The South-Eastern Samaria Shoulder, from Wadi Rashash to Wadi 'Aujah
Authors: Shay Bar and Adam Zertal Z"l
The book presents the results of a complete detailed survey of the eastern region of Samaria, mainly the South-Eastern Samaria Shoulder, from Wadi Rashash to Wadi 'Aujah within the territory of Israel/Palestine. This project, in progress since 1978, and covering 2500 sq. km, is a thorough, metre-by-metre mapping of the archaeological-historical area between the River Jordan and the Sharon Plain, and between Nahal 'Iron and the north-eastern point of the Dead Sea. This territory is one of the most important in the country from the Biblical and archaeological view; and the survey is a valuable tool for scholars of the Bible, Archaeology, Near Eastern history, tourism, and other aspects of the Holy Land.
This volume in the ASD series (VIII, 1) publishes texts by Erasmus related to the Fathers of the Church. Erasmus himself considered these among his major contributions to Christianity and the Church. He edited many Fathers and wrote Vitae of three theologians: John Chrysostom, Origen and – his most important one – Jerome. He provides portraits of the theologians and his views on them, but also a kind of self-portrait. He even forged a text himself: ‘Cyprian’s De duplici martyrio’. His many editions of the Church Fathers and other theologians contain prefaces which provide us with information about the theologians, and with remarks on Erasmus’ views on them. Thus, we get a clearer understanding of Erasmus and his theology.

This volume in the ASD series (VII, 5) contains the second part of Erasmus’ Paraphrases on the apostolic letters of the New Testament. This is the first scholarly edition of these paraphrases, including an introduction, a critical text and annotations. It gives insight in Erasmus’ theological views as he presented them to a more general audience. To the critical Latin text commentaries have been added in which the sources Erasmus possibly used are mentioned. Moreover, explanations on relevant philological, theological and historical questions are given that are necessary for the comprehension of the Latin text.

Dieses Band in der Reihe ASD (VII, 5) enthält der zweite Teil von Erasmus' Paraphrasis zur apostolische Briefe des Neuen Testaments. Diese ist die erste wissenschaftliche Edition dieser Parafrasen, mit Einleitung, kritischem Text und Kommentar. Es erleuchtet Erasmus' theologische Einsichten von ihm präsentiert an einem generellen Publikum. Der bereinigte und kritisch edierte lateinische Text ist mit Kommentar versehen, in dem die von Erasmus möglich herangezogenen Quellen verarbeitet sind. Dazu kommen Erläuterungen zu den relevanten philologischen, theologischen und historischen Fragen, die zum Begriff des gebotenen lateinischen Textes unentbehrlich sind.
In this volume, five of Erasmus’ polemical texts are edited: the Apologia on the translation on John 1, 1: ‘In principio erat sermo’, edited by Jan Bloemendal, the Apologia on the text of 1 Corinthians 15, 51: ‘Omnes quidem resurgemus, sed non omnes immutabimur’, editied by Cecilia Asso, the Apologias against Pierre Cousturier, edited by Jean Céard, the Apologia against the allegations of Spanish monks, edited by Charles Fantazzi, and the Admonitio adversus mendacium et obtrectationem, edited by Johannes Trapman. These texts, most of them related to the Latin translation and Greek texts of his New Testament, shed light on Erasmus’ way of working and the theological issues of the time.
Editor: Jan Bloemendal
In his ‘Project of the New Testament’ Erasmus also wrote a running commentary on all New Testament books, except Revelation, in the form of a paraphrase. In this volume, the Paraphrase on Luke – Latin text with critical apparatus, and English introduction and commentary, is edited. In the paraphrase, Erasmus turns out to be a mature interpreter of the Bible, who advocated a new Christianity, which he called ‘the philosophy of Christ’, and implicitly criticized the clergy of his own age.

Here we reread George W.E. Nickelsburg’s more important articles and encounter afresh some of his books, to criticize them and to attend to his response to the criticism.
This set of Auseinandersetzungen thus carries forward the life of learning and debate that yields a rich harvest of scholarship. It pays tribute to a scholar through acts of engaged, critical scholarship, in which specialists reread articles reproduced in these pages and respond to them, with Nickelsburg then joining issue—a protracted engagement, spanning an entire intellectual career and many of its more important moments.
Nickelsburg’s work not only deserves such rigorous analysis, it also sustains it. On any list of scholars who over the past forty years have defined and cultivated the field of Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity, George Nickelsburg is included at or near the top. Here we present the natural outcome of such a life in the academy: scholars in contention over truth.
For decades a concordance of all the Dead Sea Scrolls has been a major desideratum for scholarship. The Dead Sea Scrolls Concordance covers all the Qumran material as published in the Discoveries in the Judaean Desert series, as well as the major texts from caves 1 and 11, which appeared elsewhere.
This keyword-in-context concordance, prepared by Martin G. Abegg in collaboration with other scholars, contains a new and consistent linguistic analysis of all the words found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. The total number of entries is around 134,000. Every entry includes the keyword with its context, exactly as published in the editions referred to above, with notes on some readings. All keywords have an English translation, and they are listed in alphabetical order rather than by verbal root, which makes the concordance easier to consult for the non-specialist.
This concordance to the non-biblical texts from Qumran is the first of a projected series of three. Future volumes will consist of concordances to the biblical texts from Qumran and to the texts from other sites in the Judean Desert.
