Show Summary Details


This concluding chapter summarizes the lessons that can be taken from Daniel Boyarin, Erich Auerbach, Hans Frei, and Origen on their figural extensions, biblical interpretations, and figural readings. It notes that Origen has intervened throughout this book in several guises: first as a target of the three other modern interpreters of figural reading, second as a critic of the three modern representations of figural reading, and finally as a figural reader and theorist.

Keywords: Daniel Boyarin; Erich Auerbach; Hans Frei; Origen; biblical interpretation; figural readings; figural extensions
