Reviews - What do customers think about Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia?
THIS IS THE ONE YOU WANT! Jul 12, 2008
All American publishers do a lousy job on this critical Hebrew Bible. Do not buy their versions. You must endure the long boat ride all the way from Germany, but you will find that your efforts are well rewarded.
First of all let me just say that the German Bible House (Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft) ROCKS! Oh my gosh! Every critical punctuation, jot and tittle are in their place. The editors from this publisher care about their work and the accuracy of it.
If you're a student of Hebrew, this is the work that you want. Forget the others.
BHS paperback edition May 7, 2007
A clearly printed, well-bound version of the BHS. The main drawback, in exchange for the compact size compared with the full-size, hardback edition, is that the Masorah Parva notes in the margins and the footnotes are so small that they are very difficult to read. A magnifying glass is required to ease the eye strain. While the price for this edition is attractive, I wish I had purchased the full-size, hardback edition.
Big enough to read Feb 22, 2007
While it will add to your biceps more than likely, this edition is large enough to read. I bought the 1997 green cover BHS for the price, but it was so small that I came back and bought this one so I could see the holems and dageshes. Worth the money to see what you're doing.
BHS LARGE PRINT ED. Jan 5, 2007
BOOK AS ADVERTISED, SOME SCATTERED MARKINGS OF NO CONSEQUENCE. LARGE PRINT EDITION MUCH EASIER TO READ.
the standard critical text of the Hebrew Bible Jul 2, 2006
In the field of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament studies, 'BHS' carries a well-deserved resonance, much like 'Mercedes' or 'Beamer' does among enthusiasts of quality cars that are within the mainstream.
The Deutsche Bibelgesellschaft's BIBLIA HEBRAICA STUTTGARTENSIA has no rivals except its own periodic updates. Like Mercedes and BMW, each edition represents improvements made to a venerable tradition, in this case one that associates its name with the renowned German scholars Alt, Eissfeldt, Kittel and their successors.
Following introductions in the major European languages and indices to the sigla that one uses to follow the textual information presented in the two 'apparati' (running footnote references) on each page of the text, one launches without comment into the biblical text itself. The gruntwork of editing and annotating each biblical book has been placed into the hands of particular scholars. As a result, the reluctance or daring with which the editors present evidence gleaned from Hebrew manuscripts and the early versions varies, but always within the general parameters established by the Biblica Hebraica tradition.
BHS is a 'diplomatic' edition. This means that a given text is presented as received. The apparati then provide the scholar with data from which he or she chooses to opt for a different 'reading' at any point along the way. The text in this case is variously known, but commonly called 'Leningradensis', a superb 11th-century manuscript in the Massoretic tradition. It is the earliest complete exemplar of the Massoretic biblical/textual tradition, thanks to the wear and scarring suffered by its slightly older cousin, the Aleppo Codex.
BHS is not a visual 'copy' of Leningradensis - one of this is available - but rather a machine-type presentation of that manuscript's contents. The quality of workmanship is awe-inspiring. Though I have worn out my share of BHS's, this is due to intensive use and occasional mistreatment in a backpack or overstuffed briefcase. I can scarcely imagined a more durable book.
The Gesellschaft will eventually produce the successor to BHS, to be titled BIBLIA HEBRAICA QUINTA. It will provide its reader with even more textual data, much of it gleaned from the Dead Sea manuscripts.
Quinta will earn its welcome. However, it is only with deep nostalgia that I will cede pride of place to the Quinta after having journeyed so long and contentedly with the incomparable BHS.
