Most widely held works by Hermann Gunkel
Israel and Babylon : the Babylonian influence on Israelite religion by Hermann Gunkel( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hanson's new translation and edition of Gunkel's classic response to Friedrich Delitzsch's views of the Babel-Bible controversy places in historical context the strong reaction against Delitzsch, headed in part by Gunkel. Hanson's foreword contains a contemporary evaluation of Delitzsch's claims, as well as a solid review of the comparative method used today to investigate Mesopotamian and Israelite connections
Genesis by Hermann Gunkel( Book )

68 editions published between 1901 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gunkel's commentary on Genesis is a classic in the field of Old Testament studies. This translation makes it available in English for the first time. Gunkel's familiarity with the religious and folk literatures of the world especially of the ancient Near East, provides the context into which he sought to situate Israelite religion and literature. Although he employed source- and form-critical methods, he brought a fine literary and cultural sensitivity to bear on the question of the interpretation of the text in its final forms. In fact, many who now criticize late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century scholarship for its atomism and aridity (Gunkel himself, expressed an awareness of these dangers) will be surprised to find Gunkel's literary reading of Genesis and his engagement with the text inferior to none based on modern approaches. Many of the critical issues with which Gunkel grappled in his commentary continue to commend the attention of Genesis scholarship: the nature of patriarchal religion, the interrelationship between documentary sources, oral tradition, and editorial activity, the antiquity of Israel's eschatological hope, and much more

The folktale in the Old Testament by Hermann Gunkel( Book )

44 editions published between 1917 and 2015 in German and English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gunkel's classic work of 1917 is a systematic investigation of the Old Testament in the light of the then emerging principles of folktale scholarship; he makes use, for example, not only of the contributions of the Grimm brothers but is aware of the research into classifications of tale types represented by the ground-breaking work of A. Aarne in 1910 and subsequently

Introduction to Psalms : the genres of the religious lyric of Israel by Hermann Gunkel( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hermann Gunkel's commentary on Psalms (Die Psalmen, HKAT) - by many considered to be his magnum opus - was published in 1926. But he was unable to complete his final work on the Psalms. The severe suffering of his final months of life forced him to hand over his incomplete manuscript, at Christmastime 1931-1932, to his pupil Joachim Begrich. Gunkel died on 11 March 1932. Begrich put the final touches on the organization of Gunkel's last work on Psalms, and it was published in 1933 as Einleitung in die Psalmen: die Gattungen der religiosen Lyrik Israels."--BOOK JACKET

Creation and chaos in the primeval era and the eschaton : a religio-historical study of Genesis 1 and Revelation 12 by Hermann Gunkel( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hermann Gunkel's groundbreaking Schopfung und Chaos, originally published in German in 1895, is here translated in its entirety into English for the first time. Even though available only in German, this work by Gunkel has had a profound influence on modern biblical scholarship. Discovering a number of parallels between the biblical creation accounts and a Babylonian creation account, the Enuma Elish, Gunkel argues that ancient Babylonian traditions shaped the Hebrew people's perceptions both of God's creative activity at the beginning of time and of God's re-creative activity at the end of time. Including illuminating introductory pieces by eminent scholar Peter Machinist and by translator K. William Whitney, Gunkel's Creation and Chaos will appeal to serious students and scholars in the area of biblical studies."--Résumé de l'éditeur
