Special Issue Information
Research in the last two decades has consolidated the insight that the formation of the Hebrew Bible has a complex history extending across centuries. Despite the recent differentiation among synchronic approaches to the texts, the historical-critical perspective has proved indispensable for scholarship intending to employ the biblical texts for the study of the theology and literature of Ancient Israel and early Judaism. The Special Issue reviews the current state of research and explores the connections between the history of theology and history of literature in the Hebrew Bible. You are invited to submit both methodological contributions and case studies from all parts of the biblical writings. Additionally, we welcome studies offering insights from neighbouring disciplines, such as Qumran studies and the study of Second Temple Judaism.
We request that, prior to submitting a manuscript, interested authors initially offer a proposed title and an abstract of 400–600 words summarizing their intended contribution. Please send these to the guest editors: (Dr Anja Klein: firstname.lastname@example.org; Prof. Dr Christoph Berner:email@example.com). Abstracts will be reviewed by the guest editors for the purposes of ensuring their proper fit within the scope of the Special Issue. Full manuscripts will undergo double-blind peer-review.
