Abstract The “teaching program” in Deuteronomy presupposes a degree of general literacy that goes beyond what was possible at the time of its production. This article investigates the possibility of seeing this program as a utopia meant for the reading elite rather than for the public. This is a desire in which “historically situated actors seek to reimagine their present and transform it into a plausible future”. It is a vision of a reading community based on the explication of the Book of the Torah of Moses.
