Philos Flaccus
The First Pogrom
Pieter W. van der Horst
This book is the first English commentary on Philos In Flaccum since the publication of Box in 1939. The work contains an introduction in which matters of genre, historical background, the textual evidence etc. are discussed. This is followed by a new English translation of the Greek text. The main part of the book is a detailed philological and historical commentary on Philos text. Since In Flaccum is our only source for the anti-Jewish pogrom in Alexandria in the year 38 CE, it is of the utmost significance for the study of the origins and early history of antisemitism. The book is of interests for scholars of Judaism, Ancient History, Biblical Studies, Classical Literature, and History of Religions.

The Bible in Ancient Christianity


General Editor: D. Jeffrey Bingham

Brian E. Daley, Robin M. Jensen, Christoph Markschies, David G.K. Taylor, Maureen A. Tilley, Robert L. Wilken and Frances M. Young For more information please visit brill.nl/bac The Bible in Ancient Christianity series examines how the Scriptures were interpreted in ancient Christianity, particularly as Scripture functioned in liturgy, in exposition, homilies, in art, in spirituality, and in social issues. The chronological parameters for the study are the first through the fifth centuries. Questions of how Scripture functions will include both, for example, how Augustine interpreted Romans, as well as how Romans was interpreted among various writers. The geographic and chronological breadth of the study means ISSN 1542-1295 that Eastern as well as Western Christian authorities will be examined. Although the focus will be on widely accepted canonical texts (within these two traditions), the series will not restrict itself to only orthodox readings of the texts. Thus, the series might include manuscripts concerning the Gospel of Thomas; and the series might examine how so-called heterodox personalities (e.g., Montanists) used the Bible. Nonetheless the principle aim will be to look at how canonical texts functioned in ancient Christianity.

Augustines Transformation of Early Christian Theophany Interpretation
Kari Kloos
Early Christians interpreted the biblical theophany narratives as manifestations of Christ, yet Augustine challenged and reconfigured this view. Developing over centuries into two major exegetical strands, the transformation of theophany interpretation reveals the critical and adaptive capacity of patristic exegesis.

Biblical Interpretation Series


Editors: Paul Anderson (New Testament) and Ellen van Wolde For more information please visit brill.nl/bins The Biblical Interpretation Series accommodates monographs, collections of essays and works of reference that are concerned with the discussion or application of new methods of interpreting the Bible. Works published in the series ordinarily either give a practical demonstration of how a particular approach may be instructively applied to a Biblical text or texts, or make a productive contribution to the discussion of method. The series thus provides a vehicle for the exercise and development of a whole range of newer techniques of interpretation, including feminist readings, semiotic, poststructuralist, reader-oriented, materialist, deconstructionist and other types of literary readings, ideological, ecological and psychological readings, among many others.

Die Darstellung Der zwlfjhrige Jesus unter den Schriftgelehrten im Wandel der Zeiten
Peter Landesmann
It has been proved that theological essays written in the time of the creation of those images influenced the iconography. The same influence has been traced in historic events of the relevant time. The Christian/Jewish disputations, the persecution of the Talmud, the Puritanism, the Tridentinum, the reflection on the relationship between Jesus and his church, the increasing importance of the attendance of the Sunday mass and many other historical and spiritual sources have been shown as relevant for the concepts of these works of art. Even for small details, as for instance the leaning Jesus at a column, a historic-theological source could be detected.

Flavius Josephus: Translation and Commentary

Martin, College of the Holy Cross, Daniel Schwartz, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Joseph Sievers, Pontifical Biblical Institute, Paul Spilsbury, Canadian Theological Seminary. For more information please visit brill.nl/cfj Flavius Josephus, the first-century Jewish historian, is without a doubt the most important witness to ancient Judaism from the close of the biblical period to the aftermath of the destruction of the temple in 70 CE. His four surviving works - Judean War, Judean Antiqities, Life, and Against Apion - provide the narrative structure for interpreting the other, more fragmentary written sources and physical remains for this period. His descriptions of the Temple, the Judean countryside, Jewish-Roman relations and conflicts, and groups and institutions of ancient Judea have become indispensable for the student of early Judaism, of Classics, and of Christian origins alike. The priestly aristocrat Josephus was born in 37 CE and died around the year 100. After fighting against the Romans in the war of 66-73 and surrendering in the earliest phase of the campaign, he moved to Rome where he began a productive literary career. His four surviving works in thirty Greek volumes are widely excerpted for historical purposes, but still not often read in their literary and historical contexts. This project aims to assist every serious reader of Josephus by providing a new literal translation, along with a commentary suggesting literary and historical connections. This is the first comprehensive literary-historical commentary on the works of Flavius Josephus in English. Scholar Steve Mason, York University, Toronto, edits the scheduled 12 volumes.

