Auch in Israel haben die Toten eine Botschaft,
Antonianum, 74/2 (1999) p. 227-252
SUMMARY: This article sets forth and indicates different sources of Israelite relationship with death. It examines the archeological findings and messages of Israelite graves, the relevant texts from Kohelet and Wisdom, the related Tora texts, the interrogation of the dead Samuel in 1 Sam 28 and the traditions of the deaths of Moses and Eliah. The OT texts are understood within the perspective of the YHWH cult Centralisation in Jerusalem and the written Mose-Tora. A short insight in greek and roman tomb inscriptions and their explanation will make the interpretation-model of Centralisation more plausible.
