(p.11) 1 High Priesthood According to the Priestly Writer
Zadok's Heirs

Deborah W. Rooke (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

Discusses the Priestly writer's presentation of the high priesthood, which is primarily embodied in the figure of Aaron. Treats the relevant material in three categories—legal, narrative, and genealogical—and covers topics such as the high priest's ceremonial garments, his particular sacral rights and duties, and terminology used for the high priest. Concludes that the Priestly writer portrays the high priest as a purely cultic figure, who is subject to the non‐cultic leadership, and who is primus inter pares in relation to his fellow priests.

Keywords:   Aaron, genealogy, high priest's ceremonial garments, high priest's duties, Priestly writer, terminology for high priest
