Recent German Works, And University Intelligence


Dr. C. H. Cornill: De Psalmi sexagesimi octavi indole atque origine. 8vo. pp. 42. Marburg. 1878.

An inaugural dissertation on receiving the venia docendi (licentiate’s degree). Not at the booksellers’. Very favorably noticed by E. N. in the Leipzig Lit. Centralblatt.

Dr. Joel Müller: Massecheth Sopherim. The Talmudic tract concerning Scribes. An introduction to the study of old Hebrew modes of writing the Masorah and the Old Jewish Liturgy. Edited from the mss. and annotated by Dr. Joel Müller. 1. 8vo. ppt 38, 305. Leipzig: Hinrichs. 1879. 6 Marks.

These two are (1) a short report, connected with Peter through Mark, and containing accounts of both words and deeds of Jesus (Mark), and then (2) a collection of sayings composed by Matthew.

Dr. Eberhard Gothein: Political and Religious Popular Agitations before the Reformation (Doc. d. Gesch., politische u. religiöse Volksbewegungen vor der Reformation). By Dr. Eberhard Gothein. 1. 8vo. pp.124. Breslau: Koebner. 1879. 3 Marks.

The author sets himself a task which we decidedly disapprove. A treatise like this E...
