Sengende Hitze, Eiseskälte oder Mond? Zum Echo zoroastrischer eschatologischer Vorstellungen am Beispiel des koranischen zamharīr

Abstract: Abstract This article discusses eventual Qurʾānic allusions to Zoroastrian texts by using the example of zamharīr (Q 76:13). In the early tafsīr and ḥadīth-literature the term is most commonly understood as a piercing cold, which has frequently been interpreted as a punishment in hell. This idea, it is argued, has significant parallels to the concept of cold as a punishment in hell or to the absence of cold as a characteristic of paradise in the Avestan and Middle-Persian literature. In addition, Christian and Jewish texts that emphasize a similar idea and have not been discussed in research so far are brought into consideration. The article thus aims to contribute to the inclusion of Zoroastrian texts in locating the genesis of the Qurʾān – or early Islamic exegesis – in the “epistemic space ” of late antiquity.

TL;DR: In this paper, V. has written a book which may well become a standard text for students of the Classical Tradition, which relates the theory of Greek Rhetoric to the literature that was most affected by it, viz. oratory and historiography.
Abstract: dicendi (p. 168), 'Quousque tamen abutere Catilina, patientia nostra' (p. 262), ploche (p. 497 and passim), occupatio (for occultatio) (pp. 397, 496); and 'the other main protagonist' (p. 74). The writing occasionally lapses into colloquialism (e.g. 'having incriminated rhetoric good and proper' p. 99), and there is confusion in the order of clauses on p. 77, where V. writes (the subject of the previous sentence is Quintilian): 'In his fifth Verrine oration, describing the scourging of a Roman citizen, he judges that Cicero's narratio \"excites the warmest indignation\"...'. Not much has been missed in the proof-reading, but on p. 84 the opening sentence lacks a verb and in line 17 'unpredictably' should be read; on p. 164, lines 19-20 'the Middle Academy...to which'; and on p. 175 'democratic'. There is still need for a new study which relates the theory of Greek Rhetoric to the literature that was most affected by it, viz. oratory and historiography. But V. has written a book which may well become a standard text for students of the Classical Tradition.
