Initially published in 1885, this collection of essays by members of the University of Oxford represents the finest of late nineteenth century scholarship. The set is long out-of-print and difficult to find even in libraries. Volume One focuses on biblical archaeology and criticism while the succeeding volumes are essays in biblical and patristic criticism. Essays include: The Day of St. Polycarp's Martyrdom by C.H. Turner Texts from Mount Athos by Kirsopp Lake Baptism and Christian Archaeology by C.F. Rogers The 'Galatia' of St. Paul and the 'Galatic Territory' of Acts by William M. Ramsay Acta Pilati by F.C. Conybeare Recent Theories on the Origin and Nature of the Tetragammaton by S.R. Driver The Text of the Codex Rossanensis by William Sanday On the Dialects Spoken in Palestine in the Time of Christ by Adolf Neubauer The Argument of Romans 9-11 by Charles Gore The Text of the Canons of Ancyra by R.B. Rackham
"Jesus Christ entered into the history of our world. Christianity, therefore, has historical basis. The backbone of history is chronology. Whereas history is a systematic account of events in relation to a nation, institution, science, or art; chronology is a science of time. It seeks to establish and arrange the dates of past events in their proper sequence. Thus chronology serves as a necessary framework upon which the events of history must be fitted. In this book (the author) attempts to establish certain fixed dates in our Lord's life." - Dr. Harold W. Hoehner. Dr. Hoehner has gathered a vast amount of data, both from Scripture and extrabiblical sources, to support his conclusions concerning key dates in the life of our Lord, among them: - The Date of Christ's Birth - The Commencement of Christ's Ministry - The Duration of Christ's Ministry - The Year of Christ's Crucifixion He carefully documents his position and compares the date available--including a study of Greek words, Roman law, and Jewish customs and prophecy.
Following the tradition and style of the acclaimed Index Islamicus, the editors have created this new Bibliography of Art and Architecture in the Islamic World. The editors have surveyed and annotated a wide range of books and articles from collected volumes and journals published in all European languages (except Turkish) between 1906 and 2011. This comprehensive bibliography is an indispensable tool for everyone involved in the study of material culture in Muslim societies.
