Aims and Scope
The Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception is the first-ever comprehensive reference work on the Bible and its reception, which covers biblical and religious topics as well as their reception in an array of religious, cultural and academic disciplines and fields.
Unprecedented in breadth and scope, its content is the result of an interdisciplinary approach. It transcends a purely theological perspective, to include fields ranging from classical, literary and religious studies to archaeology, music, visual arts and film.
In addition, the encyclopedia is interreligious (Judaism, Christianity, Islam and other religions, including new religious movements) from the aspect of both its content and its authors.
Edited by an international team of scholars, EBR’s authors (currently nearly 3,500) work in over 50 countries.
This ensures the international character of the entries and the up-to-date quality of the articles. The renowned editorial board is presided over by Christine Helmer, Thomas Römer, Steven Linn McKenzie, Jens Schröter, Barry Dov Walfish, and Eric Ziolkowski. The print edition of this encyclopedic database was the winner of the 2010 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title award.
