Евреи и гиганты: библейские события и версии истории

Диалог со временем. 2016. № 56. С. 72-94.

The article deals with the ways such 17th century authors as Isaac La Peyrère or Giambattista Vico envisaged the history of Jewish civilization. Focusing primarily on La Peyrère's “preadamite” writings and the Vichian treatise On the consistency of philology (second part of De constantia jurisprudentis), we set ourselves the goal to point out the line of historical development located between two major tracks of the Vichian history of nations – that of the gentiles and that of the Jews. Our study made it possible to consider the Vico's science as resulting of an interaction of various disciplinary palimpsests and discursive splinters, cut short and not written to the end – Protestant exegesis or historiosophy of the prisca sapientia among them.
