Conference Proceeding: Alpha Beta of ben Sira

This year is the 500th anniversary of a publication of very unique and interesting book, Alpha Betah of Ben Sira. The book was published for the first time in Constantinople in 1519. It became very popular and was published many times in the 16th century. The book, which caused disagreement in the Middle Ages, is representative of what today we would call Pulp Fiction or low-quality literature. Yoram will discuss the importance of the book and more importantly, the social-historical context that caused this book to be published.
