Philology regards Hebrew as one of many Semitic languages. However, Hebrew writing as we encounter it in the Bible displays a number of characteristics that induce us to concede a special position to Hebrew script. It contains, for example, an abundance of musical notations which led to Hebrew being called 'the most musical language in the world'. A thorough study of Hebrew shows that in its writing and grammar it symbolically represents the Pythagorean idea of the harmony of the spheres, of the singing of the stars. The author presents the cosmic notations which the ancients connected with vowels and letters and which were embodied in Hebrew script. This book will not only make a contribution to philology but also place into a new context the Hebrew script and language, the language of the Bible, the most widely read book in the world.
