Chapter Summary

In 1878, Frants Peder William Buhl earned his doctorate from the Faculty of Arts with a thesis in Danish entitled, "Linguistic and historical contributions to Arabic Grammar". Buhl was very well informed about contemporary Old Testament research, and it is not too much to claim that he was the scholar who first introduced modern critical research to Denmark. This chapter presents Buhl's understanding of some of the parts of Isaiah which have played an important role in the history of the Isaiah research. In the introduction to Isaiah 40-66 he rejects all attempts to prove Isaianic authorship for these chapters. He finds, after a thorough investigation, that the relevant historical background for these chapters is the exile, and he cannot believe that Isaiah could have foreseen this period in the way it is referred to in these chapters, not even prophetically "in the spirit".
