AUSLOOS, Hans. Literary criticism and textual criticism in Judg 6:1-14 in light of 4QJudga. Old testam. essays [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.2, pp.358-376. ISSN 2312-3621.

Until recently, textual criticism and historical-critical scholarship have been considered as two separate disciplines. However, due to important developments within the field of textual criticism itself -not least thanks to the discovery of new manuscript findings - it has become evident that both fields of research are intrinsically interwoven. The present contribution - written in honour of Prof. Dr. Herrie van Rooy - explores this relationship on the basis of the passage of the call narrative of Gideon in Judg 6. It will demonstrate how the pericope of the unknown prophet (Judg 6:7-10), and more particularly its absence in 4QJudga, can serve as a good example to clarify the close intertwinement between historically oriented literary criticism and textual criticism.1
