SERIES: Beiträge zur Geschichte der ältesten Auslegung und Spracherklärung des Alten Testamentes ; ; Bd. 1. Ewald (1803-1875) was a “Protestant theologian [and] scholar of the Bible, Israelite history, and Semitic languages... He served as professor at Goettingen and Tuebingen. He was twice dismissed from his post – once in 1837 for protesting against the abolition of the Hanoverian constitution by the king, and again in 1867 for refusing to swear allegiance to the king of Prussia. Ewald viewed historical criticism not as a religious threat but as a means of reconstructing the process by which divine providence had chosen to reveal the true faith to humanity. He believed that the stories of the patriarchs could be used to reconstruct ancient Israelite tribal history, but that the patriarchs themselves were "ideal types. " Ewald was more positive in his historical assessment of Moses. As for the Hebrew prophets, it was through them that God gave the most important truths to humanity. Ewald also did research on Hebrew and Arabic grammar and on the medieval works of Hebrew grammar, which were written in Arabic. He is considered the father of the theory of Hebrew syntax. ” (EJ, 2007) BOUND WITH: Dukes, Leopold.
