This paper attempts to trace the development of the Anglophone study of theology and literature from its ‘modern’ origins under Nathan Scott through the work of George Steiner (perhaps best labelled a ‘modernist’) to the ‘postmodern’ era exemplified by Robert Detweiler. After attempting to define these terms and noting similar developments in the leading journals in this interdisciplinary field, I examine the work of all three of these critics, who between them represent the characteristic transformations in subject matter and in methodology within the discipline over the last fifty years.
