Codex Washingtonianus

An Analysis of the Textual Affiliations of the Freer Gospels Manuscript


This book investigates the biblical text of Codex Washingtonianus, also called the Freer Gospels, Codex W and GA 032. There are numerous distinctive features in this early and important gospel book, including the differing affiliation of its text in separate sections (known as block mixture). The study examines and evaluates the blocks of text in this manuscript through the extensive application of the technique of quantitative analysis, which sheds light on the textual relationship between Codex Washingtonianus and other gospel manuscripts. Paratextual features, orthographic variations, and singular readings are also described and analysed. This book thus functions as an investigation of the phenomenon of block mixture in itself as well as the character of this particular manuscript, confirming many of the findings of previous scholarship and providing new data from the context of modern research.

The God of Thunder and War in Micah, Habakkuk, and Zechariah

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0611-6
This volume explores storm-/warrior-god motif as found in non-biblical ANE texts, followed by an analysis of the language and imagery in several noteworthy theophanic passages in the Hebrew Bible. These characteristics and vocabulary are used in later chapters to identify and analyze similar motifs in the Twelve Prophets, especially focusing on Mic 7:7-20; Habakkuk 3; and Zech 9:9-16 as test cases. By tracing the use of the storm-/warrior-god motif and language associated with it, a detectable shift is apparent in the use of the motif in the HB that corresponds with the development of monotheism within Ancient Israelite religion.

A New Reconstruction of the Text of 2 Corinthians in Pelagius' Commentary on the Pauline Epistles

ISBN: 978-1-4632-0706-9
A new reconstruction of Pelagius's biblical text of 2 Corinthians. It shows how Pelagius's commentary assists us in choosing between variant readings and assessing manuscript reliability. From this new reconstruction, it is now apparent that Pelagius had access to the Vulgate already in the early 5th century.

Perils of Wisdom

The Scriptural Solomon in Jewish Tradition
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4378-4
Perils of Wisdom engages the biblical Solomon narrative that appears in the Book of Kings and its reception by Jewish texts from scriptural sources through the traditional commentaries of the Middle Ages. By systematically following the thread of exegesis through biblical, rabbinic, targumic, and medieval Jewish texts, and by examining their interplay with other ancient, Christian, and Islamic treatments of Solomon, Keiter traces the emergence and ascendance of an apologetic image of Solomon that has colored Jewish perceptions of the biblical king ever since.
