Description: The reception of early Jewish/Israelite texts in early Christianity provides valuable insights into the hermeneutics of ancient authors and studies in this regard are vital for an understanding of their theology/ies. By focusing particularly on the reception of the "Psalms" through the hand of the unknown author of "Hebrews", Old Testament and New Testament scholars combine forces in this collection to determine the shifts in interpretation of the "Psalms" that took place during the processes of (re)interpretation within the work of a particular early Christian writer. Over the last 30 years this pioneering series has established an unrivaled reputation for cutting-edge international scholarship in Biblical Studies and has attracted leading authors and editors in the field. The series takes many original and creative approaches to its subjects, including innovative work from historical and theological perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and more recent developments in cultural studies and reception history.
Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Writings, New Testament, Hebrews and Catholic Epistles, Hebrews, Literature, Psalms
