Isaac figure del Redentore.
Wikipedia Reference to Article Metastasio's Old Testament Dramas by Siobhan Dowling Long in Article on Isacco Figura Del Redentore Ihre Darstellung verstärkt die emotionale und psychologische Spannung im Publikum. Zudem kam Metastasio damit dem Marienkult am Habsburger Kaiserhof entgegen.[6] Gamari, ein Freund Isaaks, fungiert als Mittler und Bote. Er erstattet Sarah Bericht über das Opfer[7] und wird als Vorläufer des Apostels Johannes dargestellt.[6] Auch die Rolle des Engels wurde erweitert. Da Gott nicht persönlich als Oratorienrolle in Erscheinung treten konnte, gibt dieser Abraham den Befehl, seinen Sohn zu opfern. Der in der Bibel geschilderte direkte Dialog Abrahams mit Gott entfällt somit im Oratorium.[7] Abraham dient im Vergleich mit der Passionsgeschichte als Symbol für Gott selbst.[6] Isaac figure del Redentore.

(2016)Critical Review: An Online Journal of the American Theological Library Association 9:2. - Review ofThe Bible in Music: A Dictionary of Songs, Works and More. The authors achieve their ends of presenting a volume that contains much about the Bible in music. The entries are engaging, and this reviewer learned interesting facts from reading them. It should be remembered, though, that this is not the end of research, but only a beginning, and even Internet searching can provide more information. But for a quick handy reference, or to generate ideas for a topic, the book gives a good first look. I would purchase the book for these reasons, for the small entries that include facts put into an easily readable style, facts that are not so readily accessed in this format elsewhere. 36.

The veteran biblical scholar John Sawyer and the Irish musicologist Siobhan Dowling Long have now added to this literature with their very helpful new dictionary. ..This is a dictionary to browse and enjoy. Its index of biblical references, for example, allows the reader to compare the ways that particular texts have been interpreted in different compositions. As befits a dictionary its entries are in alphabetical order so it is sometimes also rewarding to look at adjacent entries on a common theme but from very different historical eras. The two authors’ style of writing is accessible with technical terms explained carefully.This is emphatically a book written for a wide readership. ..[T]his dictionary will sit in a prominent position on my shelves waiting to be consulted again and again.

(2014)Review of Bible, Art, Gallery. Review of Biblical Literature. Reading this work was an enriching and enjoyable experience. As one who has an interest in art, especially art of the American Southwest, but even more so in biblical literature, I found this study of biblical art from select galleries to be most delightful. The goal of this work is to illustrate an interdisciplinary approach to biblical art that communicates or emphasizes different aspects of the biblical text (xix). This goal is achieved by explaining the philosophical approach and providing evidence. Bible, Art, Gallery is an valuable academic and practical tool, an instructive contribution for biblical scholarship, artistic study, and philosophical and theological studies as well. Bryan J.

(2014)Review of Bible Art Gallery. Journal of the Bible and its Reception. Three particular essays in this collection shine forth, at least to my reading and interests, in their relating of image and word, the illumination of contextual studies, and the managing of multiple influences on both artist and audience, that is, in the how of interpretation...Musicologist and religious educator Siobhan Dowling Long is the author of my third selection from this collection. In her analysis of Evaristo Baschenis’ Still Life with Musical Instruments, Long provides insights into the little-discussed symbolism of musical instruments in biblical paintings, if not in Western art more generally. As she carefully decodes the symbolism of the instruments present in this painting, the reader recognizes the correspondences between them and the human body. Thereby, both the author and earlier the painter advocated for the recognition that anatomy is theology and that the human condition is revealed in painting.
