The Book of Tobias

 

 And its historical Narrative

 

 

 

 A Historical-Scientific Study

 

 

 

 

 

 

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

 

 

 

 

The Franciscan Archive

 

 

 

Since the Age of Martin Luther

the Book of Tobias has been severely criticized

by rationalists who deny the historicity

of the narrative contained in it.

 

 

In this study, the author responds to

the objections against the Book,

and defends the historicity of the narrative,

on the basis of recent scholarship

in the fields of Biblical Studies, History and Archeology.

 

The author also presents reasons why the Book of Tobias,

and not the Book of Tobit should be read by

all Christians.

Thirty Principles

 

for

the scientific study

of sacred scripture

 

 

which refute the Wellhausen theory

 

of the 4-Fold Authorship of the Pentateuch

 

 

 

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

 

 

 

 

The Franciscan Archive

 

 

A Methodological Refutation of the Documentary Hypothesis, as that hypothesis is promoted by Julius Wellhausen and his disciples.

 

The author proposes in this short book,
30 principles derived from the sciences of
theology, philosophy, archeology and cultural anthropology,
as well as those of the general scientific method,
which when applied to the question of the authorship
of the first five books of the Bible,

show clearly to what extent the Wellhausen theory
is not in harmony with an authentic scientific methodology,
nor with the Rule of the Faith.

 

In the Appendix the author proposes a New paradigm for the explanation of the formation of the Pentateuch, founded upon the perennial testimony, that Moses is its real, historical author.
