About the Authors
  • This volume of contributions by members of the faculties of Divinity and Oriental Languages at Cambridge was converted from a presentation into a memorial by the death of Professor Cook on 15th June, 1949. Not the least valuable feature in it is the select bibliography of S. A. Cook's work over fifty-three years of unremitting activity. The historical development of modern humane studies should be an essential feature of any learned work; if it is neglected, old discarded views are raised from the dead, and rejection of current views may be based on ignorance of the original discussion. The bibliography is a guide to the period between the first acceptance of Wellhausen's critical ideas in this country and the present, when Old Testament criticism is taking a different direction owing to new knowledge.
