Simonis

Johann Simonis (1698–1768).
Onomasticum veteris Testamenti, sive tractatus philologicus.
Halle, Orphanage press, 1741. (33694/A)

This Old Testament lexicon exemplifies the Pietist interest in the study of Biblical languages and exegesis. A Hebraist and Orientalist who studied at the University of Halle, Simonis later joined the faculty as professor of theology and church history. The frontispiece of this work is notable as one of the earliest maps of Israel printed with Hebrew characters. The map is more a theological construct than an accurate geographical representation.
