Item description for The Odes of Solomon (Hermeneia: a Critical and Historical Commentary on the Bible) by Michael Lattke, Harold W. Attridge & Marianne Ehrhardt...

The Odes of Solomon small enigmatic texts discovered more than 200 years ago have now compiled a small library discussing them. His commentary is an attempt to provide a critical and engaging commentary on the textual data and all relevant topics that are concerned with the textual information. Grammatical, historical, literary, and many other topics are discussed in reference to the Odes in clear insightful manner with scholarly rigor and with a view of describing the entirety of the book. The Hermeneia is designed for the serious student of the Bible. It will make full use of ancient Semitic and classical languages; at the same time English translations of all comparative materials-Greek, Latin, Canaanite, or Akkadian-will be supplied alongside the citation of the source in its original language. Insofar as possible, the aim is to provide the student or scholar with a full critical discussion of each problem of interpretation and the primary data upon which the discussion is based.

Publishers Description
Here, the author provides a translation and discussion of the textual transmission of the 'Odes', along with judicious commentary on the place of the 'Odes' in the development of Gnosticism, Logos theology, and early Christian worship.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Odes of Solomon (Hermeneia: a Critical and Historical Commentary on the Bible)?

A masterpiece of scholarship  Dec 21, 2009
It was my privilege to study with Professor Lattke as an undergraduate and even then, many years ago, he was working on this book. At the time it was in German so I'm thrilled to finally read the English version in the beautifully presented Hermeneia series. Definately a work for serious students and scholars, this is a publication of extreme rigour and detail. However for those with a layperson's curiosity, one can read each of the Odes clearly translated with an accompanying introduction, before encountering the full textual-critical analysis. A must for those with an historical-critical interest in the early Christian period and early Gnostic thought.
