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