Opera exegetica In Genesim


Volume 1 Gregorii Nysseni In Hexaemeron
Hubertus R. Drobner
This is the first critical edition of Gregory of Nyssas In Hexaemeron based on all known manuscripts, introduced by a complete discussion of the textual transmission and accompanied by extensive annotations on the biblical, classical and patristic sources, and indices. The editor Hubertus Drobner has done a fine job in putting this volume together. [...]The actual Greek text and critical apparatus of Gregorys In Hexaemeron are clearly the most useful and most important part of this book. The critical text is what makes this volume so valuable to the patristic scholar or to any scholar concerned with the history of biblical interpretation in the early Christian centuries.[...] This critical edition of Gregory of Nyssas In Hexaemeron will be an indispensable reference for any scholar interested in Gregory of Nyssa. It will also prove valuable for scholars who are interested in patristic exegesis and the history of biblical interpretation more generally speaking and who have competence reading Greek patristic literature. - Jeffrey L.

There has been a good deal of interest of late in this phenomenon, examining both this common heritage, as well as the elements unique to each religion. There has, however, been no systematic attempt to present findings relative to both Jewish and Christian tradition to a broad audience of scholars. It is the aim of this series to do just that. Jewish and Christian Perspectives publishes studies that are relevant to both Christianity and Judaism. The series includes works relating to the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament, the Second Temple period, the Judaeo-Christian polemic (from ancient to modern times), Rabbinical literature relevant to Christianity, Patristics, Medieval Studies and the modern period. Special interest is paid to the interaction ISSN 1388-2074 between the religions throughout the ages. Historical, exegetical, philosophical and theological studies are welcomed as well as studies focusing on sociological and anthropological issues common to both religions including archaeology. The series is published in co-operation with the Bar-Ilan University and the Schechter Institute in Israel, and the Faculty of Catholic Theology of the Tilburg University in the Netherlands. It includes monographs and congress volumes in the English language, and is intended for international distribution on a scholarly level.

It covers not only the whole sweep of history, but also literature, art, architecture, and ritual. Fifty-six pages of stunning color plates complete the volume. Discerning the relations between Judaism and Christianity has yielded many metaphors, mother-daughter, siblings, ways that part or not, and parallel lines.n this volume is no different, presenting those whose methodological sobriety rejects any influence, to those who assert conscious borrowing. - Claudia Setzer, Journal for the Study of Judaism 41, 2010

Linguistic Biblical Studies


Edited by Stanley E. Porter For more information please visit brill.nl/lbs This series, Linguistic Biblical Studies, is dedicated to the development and promotion of linguistically informed study of the Bible in its original languages. Biblical studies has greatly benefited from modern theoretical and applied linguistics, but stands poised to benefit from further integration of the two fields of study. Most linguistics has studied contemporary languages, and attempts to apply linguistic methods to study of ancient languages requires systematic re-assessment of their approaches. This series is designed to address such challenges, by providing a venue for linguistically based analysis of the ISSN 1877-7554 languages of the Bible. As a result, monograph-length studies and collections of essays in the major areas of linguistics, such as syntax, semantics, pragmatics, discourse analysis and text linguistics, corpus linguistics, cognitive linguistics, comparative linguistics, and the like, will be encouraged, and any theoretical linguistic approach will be considered, both formal and functional. Primary consideration is given to the Greek of the New and Old Testaments and of other relevant ancient authors, but studies in Hebrew, Coptic, and other related languages will be entertained as appropriate.

