By Richard Simon
Parts One, Two, and Three in One Volume
The first part treating at large concerning the several authors of the Bible. The second containing the history of the chief translations of the Bible, made either by Jews or Christians. The third laying down rules whereby a more exact translation may be made of the Scripture than hitherto has been.
Richard Simon (1638-1712), a French Catholic scholar, was called the "father of biblical criticism." His critical views of the text of the Bible anticipated the views of German rationalists many years later. Simon's work is being reprinted for its historical value rather than in defense of his opinions.
