Ingrid Lilly – New Assistant Editor of TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism

Ingrid E. Lilly, Assistant Professor of Hebrew Bible and Religious Studies at Western Kentucky University, has become the new assistant editor of TC: A Journal of Biblical Textual Criticism.




This is very good news, because she is not only a very nice person, but also a scholar of the Hebrew Bible and the chair of the SBL program unit, "Textual Criticism of the Hebrew Bible." There was really a gap to fill here, since the other editors are all working in the area of the New Testament (and papyrology). In this year's volume of the journal there are two published articles in each field. The new appointment is also positive in another sense of equality, i.e., gender equality, in a field which is strongly dominated by men (there are currently twenty men and three women on the editorial board, the editors included).

Ingrid Lilly wrote her dissertation on "Two Books of Ezekiel: Papyrus 967 and the Masoretic Text of Ezekiel as Variant Literary Editions." It will be published in Brill's Vetus Testamentum, Supplements series.

We have mentioned her work previously here and here.

Ah! An OT textual critic! Any chance to balance the scales is a great opportunity!

Congratulations to Ingrid! I have long felt that the textual critics of the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament need to work more closely together, and draw on insights from each others' work. I have tried to do a bit of this in my book Text and Story. May this appointment encourage a closer association among biblical textual critics.
