In this second of a three-volume work, Vicchio addresses the Job traditions as interpreted in the period of the Middle Ages--in Jewish, Christian and Islamic sources. From the Vulgate to the Qur'an, from Maimonides to Calvin, Vicchio addresses the complexities of the “reception history” of intriguing work. Two appendices address how Job has been treated throughout history in literature, in drama, and in medicine.
Volume 1: Job in the Ancient World
