White begins this historical mystery with a summary of the physical description and contextual importance of the complete Vulgate manuscript known as the Codex Amiatinus. Working from the dedicatory verses of the volume he gathers evidence as he traces the manuscript through the hands of previous scholars concerned with dating this document. He also examines the listing of the biblical books and illustrations within the manuscript, comparing Amiatinus with other authorities, especially Cassiodorus. Even the Venerable Bede is brought into this historical puzzle. When all the evidence is in, White considers it indisputable that the date of the manuscript belongs around the eighth century. An appendix by W. Sanday addresses the Italian origin of the codex and the localization of Italian manuscripts.

Henry Julian White (1859-1934) was a noted Latinist and New Testament scholar. He eventually became Dean of Christ Church College, Oxford University.

Die Hellenisierung des Semitischen Monotheismus

Series: Analecta Gorgiana 179
ISBN: 978-1-60724-272-7
Deissmann was a scholar well known for his work with the Greek of the New Testament. In this little volume he considers the Hellenization of Semitic monotheism. Primarily concerned with the changes after Alexander’s conquest, the book is a brief exploration of Greek religion in the aftermath of conquest. Semitic monotheism was, according to Deissmann, a new concept for the Greek world. Hellenistic outlooks had long been influenced by classical viewpoints. Into this cultural milieu the Judaic concept of monotheism made immediate inroads. This influence is explored primarily in linguistic form, including considerations of the Septuagint. Both Hellenists and Semitic scholars will find material of interest here. Observations made by Deissmann influenced later thought in this field. Stretching across disciplines, this study will interest cultural historians as well. Share the sense of discovery with this useful booklet.
