עבודתי מוקדשת לניתוח של קטגוריות היסוד של הפולחן במקרא, ולאפיון התפתחותן בספרות הבתר-מקראית. אני מבקש לשרטט את קווי המתאר של המפה הריטואלית העומדת בלב ההוויה היהודית באמצעות עיונים דיאכרוניים, שראשיתם בספרות המזרח הקדום ואחריתם בספרות הבית השני ובספרות התנאית, ולחקור שאלות המתייחסות לתפר שבין האתי, הפולחני והפוליטי.
