Mauro Biglino is an Italian scholar of religious studies, for about thirty years he has been researching the so-called “sacred texts”, in the belief that only knowledge and direct analysis of the ancient writers’ message can lead to true and profound understanding of the religious thought expressed by humanity.
The linguistic and philological knowledge acquired through the study of Hebrew Masoretic manuscripts, as well as his knowledge of Latin and Greek , allowed Biglino to work as a translator for Edizioni San Paolo, the Vatican publishing house that eventually published 17 books from the Ancient Testament including Biglino’s interlinear literal translations from the Stuttgartensia Bible.
After working for that publishing house for several years, the author decided to realise a literal and philologically annotated true version of the Old Testament, in the attempt to get as close as possible to the authors’ original message.
After years of professional translations I started to tell on my own as I noticed in the Hebrew texts from which the Bibles that are in use for the believers. The method I decided to apply consists in focusing on the text literal meaning without proposing personal interpretations or receiving canonical exegesis. A clear and coherent framework emerges, which tells/telling us the story of an actual relationship between one people and one individual named Yahweh, who had received a mandate to deal with it. The biblical sequences read with this method reveal a story that calling into question what we’ve been taught and while providing hypothetical answers to questions which remain suspended. This applies to religion but also to science, a part of which is examining new hypotheses of the study and exploration that are able to open pathways that can lead to rewriting the entire history of mankind.
