Prolegomena zur Geschichte Israels

Author: Julius Wellhausen
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter
ISBN: 3110171554
Release Date: 2001
Genre: Religion

The "Prolegomena zur Geschichte Israels" (first published in 1878 under the title Geschichte Israels I, and as of 18832 under the first-named title) by Julius Wellhausen (1844-1918) contains a concise summary and decisive further development of critical scholarship on the Old Testament in the 19th century. Wellhausen's source criticism and "Tendenzkritik" as exercised in the "Prolegomena" became the basis of further scholarly research on the Old Testament. For decades the "Prolegomena" stood in the shadow of research dominated by form criticism, but recent epigraphic and iconographic scholarship has lent Wellhausen's reconstruction of the religion of pre-exilic Israel new relevancy. This book, written fluently and absorbingly, provided with an index of references, is here again made available twenty years after the last reprint.
