Biographie

Reinhard Pummer s'intéresse, depuis ses études de docorat, à l'histoire des religions, notamment aux grandes religions du monde ainsi qu'aux méthodes et à l'historique de la discipline.  Il étudie depuis de nombreuses années une religion dérivée du Judaisme, le Samaritanisme. À l'instar du Christianisme, le Samaritanisme est né de la tradition biblique, il y a quelque deux mille ans pour devenir une religion à part entière. Aujourd'hui, il compte environ huit cents soixante adhérents, qui vivent sur le mon Garizim de Palestine et à Holon, une banlieue de Tel-Aviv en Israel.

Reinhard Pummer a publié ses recherches sur les débuts du Samaritanisme, ainsi que sur les Samaritains d'aujourd'hui. Il a notamment réuni une documentation illustrée des croyances et observances anciennes et modernes des Samaritains dans la série "Iconography of Religions". Il a dressé une bibliographie des études samaritaines; une monographie sur la mention des Samaritains chez les premiers auteurs chrétiens; une monographie des Samaritains de Flavius Josephus et un livre complet sur la tradition samaritaine, intitulé "Les Samaritains: un profil".
