Book description

Modern disciplinary silos tend to separate the fields of classical philology and theology. This collection of essays, however, explores for the first time the deep and significant interactions between them. It demonstrates how from antiquity to the present they have marched hand in hand, informing each other with method, views of the past and structures of argument. The volume rewrites the history of discipline formation, and reveals how close the seminar is to the seminary.


‘This is a rich and diverse collective volume, which captures the reader’s interest and has the merit of putting forward a topic that deserves further attention. … The editors and authors deserve credit for having moved this issue onto the stage and the scholarly agenda. It has led to a volume that challenged my thinking and which informed me. Its richest contribution lies in the collective project as a whole. The book will be most rewarding for the reader who focuses on the first section of five essays and the introductory paper. The message that those contributions put forward deserves to be heard.’
