Translated tears : exegesis and politics in seventeenth-century versions of Lamentations

Barreiro-Isabel, E. J. 2005 (has links)
Chapter One focuses on the role of Jerome’s Vulgate at the intersection of interpretative practice and politics in humanist sixteenth- and seventeenth-century exegesis. Catholic and Protestant reactions to Jerome are represented by those of Donne and Quevedo. Chapter Two discusses the 1575 Tremellius Latin Bible and Martín Antonio Del Río’s 1608 Commentarius litteralis in Threnos. These were major sources respectively for Donne’s and Quevedo’s versions of Lamentations and are representative of the Calvinist mainstream in the English Church and of the Spanish-Jesuit slant in the Catholic Habsburg Empire. Chapter Three reads the implicit political dimension of Donne’s undated metrical paraphrase ‘The Lamentations of Jeremy, for the most part according to Tremellius’, in the context of the explicit political dimensions of his undated sermon on Lam 3.1 and his sermon on Lam 4.20 delivered on November 5th 1622. Chapter Four shows how Quevedo applies essential features of the Old Testament text as lessons applicable to Philip Ill’s Pax Hispanica, and sets his verse and prose commentaries in the context of contemporary commentaries on Tacitus, making explicit the political dimension of the text. Quevedo’s self-appropriation of the prophet Jeremiah and his Lamentations is an admonitory lamento patrius in the tradition of ubi sunt and an urgent call against the enemies of Spain and contrasts in form and explicitness with the 1609 version of the Franciscan Andrés de Soto. Chapter Five compares Donne’s and Quevedo’s appropriations of Jeremiah and his Lamentations, emphasising their handling of Jeremiah in the context of the topos of tears and laughter, and their treatment of the historical and allegorical dimensions of Lam 4.20 regarding the figures of the Biblical kings Zedekiah and Josiah. The interpretative and formal flexibility of exegetical practice makes possible a consideration of the similar and diverse ways and ends in which Donne and Quevedo appropriate the Biblical text and reflect the complexities and preoccupations of their age.  The Conclusion shows that the task of establishing similarities and differences in exegetical practice is complex and sometimes paradoxical.

Challenges to New Testament theology : an attempt to justify the enterprise

Balla, P. 1994 (has links)
In this thesis I survey and examine major challenges presented to the enterprise of writing a New Testament theology. I argue that the challenges, although weighty, are not convincing. In a programmatic way, I also put forward arguments in favour of the thesis, that the enterprise may be justified. I accept the proposal that New Testament theology should be a historical enterprise (W.Wrede, H.Räisänen). I argue that a historian may describe the theological content of the New Testament and that this should be the task of the enterprise. Theology here does not mean the theology of the modern interpreter, but the theology of the New Testament itself. Theology should be understood as a broad term: it should include beliefs of the early Christians, as well as practices in connection with their beliefs. The theology of the early Christians should not be separated from their religious experience. As historians we have to study all the available evidence and historians may justify the study of the theology of the New Testament, if they find that early Christianity had a basic theology, which was generally adhered to, and that this basic theology was represented in writings held to be authoritative. I argue (against W.Bauer and H.Koester) that what was later called "orthodoxy" was the earliest form of Christianity. Christians not adhering to the theology of the orthodox became regarded as heretics. I challenge the view that the canon came into existence as a late decision of the church. Rather, we can trace the beginnings of a canonical development to the first century. Indeed, the New Testament authors may have written with an awareness of authority which was on the same level as that of the Old Testament prophets. (Excursus: The Temple Scroll had a canonical status in Qumran).

Scale in literature : with reference to the New Testament and other texts in English and Greek

Barr, G. K. 1994 (has links)
This dissertation explores "scale" in literature in general, and in the New Testament epistles in particular. All creative activity has its locus at an appropriate point within a wide scale spectrum: literature is no exception. This became apparent in 1965 when scale relationships were observed by the author in cumulative sum graphs of the Pauline epistles. Such scale differences are familiar to architects who use scale as a creative tool, but a wide search through standard reference books, surveys of work on statistical stylometry, linguistics and Biblical studies failed to provide any evidence that scholars were aware of scale in literature. Further investigation revealed that scale differences were to be found in many fields of creativity, in architecture, art, photography, music and engineering. Also explored was an interesting parallel found in the multi-layered scaling associated with the mathematics of chaos. To provide a broader perspective through which to view the Pauline epistles, 80 works by six modern authors and the writings of three ancient Greek authors were selected as test material. Graphs were prepared showing the sentence sequences and distributions of these works comprising over 400,000 words, and scale differences were found, not only between works, but also between sections of individual works. These were related to differences in genre, and this raised serious questions concerning the statistical homogeneity of samples containing scale differences. Care was taken to relate patterns directly to the content of the text and to the findings of Biblical scholarship. Links with theology revealed that the sense of the numinous presence, and the sense of the sublime in art, were on occasion directly reflected in sentence length. Human moods and feelings were found to have unpredictable but measurable manifestations in terms of scale in literature.
