Description
   Concerning the Bibel und Babel of Prof. Friedrich Delitzsch by Friedrich Eduard König. Delitsch had claimed the absolute superiority of "Babylonia" over "Israel" and that the Bible, in and of itself, is devoid of religious and moral value. The storm over that position and Delitsch’s works resulted in many responses, this being one, another Bibel und Babel by Dr. Moritz Margulies, also offered in this auction. The full title is Die Babel-Bibel-Frage und die Wissenschaftliche Methode: Zugleich Kritik von Delitzsch’s IIIter Babel-Bibel-Schrift (The Babel Bible question and the scientific method; and simultaneously a criticism of Delitzsch's IIIrd Babel Bible work). It has the heading, Im Kampf um das Alte Testament (In battle for the Old Testament). Dr. König is identified as Dr. phil. U. theol. Ordentlichem Professor an der Universität Bonn.

Dr. Friedrich Eduard König was a German Protestant theologian; born at Reicheribach, Saxony, Nov. 15, 1846; Ph.D., 1874, Leipsic; D.D., 1888, Erlangen.
