Secondo una tradizione antichissima, il male ebbe origine quando tra gli uomini nacquero "ragazze belle di aspetto", e "gli angeli, figli del cielo, le videro e se ne innamorarono". Da quel momento, con los angeles discesa degli angeli e los angeles loro unione con gli esseri umani, il peccato si diffuse su tutta los angeles Terra. Questo mito delle origini, non incluso nel canone della Bibbia, è raccontato in uno dei testi attribuiti al patriarca Enoc in cui si intrecciano profonde riflessioni sul male e sul rapporto dell'uomo con Dio, scandagliate dagli ebrei fin dal pace del travagliato esilio babilonese. Non è un caso isolato. È da versioni parallele di tal fatta che fiorirono rami secondari e dimenticati della tradizione biblica, specchio della varietà d'idee che serpeggiava nella Palestina del giudaismo precristiano: visioni teologiche replacement, spesso apertamente confliggenti con le posizioni ufficiali, che approdano fino al II secolo d.C, ponendo le basi delle comunità protocristiane. Composizioni come le "apocalissi", i testamenti di patriarchi e le raccolte di proverbi e salmi si mescolano, sotto strati di secoli, a immaginifici miti e compilazioni cosmogoniche, fino a perdersi nel pace e scomparire sotto i colpi dell'ortodossia. Fu così che gli Apocrifi dell'Antico Testamento - qui raccolti in un nucleo di testi significativi, mai tradotti prima in italiano - furono trascurati according to millenni e rivalutati nella loro importanza cruciale solo dopo i rinvenimenti di Qumran.

Heist did not map in great detail his perception of the American civic, religious, or cultural landscape. Unlike many in 1919, he took no pains to draw borders around an American community and to insist that some or many or most could never belong. Yet his sermonic map of postwar America, like a great many maps created by nations possessing or aspiring to great power, was rife with judgments about place, privilege, and authority. 18 He not only granted the soldier the status of the “word” of the United States made ﬂesh with the exceedingly powerful historical and essentialist claims that status implies (“In the beginning was the Word.
This book considers soldiering as civil religious practice. It is about the things soldiers do, are asked to do, expected to do, and are portrayed doing to embody devotion to the nation. By examining individual and communal attempts to articulate these demands and to reconcile them with experiences, I hope to provide a fuller accounting of civil religion as a lived religion full of contradictions and aspirations, half-made connections, meanings forged and forgotten and forged again, at the same time that I provide an accounting of its Christian theological frameworks.
