ABSTRACT

Since M. Noth suggested the theory of Deuteronomistic History in his Joshua commentary, Das Buch Josua (1938), his position has been succeeded, revised, and complemented by Cross' Harvard School which considers there to be two Deuteronomists (Dtr 1 and Dtr 2), and by Smend's Göttingen school, which suggests there are at least three redactors (DtrH, DtrP and DtrN). In addition, some scholars argue that there have even been 'Deuteronomistic' redactors at work in parts of the Tetrateuch, as well as in the Latter Prophets - in Jeremiah to be exact, and in some of the prophetic collection such as the Book of the Twelve. However, many scholars have highlighted the problem of divergent studies in the field of the so-called Deuteronomistic History and have exposed the wide, diverse usage and understanding of what the terms 'Deuteronomic' or 'Deuteronomistic' convey in current scholarly discussion. In so doing, they have warned of the danger of pan-Deuteronomism and have called for some means of control or of better defined criteria pertaining to this issue. The purpose of this study is to survey the recent research trends of the so-called Deuteronomistic History and to offer new direction for the research of this field.
