Please note, in the article in the German version (de:Julius Wellhausen) he died 10 days before he died in the English version. What is his real day of death?
Wellhausen died on 1918 January 7. Someone has correctly harmonized the English and German Wikipedias. Richard David Ramsey 03:57, 28 January 2008 (UTC)
Inaccurate generalization of Wellhausen's approach
The phrase "uncompromising scientific attitude" as applied to Wellhausen's studies in this article is questionable. Recent scholarship has better characterized his approach as a "deductive" methodology. The use of "scientific" is inexact and inappropriate, since it has not been demonstrated that Wellhausen used the scientific method, as defined in the relevant Wikipedia article, in his writing. To be accurate and in accord with scholarly studies of his work, the phrase should be changed to "uncompromising deductive method." Citations should be given that define more specifically Wellhausen's approach, and further citations showing how he used this approach to reconstruct Israel's history.
Evaluations of Wellhausen's methods in recent scholarship
You has removed the this section from this Article. You gave POV as the reason. It is a substantial part of the article. I am not an expert in this field but I think that the article has lost a lot of useful information. What about reinstalling it and marking up the sentences that you believe are POV.
- I'm trying to keep the article to a dispassionate outline of Wellhausen's achievement as a scholar. PiCo (talk) 23:49, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
Proposal to redirect Ritual decalogue to Covenant code
The 'What is the JEDP Theory? at GotQuestions.org' link not especially concerned with Julius Wellhausen, nor is it a good refutation of Documentary Hypothesis. I'm not especially familiar with WP rules, but I don't think that link has a place on a biographical article of Wellhausen.Stelorl (talk) 05:36, 21 March 2011 (UTC)

|The quotation "almost before I heard his reasons" is NOT in the Encyclopaedia Judaica as found in any web site. Perhaps it is in the Jewish Encyclopaedia.
If the quotation IS in the Encyclopaedia Judaica 2007 print version, can someone kindly supply the page number?
And it would be better to cite the original source, possibly the introduction to Prolegomena zur Geschichte Israels.
I express no doubt about the authenticity of the quotation per se. It rings true to Wellhausen. But the exact source needs disambiguation.W0103411 (talk) 19:23, 21 November 2007 (UTC)
