6. The Hebrew Text: The foregoing study of the versions gives as a result the greater value of the Hebrew and Aramaic, though the errors ass numer‑


ous. For errors and omissions in the text the pseudo‑Ezra is sometimes serviceable (Ezra v. 15). Many of the lacunte in the text are evident, and occasionally the evident completion of the sense may be gathered from the context (Ezra iii. 12‑13). It is quite likely that the lacuna between Ezra iv. 23 and 24 is not to be laid to the charge of the author, but to carelessness or to arbitrariness on the part of copyists. That changes have taken place in the person of the verb, particularly from the first to the third, is one of the matters of which note must be taken in a critical discussion of the text.

II. Composition of the Books: This is understood both by the arrangement of the material and by its nature. The one book Ezra‑Nehemiah is the second half of a large work, of which I and II Chronicles are the first half. The divisions of Ezra‑Nehemiah are Ezra i.‑vi., vii.‑x., Nehemiah i.‑xiii. These three parts are constructed on the

1. Analysis same plan, each narrating the story of the of a return of the Jews under special Books. authority and with grants from the Persian kings under Zerubbabel and Joshua, Ezra and Nehemiah, and telling the weighty consequences for the temple community in the Holy Land. There resulted the completion of the temple, the restoration of the public service, the binding to­gether of the community by prohibition of foreign marriages, the securing of political independence of the neighboring peoples through completion of the wall of the repeopled capital, and adoption by the community of the law‑book of Moses (Ezra vi., x.; Neh. iii. sqq., viii.).

These results are interwoven into the history of the times. The first step was taken under Cyrus and continued under Darius, the second in the seventh year of Artaxerxes, the third in the twen­tieth and thirty‑second year of the same Artaxerxes. The Persian succession was well known to the author, who in Ezra iv. rr7 names successively Cyrus, Darius, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes. During that period fell the decrees which were the legal basis of the Jewish community and the contests the success­ful issue of which consolidated that community and impressed upon it a distinctive character.

Employed. years later under whom the

events of Neh. i.‑xiii. happened.

Nor may it be held that the author dealt with fic­

titious dates and decrees. Such suspicions are ex­

cluded by the quality of the material, which the

writer has brought together and made to serve his

purpose. The books are a mosaic. The author

doubtless obtained the list of the returning exiles

from the Books of the Kings of Israel and Judah.

He also employed the " Memoirs " of Ezra, those of

Nehemiah, and a reputed report of Tabeel and his com­

panions (Ezra iv. 7) directed to Artaxerxes. Here the

Masoretic text is the result of a complete misunder­

standing. The author of it made out of the original

"with the permission of Mithredath "the series" Bish­

lam, Mithredath," producing a triple authorship for

a document which is only referred to and not given,

since the document in Ezra iv. 11‑16 is specifically

stated to be by others (verses 8‑9). It is to be noted also that iv. 12 refers to the building of the city and iv. 24 to the building of the temple, and that if the traditional theory were correct, the author would have confused entirely different events and blended the accounts as though they referred to one and the same thing. Similarly out of the reports of Nehemiah, narrated in the first person, the writer built up a story in which seven successive steps in the progress of the work of re­building the wall appear, which is a reconstruction by the Chronicler of the order of events as they probably lay in the original documents. Into this is woven an account of the introduction of the law­book, explained by the union of efforts by Ezra and Nehemiah for that purpose. This part is probably taken as an excerpt from ,ths memoirs of Ezra.

In defense of the author's stylistic method it must be remembered that he was writing for his contem­poraries, probably using documents stored in the Jewish archives; that he was not concerned with historical matters of detail the interest in which is

8. The great to modems; and that he had Author's a comprehensive view of the whole

pose. work of restoration of the Jewish

commonwealth, which he put for­

ward in the shape of a mosaic the joining of which

is not always close and the parts of which are not

well coordinated. It was his idea to set forth that

as the Samaritans of the time of Zerubbabel

hindered the work commanded by Cyrus, so they

continued their attempts at hindrance in the days

of Artaxerxes. He desired in his notes of time

(Ezra vii. 1; Neh. i. 1, ii. 1, viii.‑xiii.) to indicate

the cooperation of Ezra and Nehemiah in the work.

The question has been raised whether the narrative

as it stands is the result of wilful perversion of the

sources, or of misunderstanding, or whether it

conforms to the facts. Nehemiah reports that to

him had come sad accounts of the ruinous state of

the walls and city of Jerusalem; the apology of

Tabeel narrates that the work of reconstruction

had been prohibited and forcibly prevented through

a denunciation to the Artaxerxes who sent Jews

back to Jerusalem. But who could be so influen­

tial and so secure in bringing about the restoration

of Jerusalem as those who had come with letters

missive from the king directed to the accomplish­

ment of this task of restoration? The general out­

line of history as made out by the author agrees

with the facts as presented by his sources.

His grammatical works enjoyed great acceptance;

Latin tongue and the interpretation of the Latin

writers. It was repeatedly revised and was used

even into the eighteenth century. As theologian,

Faber was a devoted supporter of Luther and his

doctrine; he translated into German Luther's

commentary on Genesis, chaps. i: xxv.; was col­

laborator in the first four " Magdeburg Centuries "

(q.v.); and wrote certain edifying, in part eschato­

logical works. He also issued in 1583 a German edi­

tion of Saxania, by Albert Krantz (q.v.).

