The Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception is the first-ever and only comprehensive reference work on the Bible and its reception.
Since 2009 and the publication of its initial entries, the encyclopedia has continues to be a groundbreaking reference work and is a must-have for institutions in the humanities, social and cultural sciences, as well theology and religious studies.
The encyclopedia contains the most current state of knowledge on the origins and development of the Bible in the canons within Judaism and Christianity. It documents the history of biblical reception, not only in Christian churches and the Jewish Diaspora, but also in Islam, other non-Western religious traditions and movements.
Unprecedented in breadth and scope, it innovates, however, by recording how biblical texts have been read, interpreted and integrated into thought, science and culture throughout the centuries. This reference is the pioneer which compiles the most recent scientific research on the reception of the Bible in an array of academic disciplines such as classical, literary and religious studies and archaeology as well as in cultural fields like literature, visual arts, music, film and dance. Its content is the result of an interdisciplinary approach which transcends a purely theological or religious perspective.
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 4,000) 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 L. McKenzie, Jens Schröter, Barry Dov Walfish, and Eric J. Ziolkowski.
Feedback on Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception Online from the academic community has been resoundingly positive. The print edition of the encyclopedia was the winner of the 2010 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title award.
