24 scholars – Jewish, Protestant, Roman Catholic – from North America, Israel, and various European countries, contribute to this rich volume on medieval interpretation and exegesis of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament (5th through 12th centuries). Geographically, they cover most of the world as it was known in these times: from Syria to Spain, from Rome to the Rhine and the Seine.The volume also contains supplements to the previous volume, on Ben Sira and the Wisdom of Solomon. The indexes (names, topics, references to biblical sources and a broad body of literature beyond) are the key to the wealth of information provided. Undoubtedly, this volume will meet the high expectations set by the reviewers of the first volume (I/1) of the series:“Definitive reference work” (Religious Studies Review)“Mine d’information d’une grande richesse” (Revue d’histoire et de philosophie religieuses)“Monumental ouvrage” (Revue d’histoire ecclésiastique)“A veritable treasury” (Catholic Biblical Quarterly)“The foremost account of Jewish and Christian biblical interpretation” (Expository Times)“Onmisbaar handboek voor jeder een die zich serieus met bijbelstudie bezighoudt” (Stem van het boek)“Respekt gebietende Summe wissenschaftsgeschichtlicher Forschung” (Zeitschrift für Altes Testament)Selected chapters / Aus dem Inhalt23.