Images of Rebirth
Cognitive Poetics and Transformational Soteriology in the Gospel of Philip and the Exegesis on the Soul
Hugo Lundhaug
This book offers fresh readings of the Gospel of Philip (NHC II.3) and the Exegesis on the Soul (NHC II.6) from new theoretical and historical perspectives. Eschewing the category of Gnosticism and challenging common categorisations, the book analyses the preserved Coptic texts as coherent Christian compositions contemporary with the production and use of the Nag Hammadi Codices. A methodological framework based on Cognitive Poetics is outlined and applied to illuminate how the texts present a soteriology of transformation through religious rituals and practices using complex conceptual and intertextual blends with important polemical and paraenetic functions. The analysis highlights the use of metaphors and allusions in (re-)interpretations of authoritative Scripture, ritual and dogma. Complete Coptic texts and translations are included.

The Paraphrase of Shem (NH VII,1)


Introduction, Translation and Commentary
Michel Roberge
This book presents the first comprehensive interpretation of the Paraphrase of Shem, Codex VII,1 in the Coptic Nag Hammadi Library. The lenghty introduction discusses the literary genre of the treatise, its plan and system, its situation among the Gnostic systems, its provenance and date. The translation sets out the text in paragraphs, with headings and subheadings. A short commentary follows the translation. The analysis of the system shows that the author is working from a model of the universe, whose principles have been drawn from Stoicism and Middle Platonism. While dipping into the springs of the major Sethian and Valentinian systems, the author follows his own way and offers an original system, anticipating in many respects Manichaeism.

The Codex Judas Papers


Proceedings of the International Congress on the Tchacos Codex Held at Rice University, Houston Texas, March 13-16, 2008
Edited by April D. DeConick This book contains the proceedings from the Codex Judas Congress, the first international conference held to discuss the newly-restored Tchacos Codex. Given that the Tchacos Codex is a newly-conserved ancient book of Christian manuscripts which had yet to be discussed collaboratively by a body of scholars, the research conducted and published within this book by the members of the Codex Judas Congress is nothing less than a landmark in Gnostic studies. Scholars address issues of identity and community, portraits of Judas, astrological lore, salvation and praxis, text and intertext, and manuscript matters. Although the contributions show a variety of interpretations of the Tchacos texts, several points of agreement emerge, including the assessment that the Codex belonged to early Christians in conflict with other Christians who belonged to the apostolic or conventional church.

Valentinian Ethics and Paraenetic Discourse


Determining the Social Function of Moral Exhortation in Valentinian Christianity
Philip L. Tite
Offering a fresh assessment of the presence and function of paraenesis within Valentinianism, this book places Valentinian moral exhortation within the context of early Christian moral discourse. Like other Christians, Valentinians were not only interested in ethics, but used moral exhortation to discursively shape social identity.

Timothy Pettipiece

From Judaism to Christianity: Tradition and Transition


A Festschrift for Thomas H. Tobin, S.J., on the Occasion of His Sixty-fifth Birthday
Edited by Patricia Walters As a far reaching tribute to the distinguished career of Thomas H. Tobin, S.J., a team of outstanding biblical scholars has joined to offer essays on the religious milieu of the ancient Mediterranean region. Challenged by Hellenistic and Greco-Roman cultural and political domination, the religious struggles of Jewish and, later, Christian communities sought to maintain tradition as well as mitigate transition. Jewish responses to a Hellenistic world are revealed anew in the Dead Sea Scrolls and the works of Artapanus and Philo. Also, Christian views on the transitory world of the early centuries of the Common Era are brought to light in the New Testament literature, apocryphal texts, and Patristic writings. Professors and students alike will benefit from the depth and breadth of this fresh scholarship.

The Death of Christ in Graeco-Roman Metaphors
Cilliers Breytenbach
How did the first Christians interpret the death of Christ? The answer lies within the earliest Christian documents, primarily within the Pauline letters. Before the users of a modern language could hope to come near an adequate description of what was expressed in these Greek texts of the first Christians, they have to deconstruct layers of later dogmatic interpretation. They need to keep to descriptive terminology reflecting the Greek of the sources and to trace the origin of the metaphoric language early Christians like Paul used. This volume sets out to construct some of the Jewish and Greco-Roman patterns of thought which were initially utilised to express the meaning of the death of Christ.

