A Textual Reconstruction of Chapters 1–7
The first half of the book of Daniel contains world-famous stories like the Writing on the Wall. These stories have mostly been transmitted in Aramaic, not Hebrew, as has the influential apocalypse of Daniel 7. This Aramaic corpus shows clear signs of multiple authorship. Which different textual layers can we tease apart, and what do they tell us about the changing function of the Danielic material during the Second Temple Period? This monograph compares the Masoretic Text of Daniel to ancient manuscripts and translations preserving textual variants. By highlighting tensions in the reconstructed archetype underlying all these texts, it then probes the tales’ prehistory even further, showing how Daniel underwent many transformations to yield the book we know today.

Internationale Zeitschriftenschau für Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete
Editor:
The series ceased publication. Volume 56 (2009-2010) is the last volume in the series.

Formerly known by its subtitle “Internationale Zeitschriftenschau für Bibelwissenschaft und Grenzgebiete”, the International Review of Biblical Studies has served the scholarly community ever since its inception in the early 1950’s. Each annual volume includes approximately 2,000 abstracts and summaries of articles and books that deal with the Bible and related literature, including the Dead Sea Scrolls, Pseudepigrapha, Non-canonical gospels, and ancient Near Eastern writings.

The New History of the Sermon series publishes current scholarship on the theory and practice of preaching. The first six volumes are edited collections focusing on the Christian sermon from the patristic era through the nineteenth century. Starting with Volume 7, the scope has expanded in three ways. First, the inclusion of faith traditions such as Judaism and Islam as well as New Religious Movements (NRMs). Second, the inclusion of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Third, the addition of other forms of scholarship such as monographs and critical editions of primary texts.

The Series Editors, Keith Francis (email) and Robert Ellison (email), welcome proposals from clergy, researchers in homiletics and related disciplines, as well as established and emerging scholars in communication studies, rhetoric, theology, history, sociology, and related fields.
Supplements to the Textual History of the Bible focuses on the textual criticism and textual history of the Hebrew Bible and cognate literatures in their manifold languages and traditions. The series and its topics are of interest to Jewish and Christian scholars and libraries engaged with religious and biblical studies at both private and public institutions.

The series will consist of individual monographs as well as collected volumes. Examples could include studies analyzing individual textual witnesses in their social context and in the reading they provide to a given biblical book but also studies dedicated to broader implications of textual history and the sociology of the text as well as the history of the scholarship.

The series is peer reviewed and will, initially, solicit proposals from contributors to the reference work Textual History of the Bible. However, the series is also open to proposals from any qualified scholars of the text of the Bible. Volumes will be published in the major scholarly languages in the field.
