Et Sapienter Et Eloquenter
Full Product Description
The question, however, which has hardly been studied so far, is to what extent the Greek translation of the Bible consists of stylistic and rhetorical elements that are not present in the Hebrew source text. Did the translators make use of their rhetoric and stylistic skills to give their translations a distinctive ornatus? Can we, according to Augustine, rightly claim that not only the authors of the Biblical texts but also the translators knew how to write et eloquenter et sapienter, i.e. in an eloquent and wise manner? This issue, neglected in current research, is taken up in this collected volume. Seven scholars investigate the stylistic and rhetorical elements present in various books of the Bible (e.g., "Psalms", "Amos", and "Solomons Book of Wisdom") and establish a field of work that deserves to receive more attention in the future. Contributors are Eberhard Bons, Jennifer M. Dines, Katrin Hauspie, Jan Joosten, Thomas J. Kraus, A. Leonas, and K. Usener.
