"Biblica et Orientalia" 44
1993 pp. XIV-230


The present study seeks to call attention to a literary genre whose existence in the Hebrew Bible, has gone largely unnoticed or at least not fully appreciated. The city lament is a genre well-known fron ancient Mesopotomia. The laments that make up this genre vividly depict and mournfully lament the destruction of some of the most important cities in Mesopotamia and their chief shrines.

Procedimientos iterativos en la Poesia ugaritica y Hebrea

Zurro Eduardo
"Biblica et Orientalia" 43
1987 pp. XVI-396



En la critica del texto biblico ha ejercido profunda influencia un postulado segùn el cual la repeticiòn literal de un término en miembros paralelos contrasta con una regla estilistica de la poesia hebrea y, por conseguiente, denota corrupcion textual. De los procedimientos aquì estudiados se deduce la arbitrariedad de tal supuesto que ha servido de base a infinidad de enmiendas.

Eduardo Zurro Rodriguez en sus publicaciones estudia el texto hebreo de la Biblia a luz de la filologia semitica noroccidental e indaga aspectos estilisticos de la poesia hebrea.


Job in the Light of northwest semitic

E-mail Stampa PDF

Michel Walter l.
"Biblica et Orientalia" 42
1987 pp. XVIII-438



This book ventures to close a gap in recent studies on Job. Since the discoveries of the text at Ugarit (1929) and at Ebla (1974) hundreds of new suggestions have been made for the understanding of Job based on these texts by a number of schlars and especially by M. Dahood. All areas of ancient Hebrew are affected: orthography, lexicography, grammar, syntax and poetic devices.

Walter L. Michel was associate professor of Old testament at the Lutheran school of Theology at Chicago. This book is a thesis that he spent seven weeks at the Pontifical Biblical Institute in 1979.

Creation and the Teaching of the Qur'an

E-mail Stampa PDF

O'Shaughnessy Thomas J.
"Biblica et Orientalia" 40
1985 pp. VI-102



The Qur'an often proposes God's creative activity as a proof of His beneficence and of His power to accomplish the final resurrection of mankind. The way creation is described shows the influence of Jewish biblical and talmudic tradition. The present study tries to determine the Qur'anic teaching on creation as an activity attributed properly to God and said to originate from "nothing". It inquires into the Qur'anic account of man's creation, since the Qur'an like the Bible describes man's origin from seed but also from clay or drust.

Thomas J. O'Shaughnessy received an M.A. from Loyola University of Chicago and a S.T.D. from Gregorian University in Rome. He studied Arabic in Lebanon.

Althann Robert
"Biblica et Orientalia" 38
1983 pp. XVI-380



In the book of Jeremiah the hebrew and greek texts diverge more widely than in any other writing of the Old Testament. The oracles against foreign nations are placed at the end in the Massoretic Text but in the middle by the Septuagint and in a different order. The present work examines chapters four to six in the light of other Northwest semitic literatures , especially Ugaritic.

Robert Althann, 1939, is director of periodicals Elenchus of Biblica.
