Description - Essays and Studies Presented to Stanley Arthur Cook by D. Winton Thomas
This volume of contributions by members of the faculties of Divinity and Oriental Languages at Cambridge was converted from a presentation into a memorial by the death of Professor Cook on 15th June, 1949. Not the least valuable feature in it is the select bibliography of S. A. Cook's work over fifty-three years of unremitting activity. The historical development of modern humane studies should be an essential feature of any learned work; if it is neglected, old discarded views are raised from the dead, and rejection of current views may be based on ignorance of the original discussion. The bibliography is a guide to the period between the first acceptance of Wellhausen's critical ideas in this country and the present, when Old Testament criticism is taking a different direction owing to new knowledge.
