Overview

English summary: This new edition of Martin Hengel's classic Die Zeloten (ET The Zealots , 1989) makes a seminal work in the field of Ancient Judaism available again, in German, fifty years after its first appearance. The new edition contains the original text with corrections. An additional appendix by Roland Deines, one of Professor Hengel's students, describes the impact this book has had on the study of the Jewish freedom movement in the first century AD that led to the outbreak of the first Jewish revolt against Rome, and how the scholarly debate has developed since its initial publication. Die Zeloten represents the origin of Hengel's lifelong interest in Jewish messianism and the study of the messianic claims of Jesus. German description: Die vorliegende Neuauflage von Martin Hengels epochemachender Untersuchung uber die Zeloten und die judische Freiheitsbewegung im ersten nachchristlichen Jahrhundert ist auch 50 Jahre nach ihrem Erscheinen fur die Forschung noch immer unentbehrlich. In ihr wurde zum ersten Mal im Detail das Profil der vierten judischen Partei neben den Pharisaern, Sadduzaern und Essenern historisch und theologisch beschrieben. Hengel argumentierte, dass die treibende Kraft hinter dem judischen Aufstand gegen Rom nicht in erster Linie soziale Unruhen waren, sondern theologische Motive aus den judischen heiligen Schriften, die von den Zeloten in ein konkretes theo-politisches Programm mit messianischen Anspruchen weiterentwickelt wurden. Wer immer sich mit der judischen Geschichte des Heiligen Landes im 1. Jahrhundert unserer Zeitrechnung beschaftigt, kommt an diesem Werk nicht vorbei. Neben seiner Bedeutung fur die judische Geschichte stellt dieses Buch zugleich den Auftakt fur Hengels lebenslange Beschaftigung mit den judischen Messiaserwartungen und seinen Studien zum historischen Jesus und der Entstehung der Christologie dar.Die deutsche Neuauflage von 1976 ist seit langerem vergriffen. Noch zu Lebzeiten Martin Hengels und in Absprache mit dem Autor hat sich der Verlag daher entschieden, eine behutsam bearbeitete Neuauflage herauszubringen. Roland Deines skizziert in einem Nachwort die Wirkungsgeschichte des Buches, die durch es ausgelosten Kontroversen sowie den aktuellen Stand der Erforschung des judischen Aufstandes gegen Rom.Mit der Aufnahme dieses Titels ist nun das gesamte Werk von Martin Hengel bei Mohr Siebeck erhaltlich.
