The Oxford Handbook of English Literature and Theology

Preview

The Oxford Handbook of English Literature and Theology is a defining volume of essays in which leading international scholars apply an interdisciplinary approach to the long and evolving relationship between English Literature and Theology. The volume first offers a chronological account of key moments in the formation of the tradition; goes on to demonstrate literary ways of reading the Bible, theological ways of reading literature, and literary conceptions of theological texts; and finally, explores the great themes that have preoccupied the Jewish and Christian traditions. Framing editorial articles describe the history, the cultural implications, and the methodological issues of this now-popular interdisciplinary study, before speculating as to its possible futures in a postmodern, multicultural world.

Keywords: relationship; key moments; reading the Bible; theological texts; Jewish traditions; Christian traditions; history; culture; postmodern world; multicultural world
