Die Proömien der antiken griechischen Bibelkommentare
Author: Matthias Skeb
The study examines the prefaces of the Greek biblical commentaries in Late Antiquity. It analyzes their formal position in the traditions of commenting and the theological interests of the Christian commentators. Special attention is paid both to re-examining the widespread opinion that these prefaces are dependent on the 'schemata isagogica' of the pagan schools of philosophy, and to the presentation of the theological identity of biblical commentators.
The three main chapters analyze the traditions of non-Christian proems, the commentaries of Origen and those of the exponents of Alexandrian and Antiochene exegesis.
The book provides interesting new insights into the formal aspects, motivation, relevance and hermeneutics of the commentaries as well as into the cultural transfer on which they are based.
A Cross-searchable Database and Bibliography of Journal Articles
The English language abstracts published in the Index to the Study of Religions are drawn from a wide range of journals in various languages and reflect an array of complementary disciplines. The number of entries will continue to grow each year. Index to the Study of Religions is the online version of the Brill journal Science of Religion. Articles are classified into the following three large sections: method and theory, religions in context by area, and textual and conceptual traditions. The list of journals consulted is reviewed regularly and suggestions for improvement are welcomed. The Index to the Study of Religions does not seek to appraise or criticise the contents of any articles. Nor does it endorse any of the religious standpoints or agendas referred to in the articles indexed and abstracted. In all cases the individual authors are responsible for their own opinions and any reference to these opinions should take account of the complete article in the original source. The main objective of the Index to the Study of Religions is to facilitate the work and international collaboration of scholars in the academic study of religions and related fields.

This is a sequel to the immensely useful Nag Hammadi Bibliography 1948-1969, which was the first volume to appear in the Nag Hammadi Studies series. The volume provides a complete integration of Supplements I-XXIV to the Bibliography as published in Novum Testamentum 1971-1997, with additions and corrections. In total the update contains over 6092 entries.
Nag Hammadi and Gnostic studies continue to be of critical importance for the study of ancient religions in the Graeco-Roman world and for the study of the world of early Christianity, and the present bibliography provides an indispensable reference tool for work in these fields.
Brill’s Nag Hammadi Bibliography Online (NHBO) is a cross-searchable database of books, articles and reviews, which contribute to the study of Gnosticism and early Christianity. The main objective of the NHBO is facilitating the work and international collaboration of all scholars working in this field.

The NHBO succeeds and builds upon the comprehensive but now outdated three-volume Nag Hammadi Bibliography by the late D.M. Scholer. In addition to the data collated by Scholer, the new NHBO includes bibliographic data from 2013 onwards, as well as useful abstracts of every single entry, keywords, and classification data.

Features and Benefits
- Contains about 13,000 entries covering almost all books, journal articles and book articles in various languages on the Nag Hammadi Library
- Two installments per year (about 400 new entries).
- Includes the three Nag Hammadi Bibliography volumes by the late David Scholer
- Instant and cross-searchable
- Includes abstracts and keywords, which will also be added later to Scholer entries from before 2007.

In future, NHBO will also include links to search engines and online publications, and will provide the capability to export texts. The NHBO will be updated annually in order to provide Nag Hammadi scholars with an accurate and up-to-date online resource. In addition, missing bibliographic data for the years 2007 to 2012 will be added to the NHBO from December 2016 onwards. Once this task is complete, the NHBO team will also add the abstracts to the publications included in Scholer’s Bibliography.

The NHBO has three main priorities:
1. Compiling the complete data on all academic publications on Nag Hammadi from 2013 onwards.
2. Filling the hiatus between 2007 and 2012, between Scholer’s Bibliography and the NHBO.
3. Completing Scholer’s data with the addition of abstracts and keywords to the existing materials.

NHBO’s timeline:
1st phase to cover data and publications from 2007 to 2020:
December 2016: publication for the years 2012 to 2015
December 2017: publication for the years 2011 and 2016
December 2018: publication for the years 2010 and 2017
December 2019: publication for the years 2009 and 2018
December 2020: publication for the years 2008 and 2019
December 2021: publication for the years 2007 and 2020
2nd phase (2022 to 2026) to cover data and publications from 2021 to 2025 and to add abstracts, complementary information, and links to the data from Scholer’s Bibliography.
