Abstract The first part of this paper deals with the biblical description of the Priestly garments in Exod. 28 (39), presenting also selected explanations from later Medieval Commentary Literature like Rashi and Ramban. Since the biblical depiction attaches so much significance to the Priestly garments, it is not surprising that modern scholarship from the 19th century onwards has undertaken intensive historical-archaeological research as to their original appearance and possible reconstruction. However, at the latest from the date of the (re-)foundation of the
state of Israel, the question of the re-erection of the Temple and the reconstruction of the utensils for the sacrificial service had gained a more and more prominent role among Jewish Orthodoxy and fundamentalistic circles that nowadays make extensive use of archaeological studies to actually construct kosher garments as the ultimate prerequisite of the re-installation of the sacrificial cult as their main target. The Temple service that for centuries had been a mere exegetical issue had suddenly become a (theo-)political subject matter. In that, the
current debate on the rebuilding of the Temple had not only launched theological and hermeneutical problems but likewise had shown the unforeseeable political risk that is linked to the present-day question of the Temple Service.
