Series Editor:
This series is dedicated to the development and promotion of linguistically informed study of the Bible in its original languages. Biblical studies has greatly benefited from modern theoretical and applied linguistics, but stands poised to benefit from further integration of the two fields of study. Most linguistics has studied contemporary languages, and attempts to apply linguistic methods to the study of ancient languages requires systematic re-assessment of their approaches. This series is designed to address such challenges, by providing a venue for linguistically based analysis of the languages of the Bible. As a result, monograph-length studies and collections of essays in the major areas of linguistics, such as syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis and text linguistics, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, comparative linguistics, and the like, will be encouraged, and any theoretical linguistic approach will be considered, both formal and functional. Primary consideration is given to the Greek of the New and Old Testaments and of other relevant ancient authors, but studies in Hebrew, Coptic, and other related languages will be entertained as appropriate.

The series has published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
The story of Tobit builds on various themes derived from myth, legend and folktale. Tobiah’s journey recalls Homer’s Odyssey, the suffering of the righteous brings to mind the legend of Job, and the narrative around a disgraced and then rehabilitated official evokes the story of Ahiqar. The author of Tobit seeks to exploit his readers’ knowledge of these stories in order to convey his message more effectively: he encourages them to trust in divine providence that intervenes on behalf of the faithful.
This volume, based on essays previously published in Italian, charts Tobit’s narrative sources through comparative literary analysis, firmly placing the story in the genre of the didactic and edifying religious novel.
The first scholarly book on Thomas Vaughan (1621–1666) draws from recent studies in Western esotericism to place his famously difficult writings in their proper context. It shows that they develop themes from a distinctively Rosicrucian synthesis of alchemy, magic, and Christian cabala. Vaughan introduced Rosicrucian documents to English readers and placed them in older philosophical contexts during the breakdown of censorship that followed the English Revolution against the old order in politics and religion. Willard’s book will appeal to students of early modern ideas about religion, science, and society as they were seen by an intelligent and eloquent outsider.
The Brill Septuagint Monograph Series seeks to be a premier venue for publication of scholarly work on the Septuagint, as the full corpus of Greek texts that came to be identified with the Old Testament in Greek. The monograph series is a supplement to the well-established Brill Septuagint Commentary Series and therefore has the primary purpose of offering a venue for monographs and edited collections of essays that promote primarily, but not exclusively, the aims of the Brill Septuagint Commentaries. This aim includes providing the opportunity to address issues and questions that may arise from the study of the Septuagint with specific focus upon the Greek text as received, used, and interpreted within early Judaism and Christianity.
Supplements to Aramaic Studies (STAS) serves as a companion to the journal Aramaic Studies by providing a publishing venue for book-length studies in any area related to Aramaic. The editors welcome submissions on any dialect of Aramaic, from Old Aramaic and Achaemenid Aramaic to Neo-Aramaic in all its diversity, from Hatran, Palmyrene and Nabatean through biblical and Qumran Aramaic to the dialects of the Late Roman and Byzantine periods, including Syriac, Mandaic, and the various Jewish dialects. A variety of scholarly approaches are possible: historical, philological, linguistic, exegetical, literary or theological. Critical editions of primary sources are also welcome.
This series is devoted to the study of biblical textual criticism and is designed to complement other SBL series, including The New Testament and the Greek Fathers, Septuagint and Cognate Studies, and Masoretic Studies. Monographs dealing with any aspect of textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament or New Testament are welcome, including investigations of methodology, studies of individual manuscripts, critical texts of a selected book or passage, or examination of more general textual themes (text-critical studies of works closely related to the canonical books may also be considered). Studies that cross the traditional canonical boundaries are especially encouraged. The series may include article collections devoted to a particular topic, reference works, and books suitable for classroom use.
In this book, DeJong explores Deuteronomy’s redefinition of prophecy in Mosaic terms. He traces the history of Deuteronomy’s concept of the prophet like Moses from the seventh century BCE to the first century CE, and demonstrates the ways in which Jewish and Christian texts were influenced by and responded to Deuteronomy’s creation of a Mosaic norm for prophetic claims. This wide-ranging discussion illuminates the development of normative discourses in Judaism and Christianity, and illustrates the far-reaching impact of Deuteronomy’s thought.
A Stoic Ethical Perspective on his Inconsistency
Paul's inconsistency on the Jewish law is a persistent scholarly problem. He can argue vociferously against circumcision but also acknowledge its potential benefit. He expresses pride in his ancestral law and practices, but also describes them in terms of slavery, curses, and rubbish. What are we to make of this? In this volume, Annalisa Phillips Wilson offers a fresh approach. Her comparison of Paul's texts with Stoic ethical reasoning demonstrates that his discourse on Jewish practices reflects Stoic discourse patterns on neutral selections and activities, discourse designed to establish one category of incommensurable worth.
