Abstract:

Examines the biblical notion of "nation" (Volk), as interpreted in the field of Old Testament research during the Nazi period, focusing on the view of Johannes Hempel. With the rise of the Nazi regime, the concept "Volk" lost its utopian character, with "nation" becoming the legitimate base of policy and legislation. Hempel recognized important opportunities for collaboration between state and church and referred to biblical research as his contribution to the political formation of German society. He attributed a significance to the Bible beyond history, especially due to God's estrangement from Israel after its disobedience, and its replacement by the nations, especially by Germany. His view represents a combination of "völkisch" ideology and biblical science. According to Hempel, the Bible, with its criticism of the Jewish people, is one of the most antisemitic texts.
