The Authorship and the Titles of the Psalms According to Early Jewish Authorities


Neubauer addresses the related issues of the authorship of the Psalms and the individual psalm titles according to the early Jewish authorities.

A vital source for anyone interested in the enduring question of the authorship of the Psalms, Neubauer’s study focuses on the early Jewish authorities and their answers to this question. The related issue of the titles of the individual psalms, as reflected in the Rabbinic material, also plays into this question. Starting with the question of the musical setting of the worship life of the Israelites, Neubauer undertakes a monumental survey of the early Jewish sources, followed by a sampling of psalms to illustrate the results of his study.

Adolf Neubauer (1831-1907) knew the Rabbinic material from his upbringing. He was hired by the Bodleian Library to catalogue its Hebrew manuscripts, a task at which he excelled. He was appointed to the first readership in Rabbinic Hebrew at 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.
