The first series, published in 1889 (2nd edn, 1894), has long been a classic work.

Review text: "Als Julius Wellhausens 'Prolegomena zur Geschichte Israels' 1878 erschienen, waren sie in der alttestamentlichen Wissenschaft sofort eine Sensation, freilich eine heftig umstrittene. Hier wurden die Schriften des Alten Testaments in eine andere geschichtliche Folge gebracht, als es der biblische Kanon vorgibt.

Dadurch erregte das Werk weit über das Gebiet der Theologie hinaus Aufsehen. [...] Die 'Prolegomena' liegen jetzt wieder in einem handlichen Nachdruck vor. Man muss kein Prophet sein, um ihren Lesern zeitlose Gegenwart zu verheien."Friedemann Voigt in: Süddeutsche Zeitung, Dezember 2001
