Abstract

"PSALM CRITICISM BETWEEN 1900 AND 1935" (UGARIT AND PSALM EXEGESIS) BY SIGMUND MOWINCKEL Oslo 1. In his paper "The Psalm of Habakkuk" in the Robinson Jubilee Volume 1) W. F. ALBRIGHT says on p. 7, n. 24: "it will be evident that Psalm criticism now (i.e. after the Ugarit finds) stands on the threshold of a new day, in sharp contrast to the situation between 1900 and 1935". He has expressed the same opinion in somewhat fuller form elsewhere 2). In another place 3) he speaks of the "pre-Ugaritic" period of Psalm exegesis and declares "the sanest study" of Ps. lxviii from that period to be M. BUTTENWIESER'S treatment of this psalm 4). It is against the background of this feeling of having inaugurated a new era that we must understand Prof. ALBRrGHT's verdict in his note on the present writer's book 5) on the Psalms, in BASOR 126 (April 1952), p. 34: "The author is very pessimistic about the re- viewer's insistence on the fundamental importance of Ugaritic literature for all future study of the Psalter (e.g. p. 601 f.)".
