Abstract The Chronicler was fond of mentioning and quoting prophetic voices. However, apart from Isaiah and Jeremiah, no other prophets of whom we have literary works in the Hebrew Bible feature in the Chronicler's version of history. Numerous other prophets, however, not known from the Hebrew Bible are mentioned and quoted. And this happens in a time when, according to some scholars, classical prophecy as an active phenomenon had ceased. Within this broader context, the present paper will focus on Jeremiah as authoritative prophet in the Books of Chronicles. Why is Jeremiah quoted as an authoritative source in the closing sections of the books? And how does this relate to the intricate history of the formation of the canonical book of Jeremiah? Prof. Hermann-Josef Stipp (LMU, Munich) provided valuable comments on a draft version of this article, particularly on the Jeremiah scholarship included here. I hereby acknowledge his input with gratitude, but also confirm that all misappropriations are the responsibility of the author.
