Nathan Söderblom

release date: Apr 29, 2019
Nathan Söderblom
"The nations of Scandinavia, the descendants of the Vikings, still from time to time send out world-conquerors of an increasingly spiritualized type. For centuries the name of Gustavus Adolphus, the saviour of continental Protestantism, has stood out, and we must go back to him to find the proper standards of comparison for a figure like Nathan Soderblom, himself a real 'defender of the faith.' His great name stands for a great cause. Already the ranks of his champions begin to grow thinner, but there are still many at work who received a decisive impulse from him: for them the saga of Nathan Soderblom, inspiring their loftiest thoughts and achievements, is no story of the past. So the following pages will be neither hagiography nor a monograph for experts, but directed to the wider circle of those for whom the struggle for church reunion, social peace, and international good-will forms an important part of their spiritual life."-From the Preface

How to Organize Central Securities Depositories in Developing Markets

How to Organize Central Securities Depositories in Developing Markets
The key objective of this note is to support authorities in their decision making about the optimal organization of central securities depositories (CSDs) in their country. For the purpose of this note, a CSD is defined as an entity that provides securities accounts, a securities settlement system, and central safekeeping services to market participants, which can be banks and other financial institutions. Authorities in developing markets, in particular central banks, may grapple with two questions: (1) whether to pursue a single CSD to increase market efficiencies and benefit from economies of scale and scope and (2) whether to partake in the governance of the CSD as owner or operator. This note presents seven considerations for authorities to take into account when answering these questions and determining the best model for their country.

Organizing Central Securities Depositories in Developing Markets—7 Considerations

release date: Mar 20, 2018
Organizing Central Securities Depositories in Developing Markets—7 Considerations
Central securities depositories (CSDs) are systemically important entities that are critical for effective implementation of monetary policy, the credibility of a government’s debt management program, collateral management, and safe and efficient securities markets. Authorities in developing markets, in particular central banks, may grapple with the following issues: i) whether to pursue a single CSD for all types of securities to increase market efficiencies and benefit from economies of scale; and ii) whether to partake in the governance of the CSD as owner and/or operator. This paper develops seven considerations that authorities may take into account in addressing these issues and finding the best model for their country. These may point to different solutions for different countries, depending in part on the size of markets, strength of private operators and level of market development.

Philo's Bible

The Text of the Septuagint

The Text of the Septuagint
This posthumous edition of Dr Walters' The Text of the Septuagint provides a valuable working tool for specialists in Hellenistic and Classical Greek and the Old and New Testaments. The book is directed first to the practical task of producing a critical edition of the Septuagint, the Greek version of the Old Testament. Byzantine and Renaissance scholars both regarded the Greek Old Testament as belonging to the Church rather than to the heritage of classical literature which formed the proper object of their critical endeavours. It was therefore reproduced for centuries in much the same corrupt form and no complete critical edition was produced. The present work is a detailed study of the grammatical corruptions and semitisms in the LXX and is intended to stand as the prolegomenon to such an edition.
