This is a study of the books of Salisbury Cathedral, and their scribes, in the late eleventh and early twelfth centuries. These manuscripts form the largest collection to have survived from any English centre in the period following the Norman Conquest, and they bear witness to the energetic scribal and scholarly activities of a community of intelligent and able men. Teresa Webber traces the interests and activities of the canons of Salisbury Cathedral from the evidence of their books. She reveals to us a lively Anglo-Norman centre of scholarship and religious devotion. This is a scholarly and original study, which combines detailed palaeographic research with an intelligent understanding of medieval cultural and intellectual life. It is a distinguished contribution to medieval studies.

This much-acclaimed work was first published in 1985 in an extremely limited edition of something under 200 copies. The first edition nonetheless sold out rapidly, and the reviewers were virtually universal in their recommendations that a new edition be published at a more accessible price, and thereby satisfy the additional demands on the marketplace. This new edition meets that need. This second edition is a substantially new work. It has been completely revised throughout, in the light both of the author's subsequent research and discoveries and of the reviewers' observations. It contains much additional new matter. The new illustrations reproduce setting copy, in the autograph of Marcus Musurus, of the Address to the Reader in the 1498 Aristophanes

The scribes of ancient Israel are indeed the main figures behind the Hebrew Bible, and this book tells their story for the first time. Drawing comparisons with the scribal practices of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, van der Toorn details the methods, assumptions, and material means that gave rise to biblical texts. Traditionally seen as the copycats of antiquity, the scribes emerge here as the literate elite who held the key to the production and the transmission of texts.

Alan D. Crown provides a guide to the techniques used by the Samaritan scribes in copying manuscripts. He places Samaritan works in a description of their literary history and shows the more important manuscripts of each type of literature. In addition there is a listing of Samaritan scribes and the manuscripts for which they were responsible. Overall the work shows that the Samaritan scribes were innovative but their scribal techniques derived from an ancient pool of scribal habits and ideas and they had what can be described as a masoretic tradition of their own. Variation in writing habits arose in different scribal schools, some of them are indicated. All in all, the work is a codicology of Samaritan manuscripts.

The studies that make up Of Scribes and Sages once again illustrate the fruitful results of tradition-critical investigations. Readers will observe again and again the coherence and convergence in the methods and findings of these studies, despite being developed in diverse contexts and often with very different points of departure. A great deal of progress has been made in the last twenty-five years of research in the field of comparative midrash. New texts and broader, more encompassing methods have invigorated the field and have led to new insights and genuine progress. The studies contained in Of Scribes and Sages have opened up new lines of inquiry that readers will find stimulating and suggestive of further avenues of research.

The Curious History of the "editor" in Biblical Criticism

There is a generally accepted notion in biblical scholarship that the Bible as we know it today is the product of editing from its earliest stages of composition through to its final, definitive and "canonical" textual form. So persistent has been this idea since the rise of critical study in the seventeenth century and so pervasive has it become in all aspects of biblical study that there is virtually no reflection on the validity of this idea" (from the Introduction). Van Seters proceeds to survey the history of the idea of editing, from its origins in the pre-Hellenistic Greek world, through Classical and Medieval times, into the modern era. He discusses and evaluates the implications of the common acceptance of "editing" and "editors/redactors" and concludes that this strand of scholarship has led to serious misdirection of research in modern times.

Each of the 30 essays here delves into a topic that gives us much food for thought: the Bible as interpreted through ancient Near-Eastern creation myths, flood myths, and goddess myths; gender in the Bible; the feminist approach to Jewish law; comparative Jewish and Christian perspectives on the Hebrew Bible; biblical perspectives on ecology; creating a theology of healing; feminine God-talk. The volume concludes with the author's own original prayers in the form of poetic meditations on pregnancy and birthing. This book is unique, not only because it is the only volume in the JPS Scholar of Distinction series written by a woman, but also because Frymer-Kensky's personal and forthright voice resonates so clearly throughout each piece. Scholars and students of Bible, Jewish studies, and women's studies will surely find this to be a one-of-a kind collection.
