Supplements to the SBLHS abbreviations

I'm a copy editor, among other things, and I have three basic tools that I carry with me everywhere: The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 11th edition, and SBL Handbook of Style, 2nd edition.
I suppose I could break down and get electronic versions of the first two—they're available. But, I like being able to page through them, leave them open on my desk, make notes, etc. Besides, Internet isn't always available here. We're just one cable cut away from no access to the outside world. Even the cell phone towers are dependent on a landline. So, hard copy is essential.
But I also depend heavily on the Internet for references. So, in that spirit, I'm putting up this page of supplements to the SBLHS2 list of abbreviations; I've been keeping a file since the new version came out. I'll add to it as I find them. Feel free to assist by adding comments.
By the way, Danny Zacharias has made an electronic supplement available for purchase. His serves a different purpose than mine. Mine is just a list of abbreviations not found in SBLHS2—nothing more.

By the way, here's a couple of other good places to find abbreviations:
Papyrus abbreviations [added 4/18/20]
Oxford Classical Dictionary for Classics and classical authors
CDLI:wiki (Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative) for Akkadian/Sumerian/Hittite
L'Année Philologique for Classics journals

Other handy links:
List of DJD volumes in order of publication: http://orion.mscc.huji.ac.il/resources/djd.shtml [7/24/20]

Link to the RlA online: https://publikationen.badw.de/en/rla/index; updated 4/11/24.

Here's the table of contents for all the copyediting stuff.

UPDATE, August 14, 2017: You might be interested in knowing that IATG3 is now available in paperback for only $57.99! That's still not cheap, but it sure beats the hardback for $189.99! I broke down and purchased it, so you will see a lot less updating here, as I refer to it first.

As I add items, I will put the date added in square brackets after the item in the format [mm/dd/yy] (yes, I use the U.S. system of dating). That way you can easily find new ones.
So, here's the list as it stands today, March 17, 2015 (Last updated February 1, 2024):

And corrections to the list:
BaF (pp. 177, 221) should not be italics (comfirmed)
BBRSup should not be italics; it's a monograph series [added 3/19/15 (unconfirmed)]
BRLA (pp. 180, 225) should be BRLJ (Brill Reference Library of Judaism) [5/11/15 (confirmed)]

The following are compliments of Baker Academic, they are all confirmed by SBL [received 9/23/15, confirmed 1/13/16]
These titles are italic in the list at §8.4.1 but roman in the list at §8.4.2. We believe they should be italic in both places:

This title is roman in the list at §8.4.1 but italic in the list at §8.4.2. We believe it should be roman in both places:

These titles are roman in both lists, but we believe they should be italic:
PIBA Proceedings of the Irish Biblical Association
SPhiloA Studia Philonica Annual
StZ Stimmen der Zeit

There are two that I cannot find and hope you can. If not, I suggest:
1) “KAANT” for “Kleine Arbeiten zum Alten und Neuen Testament” and, more importantly,
2) “StSam” for “Studia Samaritana” series.
The latter is used several times in Benedikt Hensel, “Samaritanische Identität in persisch-hellenistischer Zeit im Spiegel der biblischen Überlieferung und der epigraphischen Befunde,” in Nationale Identität im Alten Testament [ed. W. Zwickel and M. Kõszeghy; Kleine Arbeiten zum Alten und Neuen Testament 12; Waltrop, 2015], 103, 109, 112-13; online: http://www.academia.edu/17090928/Samaritanische_Identit%C3%A4t_in_persisch-hellenistischer_Zeit_im_Spiegel_der_biblischen_%C3%9Cberlieferung_und_der_epigraphischen_Befunde.

Thanks for the input. I found an abbreviation for Studia Samaritana in József Zsengellér, ed., Rewritten Bible after Fifty Years, JSJSup (Leiden: Brill, 2014): SSam. And KAANT seems to be a fairly common way to abbreviate Kleine Arbeiten zum Alten und Neuen Testament, so we'll go with that.

Thanks very much both for "KAANT" confirmation (it isn't in the SBL Handbook) and especially for the Zsengellér reference with "SSam"--I haven't read that one yet!

Dear jps, I think that your helpful list needs "JSHJ Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus," which I can't find in the SBLHS 1st or 2nd eds.

Also, I prefer "StSam" for abbreviating "Studia Samaritana," as seen typed on spine of Menachem Mor and Friedrich V. Reiterer, eds., Samaritans: Past and Present. Current Studies (StSam/SJ 5/53; Berlin: De Gruyter, 2010). Since I've found two sources for the "StSam" usage, I plan to use that until the day it might become a clear error.

jps said...

I've added JSHJ and changed SSam to StSam on the basis of your information.

Hi again! The Handbook doesn't have the Wesleyan Theological Journal, which could abbreviate as WTJ except that is already used for Westminster Theological Journal. Can you please work your magic on this one, too? :-)

jps said...

'Tis a problem, indeed. Of course, being of Wesleyan persuasion myself, I would love to bounce Westminster : ) But, it appears that the preferred abbreviation for the Wesleyan Theological Journal is WesTJ. I've amended my list accordingly.

Thanks for pointing out the lacuna!

Hi James--I'm back. I just found a very good commentary on Amos in the "Mentor Commentaries" series from Scotland. But nobody seems to have an abbreviation for it. One blogger simply uses "Mentor" (http://dwightgingrich.com/recommended-bible-commentaries/intro/abbreviations-used/), but Eisenbrauns seems to use "MenCom" (https://www.eisenbrauns.com/ECOM/_4M90XO594.HTM), which seems preferable to me. But a search on "MenCom" turns up a lot of homosexual propaganda. What do you think, and can you perhaps get a 'ruling' from someone? :-)

jps said...

Hmm...my comment seems to have disappeared : ( Anyway, sorry for the long silence. I came up with exactly the same problem you did. I couldn't find any definitive authority, so let's go with the Eisenbrauns one. I've updated the list.

Dear James, nice to be back and see your good work here! I popped in to say that SBLHS2 errs in misspelling what should properly be the genitive "Judentums" (terminal "s") at the end of the BEATAJ series, which they spell without the terminal "s" incorrectly as "Beiträge zur Erforschung des Alten Testaments und des antiken Judentum" (without "s").
The proper spelling should be: "Beiträge zur Erforschung des Alten Testaments und des antiken Judentums" (with an "s" at the end).
It's fairly irrelevant now since only abbreviations are used, but, well, it's nice to be back for a visit--ha!

jps said...

Thanks for letting me know. I'll pass it on to SBL.

Jessi said...

Thank you! This is so helpful!

One item I've been looking for is "Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament" by Spiros Zodhiates. Logos software calls it the WSNTDICT but I haven't been able to confirm that.

jps said...


Because that is a nonacademic work, you won't find it listed in SBLHS2 or here. You are best going with the Logos abbreviation. That being said, I highly recommend that you use a more accurate and reliable resource, such as the Zondervan dictionary, or "Little Kittel" (yes, it has problems, but is better than Zodhiates), Spiq (available from Hendrickson), or something like that.