Corinth in Context
Comparative Studies on Religion and Society
Edited by Steven Friesen, Dan Schowalter, and James Walters This volume is the product of an interdisciplinary conference held at the University of Texas at Austin. Specialists in the study of inscriptions, architecture, sculpture, coins, tombs, pottery, and texts collaborate to produce new portraits of religion and society in the ancient city of Corinth. The studies focus on groups like the early Roman colonists, the Augustales (priests of Augustus), or the Pauline house churches; on specific cults such as those of Asklepios, Demeter, or the Sacred Spring; on media (e.g., coins, or burial inscriptions); or on the monuments and populations of nearby Kenchreai or Isthmia. The result is a deeper understanding of the religious life of Corinth, contextualized within the socially stratified cultures of the Hellenistic and Roman periods.

The Politics of Peace


Ephesians, Dio Chrysostom, and the Confucian Four Books
Te-Li Lau
Although scholarship has noted the thematic importance of peace in Ephesians, few have examined its political character in a sustained manner throughout the entire letter. This book addresses this lacuna, comparing Ephesians with Colossians, Greek political texts, Dio Chrysostoms Orations, and the Confucian Four Books in order to ascertain the rhetorical and political nature of its topos of peace. Through comparison with analogous documents both within and without its cultural milieu, this study shows that Ephesians can be read as a politico-religious letter concerning peace within the church. Its vision of peace contains common political elements (such as moral education, household management, communal stability, a universal humanity, and war) that are subsumed under the controlling rubric of the unity and cosmic summing up of all things in Christ.

The New Isaac


Tradition and Intertextuality in the Gospel of Matthew
Leroy A. Huizenga
Gospel scholarship has long recognized that Matthean Christology is a rich, multifaceted tapestry weaving multifold Old Testment figures together in the person of Jesus. It is somewhat strange, therefore, that scholarship has found little role for the figure of Isaac in the Gospel of Matthew. Employing Umberto Ecos theory of the Model Reader as a theoretical basis to ground the phenomenon of Matthean intertextuality, this work contends that when read rightly as a coherent narrative in its first-century setting, with proper attention to both biblical texts and extrabiblical traditions about Isaac, the Gospel of Matthew evinces a significant Isaac typology in service of presenting Jesus as new temple and decisive sacrifice.

The Ethics of Obscene Speech in Early Christianity and Its Environment


Jeremy F. Hultin
This book aims to contextualize early Christian rhetoric about foul language by asking such questions as: Where was foul language encountered? What were the conventional arguments for avoiding (or for using) obscene words? How would the avoidance of such speech have been interpreted by others? A careful examination of the ancient uses of and discourse about foul language illuminates the moral logic implicit in various Jewish and Christian texts (e.g. Sirach, Colossians, Ephesians, the Didache, and the writings of Clement of Alexandria). Although the Christians of the first two centuries were consistently opposed to foul language, they had a variety of reasons for their moral stance, and they held different views about what role speech should play in forming their identity as a holy people.

New Testament Tools, Studies and Documents


Edited by Bart D. Ehrman and Eldon J. Epp For more information please visit brill.nl/ntts New Testament Tools, Studies, and Documents (NTTSD) combines two series, New Testament Tools and Studies (NTTS) and Studies and Documents (SD). The former was founded by Bruce M. Metzger in 1965 and edited by him until 1993, when Bart D. Ehrman joined him as co-editor. The latter series was founded by Kirsopp and Silva Lake in 1935, edited by them until the death of Kirsopp Lake in 1946, then briefly by Silva Lake and Carsten Heg (1955), followed by Jacob Geerlings (until 1969), by Irving Alan Sparks (until 1993), and finally by Eldon Jay Epp (until 2007). The new ISSN 0077-8842 series will promote the publication of primary sources, reference tools, and critical studies that advance the understanding of the New Testament and other early Christian writings and writers into the fourth century. Emphases of the two predecessor series will be retained, including the textual history and transmission of the New Testament and related literature, relevant manuscripts in various languages, methodologies for research in early Christianity. The series will also publish a broader range of studies pertinent to early Christianity and its writings.

The Pericope Adulterae, the Gospel of John, and the Literacy of Jesus
Chris Keith
This book offers a new interpretation and transmission history of the Pericope Adulterae, arguing that the interpolator placed the story at John 7.53-8.11 in order to highlight the claim that Jesus could write (John 8.6, 8) in light of a careful reading of Johns Gospel.

