The Samaritans—an important group among the sects who were the Jews of the New Testament period—have been a subject of scholarship since their rediscovery by European Orientalists in the 16th century. That interest has been augmented recently by prolific scholarly literature.

Crown's first edition of this bibliography, which quickly became the standard in the field, listed all the discursive literature to 1984 and referred to major ancient and medieval sources, ranging from Biblical, Greek, and Latin patristic writers to German pilgrims and Arab geographers.

Since 1984 the field of Samaritan studies has expanded at an explosive pace; nearly 1,000 new items directly concerned with Samaritan studies have been written and are included in the bibliography.

The features that were so welcomed by reviewers and users of the first edition—the alphabetical arrangement by author and the subject index—are retained, and an additional title index is supplied in the second edition.
