Lord’s Table: The Meaning of Food in Early Judaism and Christianity
Gillian Feely-Harnik (au)
How do people come to attribute meaning to food? What cultural significance did food hold for early Jews and Christians? How did they use food and dietary laws to address major questions of identity and affiliation? In this classic work of anthropology, Prof. Feeley-Harnik examines these and other probing questions and shows how the religious symbolism of food provided a sense of community during Biblical times. This book has been praised as “At once a searching essay in the anthropology of food and an imaginative inquiry into the nature of religion and group identity . . . . Biblical scholars and serious students alike will finish this book enlightened and impressed.” “One of the most fascinating books to appear on the subject of food and eating.”
