The Textual History of the Bible Online (THBO) is unique in providing, for the first time, a cross-searchable platform with all available information regarding the textual history, textual character, translation techniques, manuscripts, and the importance of each textual witness for each book of the Hebrew Bible, including its deutero-canonical scriptures.
In addition, it includes articles on the history of research, the editorial histories of the Hebrew Bible, as well as other aspects of text-critical research and its auxiliary fields, such as papyrology, codicology, and linguistics.
The Textual History of the Bible Online is also published in print and will consist of:
Volumes 1A, 1B and 1C: The Hebrew Bible
Volumes 2A and 2B: Deuterocanonical Scriptures
Volumes 3 A, 3B and 3C: A Companion to Textual Criticism
Volume 4: Indices, and Manuscript Catalogues
Please note: All articles will appear online before the print edition. With few exceptions, the content of all entries is final. Some articles will still receive light copy editing.
- Introduction to the Textual History of the Bible
- Notes to the readers / Abbreviations
- Collective Bibliography
In order not to add to the editors’ workload, it has been decided not to take on new versions of articles published in print until completion of volume 4.
Corrections, however, are included in the online edition. In multi-tome volumes, a list of corrections is included in the last volume (e.g. vol. 1C contains corrections to vol. 1A and 1B).
Citing the THB
For citing the THB (printed edition) in another publication, we suggest to include the context of a section (its “path”), e.g.:
For citation from the online edition use "cite this page" below the article or "export citation" in the right column at beginning of article. Here too, you may want to add the context, e.g.:
