Time and Place in Deuteronomy (JSOT Supplement)

The e-book is a literary and theological learn of the subjects of time and position, which goals to set the so-called 'centralization-law' of Deut 12-26 within the huge context of the booklet. The authors express that point and position are pervasive subject matters of Deuteronomy, a very important a part of its articulation of its figuring out of historical past, faith and ethics.

Sample text

CPL. 64 Fig. 29 Low-grade mylonite derived from granite. Porphyroclasts are composed of feldspar. The matrix contains fine-grained biotite and quartz. Sense of shear is sinistral as can be deduced from stair stepping to the left across the porphyroclasts. Deflection of the mylonitic foliation around the porphyroclasts (Fig. 30) causes the false impression of a late crenulation with upper left – lower right trending axial plane. Another trace of the axial planes of incipient extensional crenulation, trending upper right – lower left (visible in the upper ultramylonite band) is interpreted as related to C´ shear bands.

PPL. 58 Chapter 4 Fig. 19 As Fig. 18. Width of view 16 mm. CPL. 59 Low-Grade Mylonites Fig. 20 Detail of Fig. 19, showing a strongly deformed porphyroclast of plagioclase with accentuated undulose extinction and minor recrystallisation to a very fine-grained aggregate of new grains, especially along the upper contact. Dextral sense of shear is indicated by the stair stepping from left to right across the porphyroclast. Quartz (upper right part) is strongly deformed with only minor recrystallisation, pointing to low temperature conditions.

28. Width of view 25 mm. CPL. Chapter 4 | Low-Grade Mylonites 4 Low-Grade Mylonites The temperature range for these mylonites is thought to be roughly between 250 and 500 °C. There is a gradual transition between cataclasites and low-grade mylonites. Whereas many feldspar porphyroclasts in low-grade mylonites still show fracturing by cataclasis, the quartz is usually deformed by crystal-plastic processes as shown by its change in shape and by undulose extinction. At increasing temperature bulging recrystallisation starts to manifest itself along the lobate contacts and eventually recrystallisation by subgrain rotation takes over (Chapter 10).
