Heide's 5th edition

The 5th edition of Martin Heide's Der einzig wahre Bibeltext? Erasmus von Rotterdam und die Frage nach dem Urtext (VTR: Hamburg, 2006) has appeared. Martin is probably the most linguistically competent of our bloggers. In this book he treats the origin of the textus receptus and writes extensively on a whole range of textual issues. Further details are available here.


  1. That's excellent! Thanks very much for mentioning it.

  2. Martin, are you considering turning your work in an annual so that it can be used as a stocking filler?
    2004, 3rd edition, 227 pages
    2005, 4th edition, 294 pages
    2006, 5th edition, 347 pages
    At this rate the year 2019 will see the 18th edition, counting a 1000 pages!

  3. Not really ... I plan to pause now for some years.
    But with all you guys writing a lot of thought-provoking stuff every year, it's hard to keep up!
