With this critical essay, Daniele Da Ponte leads us to the discovery of a new way of looking at the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible. Shrewd, compelling, scratchy and at times ’uncomfortable’: the text offers not only a countercurrent vision of the Holy Scriptures, but also an interesting and structured historical excursus on the various theogonies of the first civilizations, starting from the Sumerian one. Referring to texts by established scholars , Da Ponte continues the tradition of ’voice outside the box’ which, many times in history, has led to brilliant intuitions, showing points of view that have built an original perspective on the most complex and disparate topics.
Daniele Da Ponte was born in Belluno on August 9, 1975. Since 2008 he has been an independent researcher: he has conducted passionate religious and historical studies. Il dito nella piaga is the debut essay in which he offers his personal criticism of the teachings of the catholic religion.
