The volume is a Festschrift offered to Charles Kannengiesser on the occasion of his 80th birthday and honours him for his numerous scholarly accomplishments. Its twenty-five contributions discuss some of the major issues pertaining to the reception and interpretation of the Bible in late antique Christianity and Judaism. They focus on the ways in which communities and individuals understood the Bible and interpreted its traditions to address their historical, social, and theological requirements. Since the Bible was by far the most important book during these centuries, a discussion of its influence in such contexts will illuminate significant aspects of the formation of western civilisation.ContentsAbbreviationsList of ContributorsAcknowledgementsIntroduction: The Reception and Interpretation of the Bible in Late AntiquityLORENZO DITOMMASO AND LUCIAN TURCESCUCongratulatory LetterTHE RIGHT HONOURABLE ROWAN WILLIAMS, ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURYKEYNOTE ADDRESSThe Novelty and Inescapability of the Bible in Late AntiquityROBERT LOUIS WILKENPAPERSCar mes iniquit�s d�pass�rent ma t�te.
