Description: This far-ranging volume, edited by Claire Mathews McGinnis and Patricia K. Tull, offers a survey of the history of Isaiah’s reception over the course of two millennia, from the Septuagint and early versions, continuing through the centuries in Jewish and Christian exegesis, and concluding with the late twentieth century. Each chapter includes an introductory survey of Isaiah’s interpretation within a particular historical context and then pursues a particular facet of Isaiah’s reception by one of Isaiah’s many readers in that time period. An indispensable resource for scholars and students working in the fields of biblical studies, hermeneutics, and the history of interpretation, this volume will also appeal to anyone with an interest in the book of Isaiah and its interpretation.
Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Prophetic Literature, Isaiah, Septuagint, Literature, Methods, Historical Approaches, History, History of Interpretation
