Bibliography references:

This bibliography is divided into primary and secondary sources. Such a division roughly denotes the distinction between jeremiads themselves (the primary building blocks of the account in part I and much of chapter 7) on the one hand, and scholarship about the jeremiad on the other. The categories are not always airtight, of course, and readers who fail to locate a reference in one list should consult the other.
