About this Item

Hardcover, 8vo, xxiv, 224 pages, 21 cm. In German. SUBJECT (S) : Hebrew poetry -- History and criticism. Includes bibliographical references. Delitzsch (18131890) , was a "German Protestant theologian, Bible and Judaica scholar. Inspired by Julius Fuerst to devote himself to the study of Judaism, he was appointed professor of theology at the university of his native Leipzig in 1844. Later he taught at Rostock, Erlangen, and again in Leipzig. Though Delitzsch was a devoted Christian and the most significant figure of the Lutheran "Mission to the Jews, " believing in the supremacy of the New Testament over the Old, he maintained an extraordinary understanding of, and affection for, Judaism. Well versed in Hebrew and in Semitic languages, as well as in the Talmud and in medieval Jewish literature, Delitzsch was in close touch with the leading Jewish scholars of his time. As a devout Christian, he proselytized among the Jews, wrote several pamphlets for that purpose, and made a new translation of the New Testament into Hebrew (1877, 190112; supposedly with the assistance of A. H. Weiss) " (Breuer in EJ 2007) . Front cover detached. Bookplate of previous owner inside front cover. Otherwise very good condition. (Heb-15-1B). Bookseller Inventory # 26128