Yorkshire, Oct. 25, 1773; d. at Sherburn Hospital, near Durham, Jan. 27, 1854. He studied at Uni­versity College, Oxford (B.A., 1793; M.A., 1796; B.D., 1803), and was fellow from 1793 to 1803, when he became his father's curate at Calverley. In 1805 he received the vicarage of Stockton‑upon‑

Tees, in 1808 the rectory of Redmarshall, and in 1811 that of Long Newton, which he held till 1832,


when he was made master of Sherburn Hospital. In 1830 he was given a prebendal stall in Salisbury Cathedral. His voluminous works, devoted largely to prophecy, belong to the apocalyptic school of Biblical interpretation and are now of little im­portance. To be mentioned are, Home Mosaic (Oxford, 1801), Bampton Lectures delivered in 1801; The Origin of Pagan Idolatry (3 vols., Lon­don, 1816); and The Sacred Calendar of Prophecy (3 vols., 1828).

x. Johannes Faber of Augsburg was born in the

second half of the fifteenth century at Freiburg,

and died c.1530; the place of his death is unknown.

About 1515 he was prior of a Dominican monastery

at Augsburg, and in 1516 was instructor in theology

at Bologna, but was soon appointed court‑preacher

and confessor of the Emperor Maximilian I. At

the recommendation of Erasmus he became court­

preacher to Charles V., and sought to further a

policy of mediation in the Lutheran controversy.

Erasmus seems later to have become hostile to him.

The only writing known to have been composed by

him is a funeral oration over Maximilian (Augs­

burg, 1519). (J. A. WAGFxnsArlrrt.)

Z. Johannes Faber of Leutkirch was born at Leutkirch (40 m. a. of Uhn) in 1478, and died at Baden (12 m. s.a.w. of Vienna) May 21, 1541. He studied theology and canon law at Tobingen and Freiburg, and was successively vicar and rector at Lindau, rector of Leutkirch, and canon and epis­copal official at Basel. In 1518 he was appointed vicar‑general of the diocese of Constance and re­ceived the title of prothonotary from Pope Leo X. The course of events forced him gradually to break with such humanists and Reformers as Erasmus, (Ecolampadius, Zwingh, and Melanchthon, and to change from their friend to their opponent. He disapproved of the preaching of indulgences by Bernhardin Sanson in Switzerland, and was in com­munication with Zwingli (1519‑20) and even with Luther, while his condemnation of Eck was undis­guised. A radical change took place in his attitude, however, and though he had not yet broken with Luther, he was planning polemics against him and Carlstadt in 1519. His attitude was strength­ened by a journey to Rome in the autumn of 1521, when he dedicated to the new pope, Adrian VI., his Opus adversus nova qumdam dogmala Lutheri (Rome, 1522). Faber returned to Germany a firm opponent of the new movement. On Jan. 29, 1523, he attended the disputation of Zurich as a dele­gate of the bishop of Constance, but was unable to prove the doctrines of the mass or the invocation of saints either from the Bible or tradition to the

satisfaction of Zwingli and his adherents. In the

same year he attended the Diet of Nuremberg,

where he seems to have met the Archduke Ferdinand,

and in 1524 he was a delegate of his bishop at

Regensburg, where he and Eck were the chief

representatives of the projected Counterreformation.

At the same time he republished his polemic against

Luther under the title Mdlleus in hceresin Luthe­

ranam (Cologne, 1524), and was invited to the court

of Ferdinand as chaplain, counselor, and confessor.

In September of the same year he took part in the

heresy trial of Kaspar Tauber at Vienna, and was

later employed in various affairs of state, endeavor­

ing in 1525 and the following years to win the Ro­

man Catholic cantons of Switzerland from France

to Austria, and acting as ambassador to Spain and

England in 1527. In 1528 he was consecrated

bishop coadjutor of Wiener‑Neustadt (now St.

Palten), and in the following year became provost

of Ofen. He was active in promoting the Roman

Catholic cause, taking part in the burning of Bal­

thasar Hiibmaier (Mar. 10, 1528), defending the

execution in his anonymous Ursach warum Bal­

thasar Hubmaier verbrannt sei (Dresden, 1528), and

urging the theological faculty of the University of

Vienna to action against Lutheran heresy. As the

court‑chaplain of Ferdinand he attended the Diets

of Speyer and Augsburg. On the death of Johannes

de Revellie in 1531, Faber succeeded him as bishop

of Vienna, and was also administrator of the dio­

cese of Neustadt until 1538. In the midst of his

episcopal duties, rendered doubly difficult by

Protestantism and Turkish invasion, he found

time to establish an institution for impoverished

theological students and to attempt to improve

the university and theological faculty of Vienna.

He was an author of note, his works including, in

addition to those already mentioned, De Moscovi­

tarum religions at juxta mare glaciale religio (Basel,

1526) and De fade et bonis operxbus (Cologne, 1536).

3. Johannes Faber of Heilbronn was born at Heilbronn (26 m. n. of Stuttgart) about 1504, and died at Augsburg after 1557. He was a Dominican of the monastery of Wimpfen and was educated at Cologne at the expense of his city. He was later called to Augsburg as preacher at the cathedral and was a zealous opponent of the Reformation. The most of his writings are polemics against Prot­estantism and include the following: Ricardi Pampolitani Anglo‑Samonis enarratio in Psalmos (Cologne, 1536); Quod fides esse possit sine caritote (Augsburg, 1548); Enchiridion bi7bliorum (1549); Fructus qut&us dignoscuntur hwretici (Ingolatadt, 1551); Testimonium PetrumRomw fuisse (Antwerp, 1553); Der rechte Weg (Dillingen, 1553); Was die evangelische Mess sei. (Augsburg, 1553); and Johe1 in Predigten ausgelegt (1557).
