Wisdom as mediator between the Earth and its Creator

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper



This presentation seeks to highlight the unique way in which the sages of Israel tried to reconcile their perception of creation with an anthropocentric vision of the world. Their references to the earth, the cosmos and creation in general are numerous and emerge in very diverse significant literary contexts. However, the uniqueness does not seem to lie in this frequency, but in the way this voice of creation appears, is disseminated and expressed. The specific cases of the book of Proverbs and the book of Job will be presented. This presentation as its main focus to demonstrate different angles with which biblical wisdom realizes the mediation between earth and God, its creator.
