Beschreibung:

Jerome produced the first Latin translation of the Bible which was made not from Greek but directly from the Hebrew. This book considers the origins of this project through analysis of the "Quaestiones Hebraicae in Genesim", a commentary on the book of Genesis published at about the same time.
The Old Testament Text before Jerome; Jerome and the Old Testament text; the Version "iuxta Hebraeos" and the "Quaestiones Hebraicae in Genesim"; the literary genre of the "Quaestiones"; Jerome and his Greek exegetical sources; Jerome and his Jewish sources; summary and conclusion.
Jerome (c. 345-420) was one of the greatest biblical scholars of antiquity. Among his achievements was his Latin translation of the Bible "according to the Hebrew," or iuxta Hebraeos. In this study, Adam Kamesar considers the origin of this project through an analysis of the Quaestiones Hebraicae in Genesim, a commentary on the book of Genesis published at approximately the same time as the first installments of the translation. Providing a look at the man and the work behind one of the most important Bibles in the history of the West, this study will be of keen interest to classicists, biblical scholars, patristics scholars, theologians, medievalists, and ancient historians.
