Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception (EBR)
The Encyclopedia of the Bible and Its Reception (EBR) pursues a twofold task:
- It comprehensively renders the current state of knowledge on the origins and development of the Bible according to its different canonic forms in Judaism and Christianity.
- It documents the history of the Bible's reception, not only in the Christian churches and the Jewish Diaspora, but also in literature, art, music, and film, as well as Islam and other religious traditions and current religious movements.
The publication is scheduled to comprise thirty volumes in the printed edition, appearing over a projected ten-year period (2009-2018). The parallel online version consists of all content in the printed edition.
