"As someone who has taught the Hêliand and had to go to unheard of lengths of photocopying to bring together diverse and difficult to find texts, I cannot tell you how genuinely helpful Cathey's work will be. It will be the version for students in North America, and quite probably abroad as well."
G. Ronald Murphy, Georgetown University

"...a useful addition to texts available for budding philologists."
Tom Shippey, The Times Literary Supplement

"As a means of introducing students to this fascinating world and challenging text, Cathey's study should prove to be valuable, and one may hope that its publication will indeed contribute to growth in the interest of English speakers for the Old Saxon world."
John M. Jeep, Speculum


James E. Cathey's Hêliand: Text and Commentary is a simply unique, wonderfully encompassing, and helpful text, and nothing quite like it exists anywhere in the world. The commentary portion of the book consists of an interweaving of interpretation and philological consideration. This work presents the reader with explanatory commentary that encompasses both the scientific and the poetic and treats them both with equal felicity. The volume also contains something that is exceptionally valuable and cannot be found in English: a compact and serviceable grammar of Old Saxon and an appended glossary that defines all of the vocabulary found in this edited version of the Hêliand.

The Savior as a Well-born Warrior 9. Februar 2008
Von Giordano Bruno - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
The Heliand is the modern scholar's name for an anonymous translation of the gospels into the East Saxon language, in approximately 835 AD. An earlier translation into the Gothic language, by Ulfilas, became the gospel focus of the Arian heresy, but the Heliand seems to have been a tool of missionary efforts as Charlemagne solidified his control of the German lands. No complete manuscript of the Heliand exists, but very substantial fragments have been collated from diverse archives.
This is an excellent text of the alliterative epic, with ample and useful commentaries on almost every sentence. The Heliand is worth scrutiny, not only for linguists and etymologists but also for students of early Christian history in the northern lands.

The Saxon Gospel 21. März 2009
Von E. A. Kinzel - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great compilation of seemingly everything worth knowing about the Heliand. Following a scholarly introduction, approximately half of the Heliand is presented in the original Old Saxon. Next is a very lengthy commentary on each Fitt, or song, touching upon a variety of themes, from linguistic considerations, to comparisons with other works of early Germanic literature, such as the Muspilli, Voluspa etc., to an appreciation for how the poet transformed the Gospel story to appeal to those stormy North Europeans, the Saxons. The commentary also includes quotations, at length, from other studies of the Heliand, so you are given an excellent feel for the scholarship surrounding this epic. Following the commentary is a brief grammar (approx. 30 pages) which also includes a description of the development of Old Saxon phonology from Proto-Germanic. Finally there is an Old Saxon-English glossary.

This book is not for the faint-hearted. If you want to know a little about the Heliand, I highly recommend The Saxon Savior by G. Ronald Murphy, S.J. If you want a very in-depth, scholarly exposition of all aspects of the Heliand, then this is the book for you.

the north converted 31. Dezember 2007
Von T.Aa. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Very, very exciting indeed. How the Saxons were christened. A translation of the oldest living proof, that the gospel came to us very early, and it was told in the language and spirit of the old warriors - great to read that Christ was the warlord and the disciples his true henchmen. Not only for the historybuffs but very readable for the not so faint at heart - but then again no christians are.
