PERSPECTIVES ON CANON HISTORY AND CANONICAL CRITICISM IN THE LIGHT OF BIBLICAL SPIRITUALITY

Pieter G.R. De Villiers

Abstract


This essay discusses various aspects of a recent publication in the light of the study
of canon history and canonical criticism. It first provides an overview of the reasons
for the renewed interest in canon history and criticism, with special attention to the
social reading of canonical books. It then analyses the continuity between canonical
and historical readings, before focussing on the issue of diversity in the canon. It
concludes by reflecting on this in the light of existing trends towards Biblical
Theology and especially Biblical Spirituality as its natural complement.
