Review of Charlesworth, James H. (ed.), The Unperceived Continuity of Isaiah. Jewish and Christian Texts in Contexts and Related Studies 28. London: T&T Clark, 2019
This collection of studies going back to a conference held in 2015 in Jerusalem aims to show that there is a clear continuity of the Isaianic tradition beyond the era of the eighth-century prophet. In comparison to other books of the Old Testament, Isaiah has been one of exceptional influence throughout the centuries. The ten essay included here underline this statement from various perspectives, dealing with the reception history of Isaiah in different periods. Below I present a short overview of its content with several remarks appended to each study.
