Genesis 22 remains within religious communities one of the most unsettling biblical texts; for a-religious readers, a curious account indeed; for anti-religious readers, cannon fodder for their arguments. Within theologically educated circles too, the meaning of the Akedah is by no means settled. Building forth on previously published work in which the author argued in favour of historically-oriented explanations for this text, rather than a-historical readings, in this contribution a number of such historically-oriented interpretations are taken into review.
