The new indispensable biblical research tool from de Gruyter
New Circumstances in Biblical Studies
Biblical studies have fully participated in the recent interdisciplinary exchanges among the humanistic and social scientific disciplines. Today, aside from the classic historical questions about the conditions and circumstances of the Bible's origins, inquiries into the reception and culture-forming influence of the Bible are drawing considerable attention.
Formation and Reception of the Bible
Responding to these new circumstances, the Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception (EBR) pursues a twofold task. EBR offers a comprehensive and in-depth rendering of the current state of knowledge on the origins and development of the Bible according to its different canonic forms in Judaism and Christianity. At the same time, EBR also documents the history of the Bible's reception in the Christian churches and the Jewish Diaspora; in literature, art, music, and film; in Islam, as well as in other religious traditions and current religious movements, Western and non-Western alike.
Indispensable Compendium of International Research
With this broad program of reception history, EBR moves into new terrain, seeking to do justice to the fact that the biblical texts not only have their own particular genetic background and setting but also have been received and interpreted, and exerted their influence, in countless and diverse religious, theological, and aesthetic settings. EBR will shape scholarship on the Bible and its reception.
EBR is a resource tool for scholars in biblical studies and related fields but also accessible to general readers interested in the Bible. It is edited by an international team of scholars, all experts in their fields. EBR will be published in English, and the articles will appear in print and online.
