Translated title of the contribution: Interpretation attempt of Leviticius 10. The burned goat and not eating it

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


By analysing the story of Leviticus 10, and in particular that of the tragic death of Nadab and Abihu (Lev 10:1-2), Françoise MIRGUET offers her interpretation of the whole chapter, relating the opening scene to the following prescriptions and reproaches uttered by Moses. She also examines the relationship between this episode and that of the molten calf (Exodus 32) in order to propose the hypothesis of a global interpretation of the two stories.
