Most widely held works by Fenton John Anthony Hort
The New Testament in the original Greek by Bible. N. T. Greek. Westcott( Book )

285 editions published between 1870 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 2,399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication in 1881 of The New Testament in the Original Greek, by the Cambridge scholars Brooke Foss Westcott (1825-1901) and Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892), marked the culmination of twenty-eight years of work and an innovation in the theory and methods of New Testament textual criticism. This first of two volumes contains a detailed discussion of the theories and methods behind the reconstructed text, sets out the editors' theory of text-types, and justifies their choice to break with the dominant use of the Textus Receptus. It argues for the Neutral Text, represented by the uncials Codex Vaticanus and Codex Sinaiticus, as being the earliest and least corrupt form. Westcott and Hort's claim to reconstruct the 'original text' may seem extravagant today but according to Bruce Metzger theirs was the 'most noteworthy critical edition of the Greek Testament ever produced by British scholarship'
The Christian ecclesia : a course of lectures on the early history and early conceptions of the ecclesia, and four sermons by Fenton John Anthony Hort( Book )

44 editions published between 1897 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 505 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is one of the best-known works of Fenton Hort (1828-1892), Professor of Divinity at Cambridge. Compiled in 1897, it is a posthumous record of a series of lectures delivered by Hort in 1888 and 1889, covering the origins and development of the early Church. Starting with a discussion on the meaning of 'ecclesia', Hort traces church history from the New Testament accounts of the Last Supper and the Resurrection to the problems Christianity faced in the second century. Hort conveys his meaning with absolute clarity, taking a scrupulous, almost scientific approach in his consideration of literary evidence. Four of his sermons are also included, and the book itself stands as a record of the last words spoken in public by Hort. The Christian Ecclesia provides a fascinating account of the beginnings of Christianity and is one of the most significant works by this prolific nineteenth-century theologian
Judaistic Christianity; a course of lectures by Fenton John Anthony Hort( Book )

30 editions published between 1894 and 2010 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In these lectures published posthumously in 1894, the biblical scholar and theologian Fenton John Anthony Hort draws on his work on the early Christian Church and its transition from Judaism in the Apostolic period. Throughout his career, Hort devoted himself to the study of Christian history and to the joint editorship of a critical edition of the New Testament in Greek and, later, modern English. In his last years teaching at Cambridge University, his efforts centred on proving a first-century dating for the New Testament books, and researching the history and development of the church as described in them. The lectures in this volume respond to arguments of Hort's contemporaries, notably F. C. Baur and the Tübingen school, for a second-century dating. To support his case, Hort examines the relationship between Judaistic, Gentile and Pauline Christianity and analyses New Testament accounts of Christ's attitude to the Jewish faith

The Apocalypse of St. John, I-III by Fenton John Anthony Hort( Book )

26 editions published between 1908 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) was a scholar of the Bible, Patristics and theology who served as Hulsean and Lady Margaret's Professor of Divinity at Cambridge. Among his scholarly contributions are the foundational critical edition of the Greek New Testament as well as portions of the magisterial The Ante-Nicene Fathers. This short book is a posthumous edition of Hort's lectures discussing the authorship, dating and introductory chapters of the Book of Revelation. While the 1908 publication represents, as the preface notes, 'scholarship in undress', it does so with skill. Positing an earlier date of authorship than traditionally held and asserting authorial unity with the rest of the Johannine corpus, this compact work is an important example of focused historical criticism. The commentary on the first three chapters of the Apocalypse further underscores the contribution of this notable scholar at the height of his prowess
Prolegomena to St. Paul's Epistles to the Romans and the Ephesians by Fenton John Anthony Hort( Book )

