This is a landmark volume on the Song of Solomon featuring the work of Johann Gottfried Heder, an eighteenth century thinker and theologian. Author John D. Baildam summarizes Heder’s thinking and philosophies, including his methods of analyzing both poetry and the Bible. Herder’s work in poetry informed his extensive writing on the Song of Solomon.
