Biblische Notizen (1976-2003) / Biblische Notizen, Neue Folge (2004ff). Founded by Manfred Görg in 1976, the journal is cited by number of Issue (Heft), each of which has its own pagination, not by yearly volume. After M. Görg's retirement a New Series (Neue Folge) began in 2004 with new editorial arrangements, but the Issue numbers continued without a break from Heft (Issue) 121. For that reason the New Series issues will not be indicated as such (i.e. with "N.F.") in the bibliographies of this site.
