Mowinckel, Sigmund

▪ Norwegian biblical scholar
born Aug. 4, 1884, Kjerringy, Nor.
died June 4, 1965, Oslo

      Norwegian biblical scholar, founder of the Scandinavian school of Old Testament studies.

      Educated at the University of Oslo (then Kristiania), Mowinckel spent his life from 1917 teaching there. His greatest contribution was in cultic-religious history. He conducted substantial research into the motivation for the psalms and in the practice of worship in ancient Israel. He wrote Psalmenstudien, 6 vol. (1921–24; “Studies in the Psalms,” later popularized as The Psalms in Israel's Worship, 1962), one of the major works of biblical commentary of the 20th century. Depicting the psalms in their concrete cultural milieu, he emphasized the cultic nature of their origin and development.
