PUBLISHED AT THE OFFICE OF THE AMERICAN BIBLICAL
REPOSITORY, 194 BROADWAY.
An Index to the Biblical Repository has long been a desideratum. Perhaps no periodical publication of our country contains an equal amount of valuable matter, especially for the Biblical student. Many articles of superior worth have been transferred to its pages, from the German; and there is scarcely a subject of interest to the theologian, on which he will not find more or less of discussion in these volumes.
Although we had read the Nos. of the Repository from its commencement, we were surprised, in reviewing them, at the amount and variety of invaluable matter contained in them.
Hence it becomes exceedingly desirable that the subjects and topics treated be readily found by those who wish to consult the pages of the Repository. To this- end, the following Index has been prepared, with great care, and long-continued labor; and we trust it will answer the purpose intended, and meet the wants of scholars.
Every subject will be found under two or more heads; and although on some points we might have descended to more minutiæ, we presume the Index will be found sufficiently topical.
As it was something of an object, to the ministry to obtain the work at a low price, the subjects under each head have been introduced continuously, in the “ Topical Index,” with only a dash between, instead of beginning a new paragraph with each one. For example, under “Woods," only once given, will be found all the articles of which he is the author, in the order in which they appeared, and with the series, volume and page, and separated by a dash.--So, under the word “Will," are found, in succession, in one paragraph, all the different articles treating of that subject, topically subdivided.
Besides the “ Topical Index," we have given an “ Alphabetical Index of Subjects and Authors."
The Repository ought to be in every public library; and even the Index itself would be a valuable acquisition, as most persons could have access to some copy of the work possessed by individuals.
