Our profession is one in which abbreviations seemed to be highly loved. They really do flourish, and each year new ones are added. Over at the Deinde Blog, one of the blogs that are driven by a team (I’m jealous), they now present a list of SBL Abbreviations.

Over at Deinde, you can also find a Biblical Studies Glossary, a most helpful list. Just hover the mouse arrow oe a word, and a definition appears.

There is also a list of SBL Abbreviations in the SBL Handbook of Style (Hendrickson Publishers, 1999). I have not checked if these two lists are identical. This SBL Handbook is also available online at the SBL Site, but it is only available when you enter as a member of the SBL.

  1. Thanks for the mentions. Most of my abbrevs list contain the SBL abbrev’s, but I may be missing some and plan on checking over it soon. I hope to eventually amass the authoritative list on the internet 🙂 and one that is more accessible and usable than the SBL handbook list
