Item description for The Apocalypse of St. John I-III: The Greek Text with Introduction, Commentary, and Additional Notes by F. J. a. Hort...
Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) was a scholar of the Bible, Patristics and theology who served as Hulsean and Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity at Cambridge. Among his scholarly contributions are the foundational critical edition of the Greek New Testament as well as portions of the magisterial The Ante-Nicene Fathers. This short book is a posthumous edition of Hort's lectures discussing the authorship, dating and introductory chapters of the Book of Revelation. While the 1908 publication represents, as the preface notes, 'scholarship in undress', it does so with skill. Positing an earlier date of authorship than traditionally held and asserting authorial unity with the rest of the Johannine corpus, this compact work is an important example of focused historical criticism. The commentary on the first three chapters of the Apocalypse further underscores the contribution of this notable scholar at the height of his prowess.
Book Description In this short, posthumous volume, first published in 1908, the distinguished Cambridge scholar Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) discusses important issues relating to the dating and authorship of the final book of the New Testament. It remains a compelling example of how historical criticism can illuminate biblical texts.
