The Bible was the essence of virtually every aspect of the life of the early churches. The Oxford Handbook of Early Christian Biblical Interpretation explores a wide array of themes related to the reception, canonization, interpretation, uses, and legacies of the Bible in early Christianity. Each section contains overviews and cutting-edge scholarship that expands understanding of the field. Part One examines the material text transmitted, translated, and invested with authority, and the very conceptualization of sacred Scripture as God's word for the church. Part Two looks at the culture and disciplines or science of interpretation in representative exegetical traditions. Part Three addresses the diverse literary and non-literary modes of interpretation, while Part Four canvasses the communal background and foreground of early Christian interpretation, where the Bible was paramount in shaping normative Christian identity. Part Five assesses the determinative role of the Bible in major developments and theological controversies in the life of the churches. Part Six returns to interpretation proper and samples how certain abiding motifs from within scriptural revelation were treated by major Christian expositors. The overall history of biblical interpretation has itself now become the subject of a growing scholarship and the final part skilfully examines how early Christian exegesis was retrieved and critically evaluated in later periods of church history. Taken together, the chapters provide nuanced paths of introduction for students and scholars from a wide spectrum of academic fields, including classics, biblical studies, the general history of interpretation, the social and cultural history of late ancient and early medieval Christianity, historical theology, and systematic and contextual theology. Readers will be oriented to the major resources for, and issues in, the critical study of early Christian biblical interpretation.

Author: Calum M. Carmichael
Calum Carmichael asserts that biblical texts, both in the Old and New Testaments, which have been the subject of interpretation for centuries, are themselves often the products of the ancient authors' interpretation of still other literary compositions. Claiming that parts of the Bible constitute major and very early examples of exegesis, Carmichael demonstrates that the author of the story of creation in Genesis 1 produced his work in reaction to troubling issues that arose in the story of the exodus. The author of John's Gospel, in turn, recounted the life of Jesus in light of the story of creation. Pointing out that much of modern literary criticism has roots in biblical hermeneutics, Carmichael turns his attention to the richness and complexity of the ancient world's own modes of interpretation. By doing so, he is able to uncover the heretofore unrecognized influence of the exodus story on the creation story and of the creation story on John's Gospel. Carmichael first shows how the author of the seven-day scheme of creation in Genesis produced it in response to his reading of the exodus story, which was centuries old in his time. He then shows the extent to which the author of John's Gospel was influenced by first-century cosmological speculation, Philo's in particular. In the first five chapters of his gospel the author elaborated the details of the creation story to present, in allegorical fashion, incidents from the life of Jesus.

When we speak of the English Renaissance, what is it that we are naming, what are we recognizing reborn? As the essays in this latest collection from the English Institute demonstrate, our basic notions of the period have themselves been reconceived. In Cannibals, Witches, and Divorce, seven critics defamiliarize the images of the Renaissance "to permit the repressed to return, to acknowledge the presence of the unassimilable ghost the mark of difference of an age that is at once self and 'other'." John Hollander discovers a "hidden undersong" in the Spenserian lyric, while Patricia Parker examines the question of feminine dominance and male resistance in the Bower of Bliss. Stephen Orgel and Steven Mullaney document the Renaissance encounter with the alien "other" in essays on The Tempest and The Merchant of Venice. Macbeth, in Janet Adelman's reading, encodes the fantasy of an absolute and destructive maternal figure. Marjorie Garber addresses the Shakespearean authorship controversy in the context of the subversive uncanniness of the texts themselves; Mary Nyquist discusses Milton's Eve, his divorce tracts, and the exegetical tradition as recently examined by feminist biblical scholars. Together, these essays explore Renaissance discourses of estrangement as strategies for the construction of the self and the world.
