The Third Culture

(p.73) 3 Hebraism
Judaic Sources and Western Thought

Steven Grosby

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues for Hebraism as a historiograhpical category. In doing so, it considers the theological, political, historical and legal expressions of Hebraism such that, when taken together, one is entitled to evaluate Hebraism as a distinctive cultural pattern. The merit of this investigation rests upon the heuristic usefulness in 1) distinguishing Hebraism, as the third culture, from Hellenism (and Roman culture) and Christianity, at least as the latter is understood dogmatically; and 2) combining together a number of historical developments, for example, biblical criticism, nationality, common law, that are otherwise obscured by various categories such as ‘modernity’.

Keywords:   Hebraism, Third Culture, historiography, nationality, common law, biblical criticism
