With the biblical text of Isaiah 45 widely understood as a cohesive text characterized by a particular choice of words and repeated themes, it lends itself towards a linguistic and literary analysis, a task carried out here by Oosting (Leiden U., the Netherlands) with a focus on the syntactic role of Zion/Jerusalem as a "character" in the text and how corpus-linguistic analysis can inform literary interpretation of the role of Zion/Jerusalem. Although focused on the figure of Zion/Jerusalem, the study is also intended to demonstrate the value of the methodology presented (moving from syntactic to literary features) for interpreting other aspects of the biblical text.
