Shadal and the Unity of the Book of Isaiah

Posted February 11, 2014

At the beginning of the eighteenth century, there were both German and Jewish scholars who began to claim that the second half of the Book of Isaiah was written by a different prophet. Shadal addresses this issue in a fascinating letter in which he argues that this issue is not only about the authorship of these chapter. Rather, to reject the unity of Isaiah is to reject the tenets of Orthodoxy. This view is relevant to the modern debates about the limits of Orthodoxy today.
