Resumen

VENTER, Pieter M.. The function of the Ammonite Achior in the book of Judith. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2011, vol.67, n.3, pp.224-233. ISSN 2072-8050.

An intertextual analysis of the character of Achior in the book of Judith shows that the author of the book proposes a changed Judaean identity. The way in which he depicts the character of Judith and her alter ego, Achior, illustrates the author's ideology that people like proselytes and marginalised widows are not only to be included in the society, but can even be the leaders of the community. A nationalistic and exclusivist approach is entwined in the narrative with an inclusivist viewpoint propagating a new identity for the people of that time.
