Claudia Bergmann is going to present a working paper on 'Messiah and Meal: Early Jewish and Christian Ideas of the Role of the Anointed One at the Meal in the World to Come'

My Habilitation „Endzeit als Mahl-Zeit“ investigates early Jewish texts that develop the idea of an abundant meal in the World to Come. Located at the intersection of Religious and Ritual Studies, it discusses the foods served at the utopian meal, the location imagined for the meal, the participants at the table and the hierarchies among them and attempts to develop a matrix, with which to understand this biblical and extrabiblical motif.