Pauline Studies
Edited by Stanley Porter
New TesTameNT & early ChrisTiaNiTy

For more information please visit brill.nl/past The name of Paul continues to stand at the heart of New Testament studiesas one of the first and most important interpreters and promulgators of Jesus Christ. Wherever he went as missionary, teacher, and preacher, or wherever his letters went in his stead, he rarely failed to cause a reaction. Paul continues to stand at the centre of theology and controversy, as scholars and laity alike continue to respond to him. This series of volumes of essays by a variety of different scholars is edited by the well-known scholar Stanley Porter. It offers an important contribution to New Testament scholarship in general, and particularly to Pauline scholarship, by uniquely focusing upon major areas of Pauline studies in order to throw new light on many different aspects of the man and his work. The scholars involved bring various interpretative methods to their task, depending upon their own approaches and the nature of the topic itself. The volumes progress logically through several of the issues of continuing importance in Pauline studies. As a result, the series is both broad in scope and focused and particular in approach. Volume 1 on the Pauline Canon discusses primary and basic ideas concerning the extent, nature and

ISSN 1572-4913 content of the Pauline corpus. Volume 2 addresses Paul and his Opponents, examining the letters individually and as a whole to discern these elusive characters who often stand in tension with Paul and his teaching, and who helped to create the conflicts in which Pauls letters and theology came about. Volume 3 is on Paul the Theologian, exploring many notions fundamental to Pauls thought, especially in the light of recent penetrating work that has revised long-held views about Paul and his ideas. Volume 4 discusses Pauls World and explores many of the social, literary and cultural forces at constant play in Pauls environment. Volume 5 focuses on Paul as Jew, Greek and Roman, not only articulating features of the several worlds with which Paul is identified, but, perhaps more importantly, challenging the ease with which such distinctions are often made. Further volumes are in the planning stages, and further contributions are welcome to this series that has already attracted a number of major scholars as participants. Pauline Studies constitutes a basic resource for all those interested in Paul, including New Testament scholars, scholars of early Christianity, and ancient historians.

Pauls World
Edited by Stanley E. Porter This volume is concerned with Pauls world. The major question to ask iswhat is that world of Paul? In determinable ways, Pauls world is everything in the world in which Paul lived and acted, and hence virtually everything that Paul did. In other words, Pauls world can be defined macrocosmically and microcosmically. As the term is defined in the various essays in this volume, Pauls world includes the surrounding environment in which Paul functioned, including its various religious, social, cultural, literary, rhetorical, linguistic and related phenomena. This volume treats some of the most important and germane factors that went into making up the world in which Paul lived, and that consequently defined who he was and became.

The series includes congress volumes and monographs. Publications are usually the result of a reworking of papers presented during a TBN-conference on a particular narrative, e.g. the Balaam story, or a specific theme, for instance: clean and unclean in the Hebrew Bible, or: the ruah adonai and anthropological models of humanity. Having treated the basic texts for this narrative ISSN 1388-3909 or theme, other contributions follow its earliest interpretations and receptions throughout the subsequent phases of ancient Judaism, early Christianity, and if appropriate Islam. Also studies which illuminate the successive inculturations into the various Umwelts - the Ancient Near East, the Graeco-Roman World - are included. Extensions to modern Bible receptions and discussions of hermeneutical questions are welcomed, if they are related explicitly to the study of early receptions of Biblical texts and traditions. Contributions to the series are written by specialists in the relevant literary corpora. The series is intended for scholars and advanced students of theology, linguistics and literature.

Jewish and Christian Interpretations of the First Sibling Rivalry

Brill

February 2011 ISBN 978 90 04 19252 2 Hardback (vi, 566 pp.) Themes in Biblical Narrative, 14

The story of Cain and Abel narrates the primeval events associated with the beginnings of the world and humanity. But the presence of linguistic and grammatical ambiguities coupled with narrative gaps provided translators and interpreters with a number of points of departure for expanding the story. The result is a number of well established and interpretive traditions shared between Jewish and Christian literature. This book focuses on how the interpretive traditions derived from Genesis 4 exerted significant influence on Jewish and Christian authors who knew rewritten versions of the story. The goal is to help readers appreciate these traditions within the broader interpretive context rather than within the narrow confines of the canon.

