The Cultural Reception of the Bible

by Salvador Ryan


    Notify Me


The Bible is undoubtedly the most influential ‘book’ that the world has ever known. In thirty essays, this wide-ranging volume examines the cultural impact of biblical texts, from the early Middle Ages to the present day, on areas such as theology, philosophy, ethics, ecology, politics, literature, art, music and film. Contributions range from Saadia Gaon’s tenth-century Arabic translation of the Pentateuch to Martin Scorsese’s 1988 film adaptation of The Last Temptation of Christ; from the biblically inspired writings of a late seventeenth-century French galley slave to Paul Ricouer’s reading of The Song of Songs; and from the deep biblical culture of fifth-century Rome to the divisions that biblical verses perpetuated in late twentieth-century Ulster.

Contributors include: Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin, CSsR (Newark); Thomas O’Loughlin (U Nottingham); Cornelius Casey, CSsR (TCD); Jeremy Corley (SPCM); Noel O’Sullivan (SPCM); Michael A. Conway (SPCM); Jessie Rogers (SPCM); Martin O’Kane (U Wales, Trinity Saint David); Kerry Houston (DIT); and more.