23 editions published between 1893 and 2014 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This posthumous volume, published in 1895, contains two lectures delivered in the 1880s by the biblical scholar F. J. A. Hort, Professor of Divinity at Cambridge. In these lectures, Hort addresses the question of the dating of Romans and Ephesians, their purpose, and their original readership. He examines their context in the relationship of Judaism to Christianity in the Apostolic period and the difference between Gentile, Judaistic and Roman Christianity. By treating the Epistles as historical as well as religious artefacts and analysing their language and grammar as well as content, Hort argues for the authenticity of both texts and therefore for a first-century dating. The dating of the New Testament was a central concern of Hort toward the end of his career, and he argued against F. C. Baur and the Tübingen school, who placed it in the second century. These lectures present evidence to support his argument
The way, the truth, the life : the Hulsean lectures for 1871 by Fenton John Anthony Hort( )

19 editions published between 1893 and 2015 in English and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) gave the Cambridge Hulsean lectures in November and December of 1871. First published posthumously in 1893, with minor revisions, these lectures are built around a sustained meditation on John 14: 5-6. They represent Hort's defence of the continuing relevance of Christianity in an increasingly science-focused world where religion was no longer the sole arbitrator of 'truth'. These lectures are a direct response to the development of Historical Criticism and the aftermath of the publication of Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859). Hort argues that confidence in the 'truth' of Christianity can only lead to a championship of science and other non-theological methods of inquiry for ultimately 'all knowledge ministers to the knowledge of the highest'. Hort's lectures are a key work of Anglican theology addressing the issue, still pressing over a century later, of religion's relationship with science

The Epistle of St. James : the Greek text with introduction, commentary as far as chapter IV, verse 7, and additional notes by Fenton John Anthony Hort( Book )

28 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fenton John Antony Hort (1828?1892) was Professor of Divinity at Cambridge and the editor, with B.F. Westcott, of an influential edition of the Greek New Testament. His detailed commentary on the Greek text of the Epistle (Letter) of St James was left incomplete at his death. When it was published in 1909, the editor wrote 'Each word and phrase and sentence has been examined in the light of the whole available evidence with characteristic freshness, and with a singularly delicate sense both of the meaning of words, and of subtle variations of grammatical structure.' The Introduction situates the Epistle in its New Testament context, and reflects on issues of authorship, reception and content. Hort's scholarly insights remain of interest to modern theologians. His work also bears witness to the strenuous efforts made by late Victorian theologians to create a textual bulwark against the growth of religious scepticism

Cambridge & other sermons by Fenton John Anthony Hort( Book )

10 editions published between 1898 and 2009 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1898, this collection of sermons by the Irish-born Cambridge biblical scholar and theologian F. J. A. Hort distils over thirty years' work as a pastor. Compiled by the author's son six years after Hort's death, this book contains twenty-four sermons, organised to correspond with the Church calendar. Written for school children, Cambridge college chapels, and the congregation of Hort's own parish in Hertfordshire, many of the sermons in this collection were delivered on more than one occasion and have consequently been revised many times. As Hort's son points out, they appear here in their 'ultimate form', perfected over three decades. First preached over a century ago, Hort's lucid prose makes his work easily accessible. Written in deceptively simple language, the care and precision found in Hort's better-known academic work are also evident in his sermons, which are articulated with grace and clarity
Clement of Alexandria, Miscellanies book VII; the Greek text with introduction, translation, notes, dissertations and indices by Clement( Book )

9 editions published between 1902 and 2010 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fenton John Anthony Hort (1828-1892) was a scholar of the Bible, patristics and theology whose contributions to scholarship included an influential critical edition of the Greek New Testament and portions of The Ante-Nicene Fathers. This posthumous publication (1902) on the important Miscellanies of Clement, includes the complete Greek text of Book Seven with English translation and detailed notes. This is preceded by an extensive introduction based on Hort's lectures, discussing Christianity and philosophy in Clement's foundational work, which relates to a Victorian debate concerning the supposed pollution of 'pure' Christianity by 'alien' Greek thought. Hort argued that not only had Hellenism been present from the earliest days of Christianity, but also that the interaction between the two had resulted in a 'de-secularization of philosophy'. He also emphasised Clement's view that the archetypal Christian ought to live 'as much by prayer and love as by knowledge and thought'