The Gospel of Peter


Introduction, Critical Edition and Commentary
Paul Foster
Since its discovery in 1886/87 there has been no full-scale English-language treatment of the Gospel of Peter. This book rectifies that gap in scholarship by discussing a range of introductory issues and debates in contemporary scholarship, providing a new critical edition of the text and a comprehensive commentary. New arguments are brought forward for the dependence of the Gospel of Peter upon the synoptic gospels. The theological perspectives of the text are seen as reflecting second-century popular Christian thought. This passion account is viewed as a highly significant window into the way later generations of Christians received and rewrote traditions concerning Jesus.

The Earliest History of the Christian Gathering


Origin, Development and Content of the Christian Gathering in the First to Third Centuries
Valeriy A. Alikin
Recent research has made a strong case for the view that Early Christian communities, sociologically considered, functioned as voluntary religious associations. This is similar to the practice of many other cultic associations in the Greco-Roman world of the first century CE. Building upon this new approach, along with a critical interpretation of all available sources, this book discusses the social and religio-historical background of the weekly gatherings of Christians and presents a fresh reconstruction of how the weekly gathering originated and developed in both form and content. The topics studied here include the origins of the observance of Sunday as the weekly Christian feast-day, the shape and meaning of the weekly gatherings of the Christian communities, and the rise of customs such as preaching, praying, singing, and the reading of texts in these meetings.

Clement of Alexandria on Trial


The Evidence of Heresy from Photius Bibliotheca
Piotr Ashwin-Siejkowski
Clement of Alexandria (c.150215 CE) is one of the most significant theologians of the secondcentury, and his work is still the subject of intense academic debate. This book provides a new perspective on Clements thought, through a critical examination of the work of one of his critics, Photios (c.820893 CE). Photios, the Patriarch of Constantinople, based his critique on Clements (now lost) treatise Hypotyposeis, claiming the work contained eight heresies. The book examines each error listed in the 109th codex of Photios Bibliotheca in depth, using evidence from Clements existing work to consider the likely accuracy of Photios critique. Focusing on these eight heresies offers a unique opportunity to illuminate what in terms of post-Nicene orthodoxy are Clements most problematic opinions, setting them in the context of their original philosophical and theological frame.

The Despoliation of Egypt


in Pre-Rabbinic, Rabbinic and Patristic Traditions
Joel Stevens Allen
This work examines how Jews defended themselves against anti-Jewish slander concerning the biblical despoliation of Egypt. The embarrassment of the episode was later healed through allegory and became a critically important biblical justification for the Christian appropriation of the Greco-Roman cultural heritage.

Biblical Interpretation
A Journal of Contemporary Approaches
Edited by Hugh Pyper, University of Sheffield Book Review Editor: Tat-siong Benny Liew, Chicago Theological Seminary 2011: Volume 19 (in 5 issues) ISSN 0927-2569 / E-ISSN 1568-5152 This innovative and highly acclaimed journal accommodates articles on various aspects of current biblical criticism. Articles published either give a practical demonstration of how a particular approach may be instructively applied to a biblical text or texts, or make a productive contribution to the discussion of method. The journal provides a vehicle for the exercise and development of a whole range of newer techniques of interpretation, including feminist readings, semiotic, poststructuralist, reader-response and other types of literary readings, liberation-theological readings, ecological readings, psychological readings, and post-colonial interpretation, among many others.

Journal of Greek Linguistics


Edited by Gaberell Drachman 2011: Volume 11 (in 2 issues) ISSN 1566-5844 / E-ISSN 1569-9846 The Journal of Greek Linguistics (JGL) is a newly established peerreviewed international journal dedicated to the descriptive and theoretical study of the Greek language from its roots in Ancient Greek down to present-day dialects and varieties, including those spoken in Asia Minor, Cyprus, Tsakonia, and the Greek diaspora. It aims to offer a focused outlet for publication of firstclass research in Greek Linguistics, broadly construed. JGLs goal is not only to reach linguists interested in the Greek language but also to engage the linguistics community and Hellenists more generally. The input to JGL will thus comprise any topic relevant to Greek linguistics, in the broadest sense, but with some preference given to material with wider relevance to specific subfields within linguistics proper. The intention is therefore on the one hand to encourage discussions and research that illuminate different aspects --- theoretical, historical, and descriptive -- of general linguistics using Greek data, and on the other hand to offer innovative solutions to problems and issues specific to the description and analysis of the Greek language. Greek has played a central role in linguistics and the study of language for centuries. JGL will bring the language into a key position in current debate within Linguistics and related fields.
