A biography and intellectual history of the Jewish biblical scholar, Max Leopold Margolis (1866-1932). Born in Lithuania, Margolis immigrated to the United States where, in 1891, he earned his Ph.D. from Columbia. Three aspects of Margolis' subsequent career are highlighted: his work as editor-in-chief of the Jewish Publication Society's Bible translation of 1917; his research in to the Septuagint and other areas of biblical textual criticism; and his thoughts on the relationship between biblical and Jewish studies.
