The Intertextuality of the Epistles: Explorations of Theory and Practice

£55.00

The international conference held in Limerick, Ireland, in May 2005 produced far more than the usual collection of loosely related papers. Rather, this volume from the 17 contributors demarcates and organizes a whole field, serving as an indispensable introduction to intertextuality in general, and as an original examination of the topic in relation to the New Testament epistles.

Reviews

  1. Barry S. Crawford, Catholic Biblical Quarterly.

    These essays herald a promising new approach. In particular, MacDonald, Leppa, and especially Sommer signal a growing willingness to reimagine Christian origins in dramatically new ways. New Testament study will surely benefit if in future conferences and publications the methodological kinks can be ironed out—and if the results of such efforts are as bold and thought-provoking as some of this volume’s contributions.

  2. Korinna Zamfir, Review of Biblical Literature

    An idea clearly emerging after reading this valuable volume is the importance of the intertextual perspective. Intertextuality reveals to what deep degree our understanding of texts is determined by later texts, precisely through the device of intertextual links … [T]he intertextual perspective invites scholars to reflect upon the incalculable amount of eisegesis involved in any examination of literary products, which creates a network of foreknowledge and preconceptions marking our exegesis.
