Synopsis: 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.

From the Inside Flap: "Debora Shuger is one of the most original interpreters of the English Renaissance now writing, and The Renaissance Bible is her best book yet. . . . [It] will help revitalize the study of religion for Renaissance scholars and cultural critics generally."—Jeffrey Knapp, author of An Empire Nowhere

"This book is of vital importance to Renaissance studies. It demonstrates clearly and forcefully that Renaissance biblical scholarship is not a specialized discipline set apart, but one embedded deeply in the cultural matrices of the period. Shuger's graceful and seamless juxtapositions of evidence drawn from theology, philology, history, legal studies, politics, literature, and social institutions make her own method recapitulate the aura of the cultural grab bag that characterized the wide-ranging richly-textured Renaissance biblical discourse."—Regina Schwartz, author of Remembering and Repeating: On Milton's Theology and Poetics
