Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament Online : access until 3rd May 2020

The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament Online is available to access until 3rd May 2020.

Please send any feedback on this database via the online form.

The third edition of Ludwig Koehler and Walter Baumgartner’s Hebrew dictionary ‘The Hebrew and Aramaic Lexicon of the Old Testament’ is widely acclaimed as the most up-to-date dictionary for the Old Testament and related literature in classical Hebrew and Aramaic and is now available online. The study edition has proven to be a valuable resource for scholars and students. Combining scholarly thoroughness with easy accessibility, the dictionary meets the needs of a wide range of users. The enormous advances that have taken place in the field of Semitic linguistics since the days of the older dictionaries of Classical Hebrew are well documented and assessed, as well as the often detailed discussions in modern Bible commentaries of words where the meaning is particularly difficult. Full text search and possibility to find conjugated verb forms in the context of their roots is particularly helpful to the new student. Specialist users will find here a wealth of bibliographical information on Old Testament exegesis.

The dictionary contains the complete vocabulary of the Hebrew Bible, extended with variants from the Oriental and Samaritan textual traditions, the Ben Sira fragments, and the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Features

 

  • Full text search in Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, English, transliterations and Scripture references
  • Conjugated verb forms immediately found in the context of their consonantal roots
  • Easily compare Hebrew and Aramaic lexemes
  • Cross references hypertexted
  • Powerful search features

Gregory of Nyssa Online (Gregorii Nysseni Opera Online and Lexicon Gregorianum Online)

Cambridge University Library now makes available online access to the Gregorii Nysseni Opera and the Lexicon Gregorianum via the Gregory of Nyssa Online resource on the Brill Reference Works platform.   Access Gregory of Nyssa Online via this link on or off campus.

Gregorii Nysseni Opera Online is the ultimate online critical text edition of Gregory of Nyssa’s works based on all available known manuscripts, introduced with a complete discussion of the textual transmission and accompanied by extensive annotations on the biblical, classical and patristic sources, and indices.

Lexicon Gregorianum Online is the most comprehensive Greek-German dictionary of the language used by Gregory of Nyssa. It is the only dictionary available specifically addressing the vocabulary of late Classical Greek. It documents Gregory’s complete vocabulary, taking account of the syntax, meaning and connotations of every occurrence of a key word in his writings. The complete Lexicon Online comprises 10 volumes, totaling more than 13,000 entries.

The University Library ran a successful trial of this resource in February this year.

Trial access: Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon (BBKL)

The University of Cambridge has trial access on campus only to the Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon (BBKL) to April 12, 2018.

The link to the trial is here:

http://www.bautz.de/kirchenlexikon

We regret that we cannot provide off campus access to this resource.

Please send your feedback on the encyclopedia to library@divinity.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you.

The BBKL is the largest ecclesiastical encyclopaedia worldwide, including more than 20.000 entries about deceased personalities of ecclesiastical history – in the area of theology, religion, philosophy, art history and related subjects.

Répertoire des traductions françaises des Pères de l’Église Online

Trial access is now available up to 6 November 2017 to the Répertoire des traductions françaises des Pères de l’Église Online for the University of Cambridge via this link.

The RTF is a unique source of information for the religious literature of Antiquity and the beginning of the Middle Ages. Although some scholarly editions list the French translations (and those in other languages as well), none of them take into account the partial translations. The database offers for the first time a methodical census. Because of its scale, the RTF has no equivalent either in the French-speaking world or in any other linguistic region.

Under the term “Church Fathers” we understand all Christian writers of the first centuries AD – more than 700, including anonymous writings – whose works are preserved in Latin, Greek, Syriac or other languages of the Christian Near East. It is thus the broad definition that has been retained for the present Répertoire des traductions françaises des Pères de l’Église (RTF). The
chronological limit extends to the beginning of the ninth century.
