Aramaic Studies: the leading journal for Aramaic language and literature.

The journal brings all aspects of the various forms of Aramaic and their literatures together to help shape the field of Aramaic Studies.

The journal, which has been the main platform for Targum and Peshitta Studies for some time, is now also the main outlet for the study of all Aramaic dialects, including the language and literatures of Old Aramaic, Achaemenid Aramaic, Palmyrene, Nabataean, Qumran Aramaic, Mandaic, Syriac, Rabbinic Aramaic, and Neo-Aramaic.

Aramaic Studies seeks contributions of a linguistic, literary, exegetical or theological nature for any of the dialects and periods involved, from detailed grammatical work to narrative analysis, from short notes to fundamental research. Reviews, seminars, conference proceedings, and bibliographical surveys are also featured. All contributions submitted to Aramaic Studies are subjected to peer review.

While almost every script of the relevant languages can be printed, Aramaic Studies encourages its authors to provide modern translations of quotations in any of these languages for the benefit of a wide readership, including biblical exegetes and historians whose field of expertise is not Aramaic.

The bibliographic section is sustained by the Semitic Institute at Kampen and the Peshitta Institute at Leiden.

Textus

A Journal on Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible

Founded by the Hebrew University Bible Project in 1960, from 2018 onwards Textus will continue on a wider basis with more international exposure. The establishing of an international editorial board consisting of internationally recognized experts in various sub-disciplines of textual criticism, secures the high quality of the studies to be published in this journal. The journal is to be published annually.

The importance of the discipline of textual criticism received an enormous boost from the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls, showing that the study of these ancient documents is absolutely necessary for the exegesis of Biblical literature. Textus covers that area as well as many additional ones, pertaining to all the fields that are traditionally studied by textual critics:

• All the sub-areas relating to the text of the Hebrew Bible in antiquity and the Middle Ages, the Masorah, its vocalization and accents
• The Bible texts found in the Judean Desert as well as manuscript studies on these texts
• Primary translations of the Hebrew Bible, each in its own cultural and linguistic environment
• Secondary translations of the Bible, each in its own cultural environment
• Textual analysis of words, segments or books in Hebrew and translated Scripture
• History of research on text-critical issues
Volume 26 is forthcoming, tentative publication date February 2019.
