Condition Report

Very rare first edition. Important interpretation of the prophecies of Hosea, made by the philologist and theologian of Leipzig Christian Gottlieb Khnhnöl, who presents the Hebrew text with translation and commentary in Latin. Lowndes: “Prof. Kuinoel has applied Heyne’s mode of illustrating Virgil to the elucidation of the prophecy of Hosea. The text rarely varies from the Masora. " Over the centuries, biblical commentators have dedicated many studies to the book of Hosea. Part of the attention is due to the complexity of the language with which it was transmitted to us: it was in fact written in a northern dialect unfamiliar to translators of a later period, and it thus reached us in a partial and confused version. The most serious reason for debate among scholars, however, is the singular order given by the Lord to the prophet to marry a prostitute.
