Overview

Fenton John Anthony Hort was a distinguished nineteenth-century Irish theologian, commentator, and Bible scholar. Though raised in the Evangelical tradition, he kept his distance from factious movements of Evangelicals and tractarians. Bishop of Exeter Herbert Ryle wrote that “[Hort] aimed only at arriving at truth, not at confirming opinion.” His text-critical edition of The New Testament in the Original Greek, assembled with Brooke Foss Westcott set a new standard for biblical scholarship and became the basis for the New Testament portions of the Revised Version translation of the Bible—the first major English translation attempt since the King James Bible three centuries prior.

Logos’ F. J. A. Hort Collection selects 12 volumes of his most notable work, along with his son, Arthur Fenton Hort’s two-volume Life and Letters of Fenton John Anthony Hort. Among the other texts included are three volumes of F. J. A. Hort’s commentary on the New Testament Greek text—an excellent window into the translation strategy and debates of the nineteenth century and meritorious on their own; a collection of his Hulsean lectures, The Way, The Truth, the Life, from 1871; and The Christian Ecclesia, a series of lectures on Christian community’s earliest days that draws on Hort’s New Testament expertise. These and other texts make a valuable contribution to the libraries of those interested in New Testament studies, Bible translation, and Anglican historical theology.

Logos enhances these volumes with amazing digital functionality, eliminating your research’s legwork. Fully indexed texts enable near-instant search results. Scripture citations appear on mouseover in your preferred English translation. Automatically integrated with the rest of your library, Hort’s texts will resonate with an extensive library of Anglican texts from the period—including work from John Henry Newman, E. B. Pusey, and William Goode—and connect with a wealth of modern reference works. With Logos, the smartest tools and best library are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
