5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible of Biblical scholarship, 18 Oct 2010
Adam Frankenberg "Kol adam" (Manchester UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia (Hardcover)
This is the standard academic work and really is essential for anyone who is serious about the 'critical/academic' study of the Bible. After short but very useful introduction the text itself is printed in clear Hebrew (It is of course the standard Masortetic text) the really improtance of the BHS is the footnotes which give variant readings in other sourses, so for example in Hebrew manuscripts or in the Valugate/Septuagint. Along the outer margins there are Minor Masortic notes. (This are largely copiests notes) and inform the reader for example how many times a certain word is used. (I became very intresested in Masortic notes). The text of the BHS is largely that of the Leningrad codex (which is the oldest complet text of the Hebrew Bible)
