Eduard Meyer Casts Doubt on Moses

PREFACE to Martin Buber’s book, “Moses”.

IN the year 1906 Eduard Meyer, a well-known historian, ex­pressed the view that Moses was not a historical personality.

He further remarked:

“After all, with the exception of those who accept tradition bag and baggage as historical truth, not one of those who treat him as a historical reality has hitherto been able to fill him with any kind of content whatever, to depict him as a concrete historical figure, or to produce anything which he could have created or which could be his historical work.”

[End of quote]

In this site, ample evidence will be given for both Moses’ words (writings) and deeds).
