Inhoud
In the course we focus on some of the stepping stones in the Christian tradition of reflection on the interpretation and understanding of Christian faith in its historical form.  The history of interpretation starts within the Bible itself. Reading (Biblical) texts involves bridging historical and cultural distances between texts and readers in which new understandings of Christian faith are gained and expressed.  We study the theoretical (methodological, philosophical and theological) decisions and implications in the theories of interpretation and understanding of Philo of Alexandria, Augustine, Luther, Schleiermacher, Barth/Bultmann and Kwok Pui-lan (as a representative of the recent tradition in feminist, post-colonial and multifaith interpretation). We investigate the challenges their theories were answering in their own historical, cultural and intellectual contexts and ask for the lasting relevance of their contributions. These are tested in the praxis of intercultural Bible reading in class and compared to documented results of and reflections on intercultural Bible reading elsewhere.
