This essay takes a text critical approach to the comparison between the Septuagint (LXX) and Massoretic texts of Hosea. Though the Targum and the Peshitta had both been carefully studied, the Septuagint had received much less attention. Professor Patterson addresses the condition of the LXX text and then moves into a discussion of the variations, neatly divided into the categories: Interpretation; Doubtful; and Recensional. His goal is to determine how closely the LXX resembles the Massoretic text or its underlying tradition. It is his determination that the variations that do occur can all be understandably explained, accepting that their must certainly have been varying Hebrew manuscripts at the time of the Septuagint’s production. Itself noting the absence of much focus on the Septuagint texts in the study of the Jewish Scriptures, the reproduction of this essay seems timely as Septuagint studies have seen increased interest in recent times.

Gaylord Hawkins Patterson (1866-1940) was a graduate of Ohio Wesleyan University, Yale and Harvard, and also studied at the Boston University School of Theology. He taught economics and sociology at both Williamette University and Dickinson College. Of interest among his publications is his “The Social Significance of Heaven and Hell in Islam."

The Arabs from Alexander the Great until the Islamic Conquests

Orientalist Perceptions and Contemporary Conflicts
ISBN: 978-1-4632-4285-5
This is not a conventional history book. It is rather a study of the sociology of historical writing about a period that, although quite distant in time (330 B.C. to A.D. 670), still influences political discourse about the Arab world, and especially the relationship between the West and the Middle East. This book focuses on the riddle of the disappearance of the Arabs from history before Islam, their sudden appearance behind the banners of the Prophet, and the powerful and traumatic effect this emergence into world history has had on the relationship between the Arabs and the West.

The Struggle to Define a Nation

Rethinking Religious Nationalism in the Contemporary Islamic World
ISBN: 978-1-4632-0642-0
In the present edited volume, a serious of internationally recognised scholars adopt an inter-disciplinary approach to the study of ‘religious nationalism’ and the ‘nationalization’ of religion, through focusing on case studies and the religious affiliations and denominations of Islam, Christianity and Judaism. The aim of this book is to reconsider the ongoing debate between different communities of the so-called Islamic World regarding the nature of the nation and state, and the role of religion in a nation-state’s institutional ground, both as a viable integrative or segregating factor. It is through focusing on the state dimension, as the subject of collective action or socio- cultural and political representation, that the book proposes to reconsider the relationship between religion, politics and identity in the perspective of ‘religious nationalism’ and the ‘nationalization’ of religion in the contemporary Islamic World.

Culture of Defeat

Submission in Written Sources and the Archaeological Record. Proceedings of a Joint Seminar of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the University of Vienna, October 2017
ISBN: 978-1-4632-3920-6
Culture of Defeat is based on a 2017 conference focusing on the impact on, and responses by, the defeated parties in conflicts in the ancient Near East. Shifting the focus of analysis from the conqueror to the vanquished, the (re-)examination of written sources and the archaeological record sheds new light on the consequences and reactions after often traumatic defeats and allows to gain a more nuanced and complete picture of such events.

Georg Bühler's Contribution to Indology

ISBN: 978-1-4632-4049-3
This book deals with the life and pioneering work of Georg Bühler in the various fields of Indology. It argues that Bühler's interactions with the 19th c. India influenced his approach as a researcher and in turn his methodology which then followed his self-developed path of Ethno-Indology. The work is a result of study for the doctoral degree of the Savitribai Phule Pune University, Pune, India. Along with source materials available in India, the author consulted those in Germany and Austria.
