n Journal of Northwest Semitic Languages - Editing Proverbs : the challenge of the Oxford Hebrew Bible

Volume 32, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0259-0131


The author, who is preparing an eclectic edition of Proverbs for the Oxford Hebrew Bible, discusses the special problems that Proverbs presents. Special issues are the nature of the textual resources (including the problematic LXX-Prov) and the definition of the task (which must aim at a hyparchetype, not an Urtext). The author explains his own concept of editorial practice with the aid of a survey of methodologies in use in Shakespearian text criticism. Appended is a sample chapter of OHB Proverbs.
