Supplementation and the Study of the Hebrew Bible (Brown Judaic Studies, 2018)

Supplementation and the Study of the Hebrew Bible, edited by Saul M. Olyan and Jacob L. Wright, is part of the Brown Judaic Studies Monograph Series, and is produced and distributed by the Society of Biblical Literature. This volume includes ten original essays that demonstrate clearly how common, varied, and significant the phenomenon of supplementation is in the Hebrew Bible. Essays examine instances of supplementation that function to aid pronunciation, fill in abbreviations, or clarify ambiguous syntax. They also consider more complex additions to and reworkings of particular lyrical, legal, prophetic, or narrative texts. Scholars also examine supplementation by the addition of an introduction, a conclusion, or an introductory and concluding framework to a particular lyrical, legal, prophetic, or narrative text.
