Robinson, Edward, 1794-1863



  • Existence: 1794 - 1863

Edward Robinson (April 10, 1794 – January 27, 1863) was an American biblical scholar known for his magnum opus, Biblical Researches in Palestine, the first major work in Biblical Geography and Biblical Archaeology, which earned him the epithets "Father of Biblical Geography" and "Founder of Modern Palestinology." He studied in the United States and Germany, a center of biblical scholarship and exploration of the Bible as history. He translated scriptural works from classical languages, as well as German translations. His "Greek and English Lexicon of the New Testament" (1836; last revision, 1850) became a standard authority in the United States, and was reprinted several times in Great Britain.
