    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    The projected thirty-volume Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception (EBR) is intended to serve as a comprehensive guide to the current state of knowledge on the background, origins, and development of the canonical texts of the Bible as they were accepted in Judaism and Christianity. Unprecedented in breadth and scope, this encyclopedia also documents the history of the Bible's interpretation and reception across the centuries, not only in Judaism and Christianity, but also in literature, visual art, music, film, and dance, as well as in Islam and other religious traditions and new religious movements.

    The EBR is also available online.

    Reviews

    "With the publication of the first two volumes of de Gruyter's new Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception (EBR) the year 2009 marks a major milestone in biblical scholarship. [...] The EBR is an indispensable tool for anyone whose work touches the Bible and its reception even remotely. The EBR is a must-have for every library that addresses Biblical studies, Ancient Near Eastern studies, or the cultural and religious history of the western world since late antiquity."
    Journal of Ancient Judaism Universität Wien 2010, Volume 1, Issue 2

    "Daß die neue Enzyklopädie sich als wahre Fundgrube und hilfreiche Materialsammlung erweisen wird, ist bereits jetzt kaum zu bezweifeln."
    J.C.C. in: Zeitschrift für Alttestamentliche Wissenschaft 122/2010
