Product Description

A masterful analysis of biblical interpretation before the rise of higher criticism. In this powerful work, Shuger contrasts Renaissance scholarship---in which the Bible remained the primary locus for cultural, anthropological, and psychological reflection---with modern historians' penchant for bracketing all things religious when reimagining the Renaissance world. 313 pages, softcover from Baylor University.

Publisher's Description

First published in 1998 by the University of California Press, The Renaissance Bible skillfully navigates the immense but neglected materials spanning the gap between medieval biblical scholarship and the rise of Higher Criticism. Debora Kuller Shuger powerfully demonstrates the disciplinary fusion of Renaissance biblical scholarship--in which the Bible remained the primary locus for cultural, anthropological, and psychological reflection--against modern historians' penchant for bracketing all things religious when reimagining the Renaissance world. Despite the considerable ground she covers and the interdisciplinary nature of her subject, Shuger never roves. Her penetrating focus casts remarkable light on her subject, especially Renaissance writers' use of the Passion. Their concerns emerge as surprisingly contemporary, inviting the reader to reflect on such relevant topics as selfhood, violence, and gender.
