Abstract

Starting from the Book of Leviticus, where we find a parallel between the cleansing of the leper ‎and the consecration of the high Priest, early rabbinical exegesis, and patristic writings, concluding ‎with St. Jerome’s translation of Isaiah 53:4, disease of leprosy, turned out to be an integral part of the ‎messianic idea.
This anthropological-theological study examines the ambivalent relation that exists between the disease of leprosy and the messianic idea, exploring early Christian and rabbinic sources.
