Heinrich von Siebenthal, after studying Ancient Greek, Hebrew, and English linguistics at the Universities of Zürich
and Liverpool, has lectured in Greek, Hebrew, Aramaic, and related subjects such as text analysis and translation theory at
the (now) Giessen School of Theology (Freie Theologische Hochschule Giessen), a state-accredited seminary in Germany, and
the (now) Staatsunabhängige Theologische Hochschule Basel, a state-accredited seminary in Switzerland. His research emphasis
has been on the application of solid findings of modern linguistics to ancient languages and to the interpretation of Biblical
texts which led to publications that are highly respected for their quality.
