Abstract

The study of the New Testament text is far broader than the reconstruction of its earliest attainable wording. As historical artefacts, manuscripts preserve information about the context in which they were produced and their use in subsequent generations, as well as pointing back towards an earlier stage in the transmission process. References made by Christian authors to the textual culture of the early Church, in addition to their biblical quotations and more general scriptural allusions, transmit information about the treatment of the documents as well as attitudes to (and the form of) the canonical text at the time. The task of the modern textual scholar is as much to map the continuity of the New Testament tradition as to reach behind it for a primitive form which was unknown to most later users.

Abstract

Developments in literary methodologies and archaeology have led scholars to question the traditional conception of biblical chronology and historiography. The starting point for Maximalist studies is the idea that the biblical story should simply be taken as true. However this position is indefensible from a scientific standpoint. Minimalists consider that everything began either during the Achaemenid period, around 400 years before our own era, or even later during the Hellenistic period. Th...

Abstract

Les progrès des méthodes littéraires et de l’archéologie ont conduit à mettre en question la construction traditionnelle de la chronologie et de l’historiographie bibliques. Les maximalistes partent de l’idée qu’il faut simplement faire confiance au récit biblique. Scientifiquement, cette position n’est pas tenable. Pour les minimalistes, tout commence seulement à l’époque achéménide, vers 400 avant notre ère, voire même encore plus tard à l’époque hellénistique. Ils font valoir que la Bible ...

Abstract

En la presente miscelánea se recogen estudios redactados por el autor a lo largo de más de cincuenta años de dedicación al esclarecimiento del texto hebreo-bíblico desde la perspectiva contextual cananeo-ugarítica. Organizados en tres grupos temáticos, los artículos tratan en líneas generales sobre cuestiones relacionadas con la interculturalidad sociorreligiosa, con la intertextualidad ugarítico-hebrea y con aspectos estilísticos y literarios de la Biblia hebrea. Por las reflexiones en torno a temas tan vigentes como los problemas de la traducción o el impacto del descubrimiento del Oriente antiguo en la cultura occidental, el interés de esta obra va más allá de los círculos de especialistas a quienes en principio va dirigida.

Abstract

Les testaments sont une source majeure pour les historiens du Moyen Âge. En Forez et en Lyonnais, certains revêtent une forme particulière : ce sont des testaments oraux, mis par écrit après la mort du testateur, voire des années après. À partir du xive siècle, l'officialité de Lyon et le comte de Forez imposèrent une procédure régularisée et l'enregistrement des textes. Parmi les notaires, une élite de prêtres notaires joua un rôle pionnier dans la diffusion de cette réforme dans les paroisses de montagne. Les dépositions des témoins, souvent de très humbles gens, furent faites en langue vernaculaire. La majorité des 10 000 testaments enregistrés proviennent de villages. La nature du patrimoine, les activités, l'organisation de l'habitat, la structure des familles, sont bien différentes chez les éleveurs de bovins des Monts du Forez de ce qu'elles sont dans les paroisses viticoles bordant la Saône. Mais la pratique successorale cherche d'abord à préserver le patrimoine du morcellement. On constate que les rites funéraires demeurent très modestes. Quant au clergé, il est souvent peu nombreux, tandis qu'il est pléthorique et bien organisé à Lyon et Montbrison. Ce livre - accompagné de documents inédits, édites et traduits - est une synthèse dressée après trente années de recherche. Il décrit la pratique testamentaire. Pratique mouvante quand on sait que les Foréziens pratiquèrent du xiiie au xve siècle trois procédures testamentaires différentes. Il montre la richesse documentaire que révèle le testament dans les domaines les plus variés : répartition du peuplement, profession des testateurs, pourcentage des femmes parmi ceux qui testent et ceux qui témoignent, relations sociales, vie quotidienne, etc. Sont fournis enfin un index des noms de lieux, un index des matières et un index analytique.

