Review of Gelardini's “Verhärtet eure Herzen nicht”

Carl Mosser has written a very critical review of Gabriella Gelardini's monograph “Verhärtet eure Herzen nicht”: Der Hebräer, eine Synagogenhomilie zu Tischa be-Aw in the Brill Biblical Interpretation Series.

Gelardini identifies Hebrews as a synagogue homily preached on Tisha b'Av (the Ninth of Av), the day commemorating the destruction of the first and second Jerusalem temples. Mosser, however, detects numerous flaws in Gelardini's thesis.
