The present volume concerns the history of biblical interpretation and its ongoing significance in light of more cultural and material approaches to scriptural interpretation. The range and variety of insights arising from many key moments in the history of biblical interpretation and the ways in which Auslegungsgeschichte stays close to the words of the biblical text while also interpreting it in light of the message and the needs of the church in different ages: these lie at the centre of these contributions.
