Commentaria is a series dedicated to outstanding monographs or edited volumes of essays (topical or from conferences) that address subjects within the general area of the interpretation (exegesis) of the sacred texts of three major religious traditions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Proposals for books written in major European Languages (English, French, German) will be welcome, with a preference for English. The time-period to be covered by series extends from the Late Antiquity through the Late Middle Ages.
The editors envision this series as one embracing a broad range of topics, approaches, and methods. Monographs may address a single tradition or undertake a comparative study of a theme, topic, or hermeneutical strategy in two or three of the traditions, or in several branches or aspects of the same tradition (e.g. Eastern Orthodox and Western Catholic traditions in Christianity, Al Tabari and Al Ghazali in Islam, or the schools of Rashi and Joseph Kimchi in Judaism). Commentaria welcomes studies on sacred myth and narrative; interreligious dialogue; scriptural exegesis; modes of representation; traditions of illumination; methods of manuscript production.
Authors are encouraged to send their proposals or manuscripts to the editors.
