mediators and representatives of the people and land alike. Yet in younger texts, the mountains are used as a landscape denomination. Furthermore, some texts of the book focus on the one and holy mountain, which attests to a re-orientation toward the city of Jerusalem.
