A critical and exegetical commentary on the book of Daniel by James A Montgomery( Book )

63 editions published between 1913 and 2010 in English and German and held by 919 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arabia and the Bible by James A Montgomery( Book )

25 editions published between 1934 and 2017 in English and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author of this volume, though a comparison of scriptural "ations with all present knowledge of the historical backgrounds of the Bible, shows that the Semitic people and their religion were more closely allied to Arabia than to the cultures of Egypt and Babylon
The Samaritans; the earliest Jewish sect: their history, theology, and literature by James A Montgomery( Book )

32 editions published between 1907 and 2012 in English and held by 773 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The difficult problem of the origin of the Samaritan sect has been here discussed in the light of modern criticism as a preliminary to the subsequent history. Their own chronicles have been carefully explored for historical data, illustrating or adding to the foreign sources which up to within fifty years have been almost the sole means of information. The Jewish, Christian, and Muslim references have been collated, and a digested treatment of the Talmudic references is offered. The Samaritan theology has been treated formally and at some length, with a full apparatus of citations to the literature, especially the liturgy, the theological importance of which has hardly yet been recognized. The chapter on the literature seemed a necessary supplement, although it can give only an outline of the results of the many specialists who have worked in this field. - Preface
The History of Yaballaha III, Nestorian patriarch, and of his vicar, Bar Sauma, Mongol ambassador to the Frankish courts at the end of the thirteenth century by James A Montgomery( )

Aramaic incantation texts from Nippur by James A Montgomery( )

19 editions published between 1913 and 2018 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1888 the University of Pennsylvania sponsored the first ever American archaeological expedition to Mesopotamia, to Nippur, about 160 km south of Baghdad. Among the artefacts discovered were the remains of over 100 inscribed bowls from the early centuries CE. Some contain unidentifiable writing, but most carry spiral inscriptions of exorcism texts in one of three Aramaic dialects and scripts: that of the Babylonian Talmud, a Syriac dialect, and Mandaic. This book, first published in 1913, contains transcriptions and annotated translations of texts from forty of the bowls, together with an inscription found on a human skull, and 41 illustrations. A substantial introduction sets the material in the broader context of Hellenistic magic. The author traces the bowl magic back to ancient Babylonian sorcery, and explores its relations with cuneiform religious texts and Greek magical papyri, emphasising its culturally eclectic character and the diversity of its users

Progress in Drug Research by M. W Anders( )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fourteen years have elapsed since the appearance of the first volume and it is with great pleasure that the Editor is now able to present volume 17. During these fourteen years various fields of drug research have undergone important, partly revolutionary, changes. A number of these have already been dealt with, so that the series PROGRESS IN DRUG RESEARCH contains a comprehensive review of a substantial part of our current knowledge. The Editor is particularly grateful for the opportunity of transmitting to those connected with the devel­ opment of drugs the extensive knowledge of the Authors, who, without exception, are themselves actively engaged in research. Drug research is currently in a state of transformation: reconsideration in the light of the past and reorientation with a view to the future. To a large extent this is due to the tumultuous developments in the last 20 years, developments which are unparalleled in the history of medicine and the consequences of which cannot yet be completely evaluated. Unfortunately, however, the current situation is not devoid of its unpleasant and even tragic aspects, aspects which fall outside the research worker's sphere or influence
