The Journal of Higher Criticism was initiated in 1994 as a forthright attempt - in a time of scholarly neo-conservatism - to hark back to the bold historical hypotheses and critical interpretations associated with the great names of F. C. Baur and Tübingen. We presented articles dealing with historical, literary, and history-of-religion issues from the perspective of higher criticism. The Higher Critical Review, appearing in each issue of the Journal, featured detailed review essays on important new works relating to historical criticism. The Journal of Higher Criticism was published semi-annually, Spring and Fall. The Editor was Robert M. Price; The Associate Editor was Darrell J. Doughty. The final issue of the Journal (Volume 10, No. 2) appeared in fall, 2003.
