A unique work that brings together a number of specialist disciplines, such as archaeology, anthropology, disability studies and psychiatry to create a new perspective on social and physical exclusion from society. A range of evidence throws light on such things as the causes and consequences of social exclusion stigma, marginality and dangerousness. It is an important text that breaks down traditional academic disciplinary boundaries and brings a much needed comparative approach to the subject.

Das Buch entkraftet die verbreitete Meinung, dass Menschen mit einer geistigen Behinderung in der Bibel nicht erwahnt werden: Bei naherem Hinsehen lasst sich in den biblischen Texten ein noch unausgeschopftes Potenzial erkennen, das gerade auch in heutigen ethischen Diskussionen zu beachten ist. Daruber hinaus werden auch schriftliche und andere archaologische Quellen aus dem Alten Orient, der Antike, der fruhen Kirche, der Talmud und der Koran herangezogen. Dabei fallt einiges Licht auf Problematiken, denen sich Menschen mit einer geistigen Behinderung aktuell ausgesetzt sehen. Indem gezeigt wird, wie und dass Menschen mit einer geistigen Behinderung heute einen eigenstandigen Zugang zu biblischen Texten finden, kommen sie auch selbst zu Wort. Edgar Kellenberger wendet sich mit seinen Beobachtungen, Erfahrungen und Forschungsergebnissen sowohl an ein breites Publikum von Interessierten und Betroffenen als auch an ein Fachpublikum. Edgar Kellenberger, Dr. theol., Jahrgang 1943, ist Pfarrer im Ruhestand. Er hat verschiedene Publikationen zu Themen des Alten Testaments und des Alten Orients veroffentlicht.

The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.

Deviant Burial In The Archaeological Record

This edited volume contains twelve papers that present evidence on non-normative burial practices from the Neolithic through to Post-Medieval periods and includes case studies from some ten countries. It has long been recognised by archaeologists that certain individuals in a variety of archaeological cultures from diverse periods and locations have been accorded differential treatment in burial relative to other members of their society. These individuals can include criminals, women who died during childbirth, unbaptised infants, people with disabilities, and supposed revenants, to name but a few. Such burials can be identifiable in the archaeological record from an examination of the location and external characteristics of the grave site. Furthermore, the position of the body in addition to its association with unusual grave goods can be a further feature of atypical burials. The motivation behind such non-normative burial practices is also diverse and can be related to a wide variety of social and religious beliefs. It is envisaged that the volume will make a significant contribution towards our understanding of the complexities involved when dealing with non-normative burials in the archaeological record.

The burgeoning field of disability studies has recently emerged within the humanities and social sciences and, as a result, disability is no longer seen as the biological condition of an individual body but as a complex product of social, political, environmental, and biological discourses. The groundbreaking essays of This Abled Body engage biblical studies in conversation with the wider field of disability studies. They explore the use of the conceptual category "disability" in biblical and Near Eastern texts and examine how conceptions of disability become a means of narrating, interpreting, and organizing human life. Employing diverse approaches to biblical criticism, scholars explore methodological issues and specific texts related to physical and cognitive disabilities. Responses to the essays by established disability activists and academics working in the social sciences and humanities conclude the volume. The contributors are Martin Albl, Hector Avalos, Bruce C. Birch, Carole R. Fontaine, Thomas Hentrich, Nicole Kelley, Janet Lees, Sarah J. Melcher, David Mitchell, Jeremy Schipper, Sharon Snyder, Holly Joan Toensing, Neal H. Walls, and Kerry H. Wynn.
