About the author: Christian Stock (1672-1733) was a celebrated scholar and Orientalist who became professor at Iena in 1717. His most important works are: "Disputationes de poenis Hebrosorum capitalibus," "Clavis Linguae Sanctae Veteris Testamentis," and "Clavis Linguae Sanctae Novi Testamenti." The last two were so popular that they went through several editions, and were later improved and enlarged.
