Legends of Galilee, Jordan and Sinai

כריכה קדמית
Jewish Publication Society of America, 1 בינו׳ 1978 - 407 עמודים

With detailed source of each legend in 29 pages.

« Almost 400 legends about places in Galilee, Jordan and Sinai, encompassing such evocative sites as Haifa, Acco, Tyre, Nazareth, Capernaum, Tiberias – the list is as varied as it is fascinating. This work draws the classical Hebrew literature of the Scriptures, Mishnah, Tosefta, Talmud and Midrash. In addition the author provides material from Middle Ages pilgrims as well as Arab folkloric tales.

There are tales of holy sanctuaries, of fabled desertlands, of storied bodies of water (Red Sea, Sea of Galilee, River Jordan), of biblical heroes and heroines (Mose, King David, Deborah, Elijah, Job). There are enchanting retellings ~ the church that sailed in the air, a rock that belonged to a colony of ants ~ to add to history and geography knowledge of the land. »
