Edward Pocock (Pococke) (1604-1691) Orientalist, professor of Arabic at Oxford, 1636-40; was in Constantinople to seek for manuscripts, 1637-40... "He was one of the foremost orientalists in his day. His works are numerous and valuable. His Theological Works were first published with a Life by the editor, Leonard Twells (2 vols., London, 1740). They embrace Porta Mosis (a Latin translation of Maimonides' six discourses prefatory to his commentary upon the Mishna, 1655), Commentaries on Hosea (1685), Joel (1691), Micah and Malachi (1677), and a Latin treatise upon ancient weights and measures. The commentaries formed part of Fell's projected commentary upon the entire Old Testament. They are heavy and prolix, but learned. Pocock took a prominent part in Walton's Polyglot, furnished the collations of the Arabic Pentateuch, and was consulted by Walton at every step."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. IX:99. Spurgeon quotes: "Orme says Pocock was 'one of the finest Oriental scholars, and certainly the first Arabic scholar of his age.' His book is a treasury filled with the products of laborious research."--Commenting & Commentaries p190.

Pagination: (1) title, (1) copyright & printer, [3]-10 preface, [11]-429 text, [430]-432 contents. Moses Stuart (1780-1852) American Hebraist & Biblical scholar, professor of sacred literature in Andover Theological Seminary 1810-1848. "His first literary work was a Hebrew grammar, which was circulated among the students in manuscript because it was not possible to print Hebrew in this country at that time; when it was finally printed (1813), he was compelled himself to set up part of the type for lack of compositors equipped for the task; later editions long remained the textbooks for American students. To American he brought the knowledge of what was being done for Biblical scholarship in Germany, and thus founded in America the scientific study of Biblical archeology and linguistics. For his services in this department he has been called `the father of American Biblical literature.'"--New Schaff-Herzog Ency Rel. Knowl., XI:116. In a series of elaborate commentaries he showed how German scholarship had revolutionized the field of Biblical studies. "Because he [Stuart] was so concerned with recovering the original meaning of the Scriptures, he devoted a great deal of his energy to the production of commentaries on various biblical books. Stuart's commentaries demonstrated his grasp of philological and grammatical tools of research. Although his conclusions always favored his conservative position, the commentaries represented a major advance over previous commentaries in the English language..."--Jerry Wayne Brown: The Rise of Biblical Criticism in America 1800-1870, pp99-100. We offer the First Edition of Stuart's Commentary on the Book of Proverbs. (17673)

Euthymios Zigabenos, or Zigadenos, the theologian (fl. ca. 1100) Byzantine theologian. "For a long period Zigabenos was wrongly identified with Euthymios of Akmonia. He was a monk in Constantinople invited by Alexios I (probably ca.1110) to write a refutation of heresies, which he produced under the title of Panopli dogmatike... He also wrote commentaries on the Psalms, Gospels, and St. Paul's epistles."--The Oxford Dict. of Byzantium, III:2227. "A Latin translation of his commentary on the Psalms was published by Philippus Saulus (Verona, 1530)...In his commentary on the Gospels, which is superior to that on the Psalms, Euthymius follows in general the ancient authorities, especially Chrysostom, although he shows some independence. Allegorical and mystical interpretations are occasionally borrowed."--New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, IV:216. We are pleased to offer Zigabenos' Commentary on the Psalms in this early Latin translation.
