The outstanding nineteenth-century biblical scholar and Semitist William Robertson Smith gave three courses of Burnett Lectures on the Religion of the Semites at Aberdeen just over a century ago. The first series, published in 1889 (2nd edn, 1894), has long been a classic work. The second and third series were never published, owing to the author's ill health; however, the manuscript of them still exists in the Cambridge University Library and was recently discovered by John Day, who has produced this edited version of the work to commemorate the centenary of Smith's death.

Review text: "Als Julius Wellhausens 'Prolegomena zur Geschichte Israels' 1878 erschienen, waren sie in der alttestamentlichen Wissenschaft sofort eine Sensation, freilich eine heftig umstrittene. Hier wurden die Schriften des Alten Testaments in eine andere geschichtliche Folge gebracht, als es der biblische Kanon vorgibt. Mehr noch: Wellhausens Rekonstruktion wies eine bedrängende Nähe zu der Frage nach den Wertmaßstäben der "modernen Kultur" auf. Dadurch erregte das Werk weit über das Gebiet der Theologie hinaus Aufsehen. ... Die 'Prolegomena' liegen jetzt wieder in einem handlichen Nachdruck vor. Man muss kein Prophet sein, um ihren Lesern zeitlose Gegenwart zu verheißen."Friedemann Voigt in: Süddeutsche Zeitung, Dezember 2001
