This provocative book pursues a series of questions associated with canon(s) of the Bible. How does the canon influence the meaning of the texts of which it is composed? Could texts be "liberated" from the canon, and what would this liberation do to them or to the canon? What does the biblical canon signify about its constituent texts? What does canonical status imply about texts that are included in the Bible, as well as texts that are excluded from it? How does a canon_a cultural and ideological product influence or create ideology and culture?In The Control of Biblical Meaning, George Aichele draws deeply on the insights of postructuralist literary theory as he pursues these questions. He also engages in close readings of specific biblical and nonbiblical texts to demonstrate ways that canon controls the meanings of its texts. With dazzling skill, Aichele interrogates the form and function of canon as a mechanism that both reveals and conceals texts from its readers.ContentsAcknowledgments Introduction Pt. 1 The Control of Denotation 1 A Semiotics of Canon 2 The Technology of Text3 Ideologies of Translation 4 The Imperial Bible Pt. 2 Wild Connotations 5 Babble On 6 The Bleeding Page 7 The Humanoids 8 David Reconfigured 9 Signifying Jesus Conclusion: The Future of the Christian Canon Glossary Bibliography Index of Scripture and Related Texts Index of Names
