BOOK REVIEWS JULIAN APOSTATA, herausgegeben von Richard Klein, Wege der Forschung, Bd. 509 - Darmstadt, Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft,1978, 531 p. Like other volumes in the series Wege der Forschung, this one resurrects many meritorious and sometimes inaccessible publications from past scholarship. House policy dictates that all pieces must appear in German, with the unfortunate result that scholars whose native language is Italian, French, or English must read the writings of their compatriots in transla- tion. There seems to be little point to this exercise in a volume designed for international consumption. It begins to look more and more as if the publishers of the series to which the present work belongs have not really thought through the fundamental principles of the enterprise. Scholars and students who are able to appreciate arguments that make ample use of Greek, Latin, and (in this case) Hebrew sources in the original will cer- tainly be equipped to read the major modern languages of the discipline. It has always seemed odd that the Wissenschaftliche Buchgesellschaft has never recognized that it could provide a far more useful product if it located translators for papers written in less familiar languages and simply left those in English
