Title: Biblical Interpretation in the Russian O A ...
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
Book Condition: New
In the majority of Western premodern and modern handbooks and surveys of the history of biblical scholarship, Eastern Orthodoxy is mostly and habitually dismissed. A clear orientation toward the Western branch of the Christian church is maintained throughout. However, because the Russian Orthodox Church is an organic part of the universal church this book attempts to assist in the Orthodox-Protestant interactions and serves as an introduction to Russian Orthodox hermeneutics. Alexander Negrov surveys the development of biblical interpretation within the history of the Russian Orthodox church from the Kiev period of its history (10th to 13th centuries) until the Synodal period (1721â€"1917). The purpose of his study is to present a coherent analysis of the essential elements of Orthodox biblical hermeneutics as it developed over a period of several centuries that were critical to the defining of the Orthodox church and to present a case study of the hermeneutical approach to the New Testament of D. I. Bogdashevskii (1861â€"1933). The main hermeneutical features of the Russian Orthodox Church show that the church and tradition are the indispensable guides to the understanding of Scripture. Christ is considered the beginning, center, and end of biblical interpretation, and exegesis is based on cooperation between the Holy Spirit and the human interpreter. The church demands reading of the Scriptures guided by church dogmatics and a multidisciplinary approach to the text. Bookseller Inventory # NEGBIBLIC
