The Septuagint of Isaiah XXIII as Version and Vision
The volume deals with the Septuagint version of Isaiah 23, the Oracle of Tyre. The text of this chapter serves as an illustration of a comprehensive method of analysis which is described in the first part of the book.
After a study of the Masoretic text the Septuagint version is dealt with from several points of view: in comparison with the Masoretic text, as text in its own right, as to its genre ('vision'), and concerning its Hebrew Vorlage. Due attention is paid to the Isaiah texts from Qumran.
The last part of the book contains a chapter on the reception of LXX Isaiah 23 in patristic commentaries and also an appendix of text critical notes on Isaiah 23 according to the principles of the Biblica Hebraica Quinta.
Papers Read at the II Peshiṭta Symposium Held at Leiden 19-21 August 1993
Editors: and
The Peshiṭta as a Translation contains the eleven papers which were read at the Second Peshiṭta Symposium, held in Leiden 19-21 August 1993, as well as two reports on the ongoing work on the Peshiṭta in Stellenbosch and Leiden, and as, an Appendix, an update of the Annotated Bibliography of the Peshiṭta of the Old Testament (MPI 5, 1989).
The papers discuss various aspects of the Peshiṭta as a Translation: its translation technique(s), its relation to Septuagint and Targum, its language, and its use for text-critical purposes. This new addition to the MPI-series will be important for scholars who are engaged in research of the Peshiṭta, and in the history of the Old Testament text, as well as for Syriacists.
A Collection of Old Testament Studies Published on the Occasion of the Centenary of Abraham Kuenen's Death (10 December 1991)
Editors: and
This volume contains the five papers read at a Symposium held in Leiden on 10 December 1991, on the occasion of the centenary of Abraham Kuenen's death, together with four other articles.
The introductory article gives a short biography of Kuenen, one article deals with his method, two concern his approach to the religion of ancient Israel, and the other six discuss the reception of his work on the Pentateuch and later developments in various countries.
Together these articles highlight the significance of this great Old Testament scholar, and at the same time identify issues which continue to confront Old Testament research. Though the wide variety of new approaches to the Old Testament has contributed greatly to our understanding of it, it is clear that historical research has not been rendered obsolete or superfluous by it.
The volume Religion beyond its Private Role in Modern Society aims at contributing to the debate on the distinction between public and private spheres with regard to the role of religion in modern societies. This issue which is inherent to many conceptions regarding social order, modernity, freedom of conscience, and the changing role and function of religion is discussed not only from a social scientific but also from a historical and philosophical point of view. The articles dwell on several aspects of the role of religion in different societies in modern times, and the overall theme is explored from the perspective of various religious traditions and groups, both institutional and non-institutional. It turns out that the distinction made is difficult to maintain.
