Batovici and De Troyer (eds.), Authoritative Texts and Reception History

Authoritative Texts and Reception History: Aspects and Approaches (Biblical Interpretation Series) by Dan Batovici (Editor), Kristin De Troyer (Editor) (Brill, 2017)

Reception history has emerged over the last decades as a rapidly growing domain of research, entertaining a notable methodological diversity. Authoritative Texts and Reception History samples that diversity, offering a collection of essay that discuss various reception-historical issues, from a plurality of perspectives, across several fields: Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Pseudepigrapha and the Dead Sea Scrolls, New Testament, early and late-antique Christianity. While furthering specific discussions in their specific fields, the contributions included here authored by both established and emerging scholars illustrate just how wide the umbrella of reception history can be, and the varied range of topics, concerns and approaches it can accommodate."
This is a volume of papers from the First St Andrews Conference for Biblical and Christian Studies in 2011. My article, "Quotations from Lost Books in the Hebrew Bible: A New Translation and Introduction" is included. A longer version of the article was also published in Old Testament Pseudepigrapha: More Noncanonical Scriptures, volume 1 (ed. Bauckham, Davila, and Panayotov; Eerdmans, 2013), pp. 673-98.
