A memorial volume for a scholar such as Thorkild Jacobsen, who published so many original works on so many different topics, is an ambitious and risky undertaking. At a time when anniversary and memorial volumes threaten to overwhelm us, the quality suffers and one would hardly want to end up with a volume unworthy of the recipient. In this case, however, all such fears can be readily dissipated, for the papers collected in this volume are uniformly of the highest order . . . This volume will be consulted for years to come.
