With a handsome folding map of ancient Israel, 21.5 x 48.5cm. Tears repaired with archival rag paper. It is placed between pages 162 & 163 in the final pagination, following the alphabetical key to the map and just before Hiller's 5 page commentary on the map.

Five versions in parallel columns. Only one German version of the N.T. Apocrypha. The Jewish version of the Old Testament is by Josef Witzenhausen, rather than Athias--see the British Museum Catalog & the Jewish Encyclopedia article on Athias. Darlow & Moule ##4227, "This edition of the whole Bible embodies four principal German versions, viz. those of Ulenberg (Catholic), Luther, Piscator (Reformed) and Athias-Reitz."

Johann Otto Glüsing, the editor and compiler of the Biblia Pentalpa, was also the editor of Jakob Böhme's works and the founder of the ascetic 'Angelbrothers' society. "Glüsing was a key part of a group of separatists and spiritualists who gathered in Altona (a hotbed of Spinozists, Mennonites, radical Pietists and Jews) in the early years of the eighteenth century. The Biblia Pentapla represented, for Glüsing, an entirely new direction for the German Bible... Because, in Glüsing's words, 'different German translators...have different dialects,' the Biblia Pentapla would provide all Germans with access to all the all the translations... The side-by-side placement of representative biblical texts was to serve, then, both as an ecumenical bridge between readers, giving them a common language of religions, and a means to unify a Bible divide by centuries of confessional strife... On the one hand, the Biblia Pentapla--like the venerable scholarly tradition of the polyglot Bible--used techniques of accumulation to weave a web fine enough to capture God's Word. As such, it was linked with the formal conventions of biblical scholarship as it developed in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (though unlike the Complutensian or Walton's English Polyglot, the Biblia Pentapla was, to my knowledge, the first attempt to put this scholarly practice entirely into the vernacular domain). On the other hand, the Biblia Pentapla offered a passage to God opened by a single translator--Johann Heinrich Reitz--who, with washed hands and baptized by the Holy Spirit, presented humanity the exact essence of His Word. Reitz's translation guaranteed this access through its fidelity to the original manuscripts. It was a formal effort to re-create in their perfection the original manuscripts of the Bible, and more specifically the New Testament, by an obsessive insistence on literal translation. I will call these two different methods scholarly and linguistic objectivism. Both methods were key to the radical Pietist project to replace theology--long monopolized by orthodoxy--with a text whose meaning was perfectly reproduced for the reader. The history of the post-theological Bible and, indeed, the Enlightenment Bible more generally must therefore start here, at the far fringes of the radical religious underground inhabiting the early eighteenth century."

"The year 1703 was a bad one for orthodox guardians of the Luther Bible. 'I can easily imagine that it will not please everyone,' Caspar Triller laconically commented, and indeed his 1703 New Testament translation pleased almost no one... And 1703's second irritant--the New Testament of Johann Heinrich Reitz, featured translator of Glüsing's Biblia Pentapla--fared no better. Orthodox theologians accused the new translator of a swarm of more or less mortal heresies. Indifferentism, naturalism, fanaticism, Socinianism, Arianism, Nestorianism, acephalism, crypto-calvinism: the list went on. The invective was fierce, but the threat was apparently real. For Triller and Reitz represented the nightmare of orthodoxy: the latter once a follower of Pietists Theodor Untereyck and Philip Spener, now a confirmed spiritualist... And if Triller's work fell onto largely deaf ears, Reitz's was received with applause, at least in some circles, and went through at least four editions by 1738, much to the dismay of the Leipzig book commission."--Jonathan Sheehan: The Enlightment Bible: Translation, Scholarship, Culture. pp.62-65.

We are pleased to offer the New Testament volume of the Biblia Pentapla. It also contains the N.T. Apocrypha in just one translation, which is followed by the Reitz's 3 page "Erläuterungen."

Matthaeus Christoph Pfaff(1686-1760) successor to Jager as chancellor at the Univ. of Tübingen. He was pietistic in "both his understanding of theological method and of the purpose of theology... Pfaff was at least intellectually on the side of the developing Pietistic Movement and for that reason helped to make the Stift at Tübingen its theological center."--Stoeffler: Ger. Piet., pp.93-94. This work known as Pfaffischen Bibelwerks, is Luther's translation, prefaces & comments, and with "new prefaces, summaries, extended parallels, comments and spiritual applications, also prayers at each chapter...edited under the direction of Chr. M. Pfaff." We offer the New Testament volumes (vols 7 & 8) of the larger work of 9 vols (index v.9). The New Testament volumes were edited by Joh. Chr. Klemmen.

"This is one of the most useful Latin versions of the Psalms that has appeared in modern times; it is faithfully executed, without being servilely literal. The notes, though brief, are sufficiently explicit, and are designed to explain obscure passages; to elucidate, by a short paraphrase, peculiar expressions that could not be rendered in the text by a single word; to point out the principal various readings worthy of note; to state briefly the arguments for the renderings of particular words, concerning which interpreters are by no means agreed, with references to philological works in which those arguments are more copiously discussed; and to suggest probable meanings to words of doubtful interpretation, which are submitted to the reader's judgment."--Horne: Intro. to Crit. Study Holy Script; Bibliography V., Lond., 1846, p323.

Edward Robinson (1794-1863) philologist, geographer, and professor of Biblical literature. His publication of Biblical Researches in Palestine (1841) "established his reputation as one of the foremost geographers and Biblical scholars of his time. The lapse of three generations has placed him even higher in the history of scholarship, for it is now recognized that his work marks an epoch in the development of historical geography and related fields."--Dict. Amer. Biog. XVI:40.

"The Harmony of Le Clerc, which was the basis of Newcome's work, was published at Amsterdam in 1699, medium folio. That of Newcome was printed at Dublin in 1778, large folio... The principle of arrangement is similar to that of Griesbach in his Synopsis Evangeliorum, especially as republished by Roediger, Halle 1827. The general chronological order of Le Clerc and Newcome was preferred, as being on the whole judicious, and as already familiar to the great body of theologians. The notes of Newcome have also been retained; not because they are distinguished for much of original or independent thought; but rather as being a judicious compilation from the remarks of others.. On similar grounds, his preface and sectional divisions have also been retained."--Robinson's preface, pp iii-iv.
