at broader world-view issues and influences (a much needed contribution
even if not always very convincing), but is pretty hopeless on the history
of the study of the synoptic problem (as everyone but him defines it).
We've got Schmithals, but it is only in German and based on a rather
triumphalist (teutonic) view of history ('to trace the history of the
synoptic problem is to solve the problem). But he does go into the actual
arguments that people used. We've got bits in Ku/mmel's History (useful
quotes and such like) and in Baird's History. We've got bits of protest
history in Farmer and Stoldt. We've got a bit as regards Q in various
places (esp. K-V Excavating). And we've got quite a few bits and bobs in
articles, monographs etc.
But we don't have any history of the study of the synoptic problem. Despite
the intrinsic importance of the subject and its influence on the rest of NT
studies (esp. hist. Jesus, but other areas as well). If Stephen wants to
write one, then more strength to him.
