Book Information


Title: Tradition and Innovation in Biblical Interpretation
Subtitle: Studies Presented to Professor Eep Talstra on the Occasion of his Sixty-Fifth Birthday
Edited By: W.Th. van Peursen
J.W. Dyk
Series Title: Studia Semitica Neerlandica

The theme of this volume in honour of Eep Talstra is ‘Tradition and Innovation in
Biblical Interpretation’, with an emphasis on the innovative role of computer-
assisted textual analysis. It focusses on the role of tradition in biblical
interpretation and of the innovations brought about by ICT in reconsidering
existing interpretations of texts, grammatical concepts, and lexicographic
practices. Questions addressed include: How does the role of exegesis as the
‘clarification of one’s own tradition, in order to understand choices and
preferences’ (Talstra) relate to the critical role which Scripture has towards this
tradition? How does the indebtedness to tradition of computer-driven philology
relate to its innovative character? And how does computer-assisted analysis of
the biblical texts lead to new research methods and results?
