History of Biblical Interpretation

  Conveners: Amanda Benckhuysen, Marion Taylor      Email conveners

The History of Biblical Interpretation group focuses on recovering and examining the work of past male and female biblical interpreters with the aim of better understanding the methodologies, themes, and historical trajectories in the interpretation of biblical texts.

This year, our theme is “Reading Paul in the Reformation.” To facilitate our discussion, we have invited three scholars (Stephen Chester, Joy Schroeder, and Marion Ann Taylor) to give 20 minute presentations on male and female interpreters during the Reformation. All are welcome to join the session to participate in what is sure to be a robust discussion. Inquiries about the session can be directed to the conveners.
