Finklesnoop of the Jew- ish Institute for Biblical Re- search in an article in the forth- coming J. I. B. R Yearbook for 2938. Professor Finklesnoop claims to have refuted the theory advanced by Professor Ellry Garbinger of the Hebrew Academy for Bible Study who in the H. A. B. S. An nual for 2921 claimed that Esther was a product of the Post-Tal- mudic Age.
