Cassuto wrote in many languages and published his articles in a variety of learned periodicals. Previously, many of these writings were very difficult to obtain. Although the majority of essays presented here in English translation were written a long time ago, the passing years have dealt kindly with them—and their value has not dissipated.
The present collection of essays is the first of two volumes comprising articles on the Bible, Ugaritic writings, and other texts. This volume is devoted to purely biblical themes.
In the Logos edition of Biblical and Oriental Studies, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and Passage Guides, Word Studies, and a wealth of other tools, make this important work more available than ever for Hebrew study.