Abstract

« Mort pour nos péchés ». Cette antique formule exprime le sens que prend pour la foi l'événement historique de la mort de Jésus. Elle est liée à un ensemble de catégories archaïques (sacrifice, expiation, substitution, rachat, rédemption, etc.) dont l'homme contemporain ne semble plus pouvoir faire usage. Comment faut-il donc la comprendre aujourd'hui ? C'est à cette question que tente de répondre ce volume, résultant d'une session théologique pour enseignants et universitaires, tenue en 1975 à l'Ecole des sciences philosophiques et religieuses des Facultés universitaires Saint-Louis à Bruxelles. La démarche est pluridisciplinaire et comporte quatre moments : enquête exégétique, analyse anthropologique, ethnosociologie des religions et réflexion théologique.

Abstract

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the history and development of the Latin New Testament and a user’s guide to the resources available for research and further study. The first five chapters offer a new historical synthesis, bringing together evidence from Christian authors and biblical manuscripts from earliest times to the late Middle Ages. Each witness is considered in its chronological and geographical context, to build up the bigger picture of the transmission of the text. There are chapters introducing features of Latin biblical manuscripts and examining how the Latin tradition may serve as a witness for the Greek New Testament. In addition, each book of the New Testament is considered in turn, with details of the principal witnesses and features of particular textual interest. The three main scholarly editions of the Latin New Testament (the Vetus Latina edition, the Stuttgart Vulgate, and the Oxford Vulgate) are described in detail. Information is also given about other editions and resources, enabling researchers to understand the significance of different approaches and become aware of the latest developments. The Catalogue of Manuscripts gives full details of each manuscript used in the major editions, with bibliographical references and links to sets of digital images. The Appendices include concordances for the different ways in which manuscripts are cited in scholarly literature. An extensive reference bibliography of publications on the Latin New Testament is also supplied.

Abstract

This book contributes to an extensive number of scholarly works produced in 2017 which commemorate the scientific revolution and paradigm shift that occurred in 1517. The year 2017 marks the 500th celebration of the Reformation actuated by Martin Luther when he published what later became known as the Ninety-Five Theses on indulgences. The Reformation was a religious, social, cultural and political event that reshaped the landscape of modern Europe and has had an influence on parts of the world far beyond. This includes the ‘far South’ such as South Africa where the legacy of the Reformers has moulded institutional and individual lives across boundaries of ethnicity and beliefs. Worldwide celebrations of this quincentenary anniversary provide scholars with an opportunity to reflect anew on the consequences and lasting import of the Reformation. This book provides one such a platform by discussing the scientific relevance of Reformed theology, specifically with regard to biblical, historical and systematic-theological themes. Comprising a collection of essays by scholars belonging to the Reformed tradition, it aims at examining the historical heritage of the Reformation, the current state of discourse in Reformed theology as well as the contemporary relevance of a Reformed approach to theology. It contains biblical, historical-theological and systematic-theological perspectives and addresses a variety of issues such as biblical interpretation, text-criticism, translation, constructive impulses emanating from classical Reformed thought, Christian freedom, anthropology and dialogue with non-Reformed traditions. Although the approaches followed are by no means exhaustive, they do provide the reader with some indication of approaches followed in Reformed discourse. Chapters 1–4 pertain to biblical interpretation. A variety of methods are discussed and employed, namely the grammatical-historical, text-immanent, socio-historical, redactional-historical, diachronic and synchronic approaches. These analyses confirm that biblical interpretation requires a multi-faceted approach to biblical texts. Chapters 5–9, conversely, discuss various historical and systematic-theological themes. Classical texts from the Reformation, specifically works by Calvin and Luther, are examined, and contemporary theological literature are analysed, compared and evaluated while innovative new ideas are proposed. This book is written in the reformed spirit of semper Reformanda. While it enters into dialogue with other traditions such as Pentecostal, Neo-Pentecostal, Roman Catholic and Lutheran theology, it also exhibits an attitude of self-reflection and self-correction. This contribution does not only affirm the Reformed heritage as a living tradition, but it also attempts to invigorate the tradition with innovating new ideas by drawing on classical and recent theological literature. The target audience is mainly Reformed theologians, but non- Reformed scholars, who are interested in engaging with the Reformed tradition, would find this book informative.
