Écriture et prophétie en Israël à la fin de l’époque monarchique

Abstract : Prophets living at the time when literacy expanded in Juda (whose writings are kept under the names of Proto-Isaiah and Jeremiah) had to deal with this new kind of transmission of knowledge, accomplishment of power, and self-affirmation of authority. This new technique, which they did not themselve master, soon began to compete with their own tools based on orality and spectacular living metaphors. A few passages belonging to these two biblical collections bear testimony of a conflict between the two systems. Two of these passages are presented here: 1. Isaiah’s Mirror (Is 8:1-4) 2. Jeremy’s fired scroll (Jer 36 passim)
