The Renaissance Bible

Debora K Shuger

$17.99

Paperback
This is the first book on the Renaissance Bible by an Anglo-American scholar in nearly fifty years. Not confined to a history of exegesis, it is instead a study of Renaissance culture--a culture whose central text was the Bible. Shuger explores, among other topics, the links between late medieval Christology and early modern subjectivity; religious eroticism and the origins of the sexualized body; the transformation of humanist philology into comparative religion; and the representation of daughter-sacrifice and female erotic desire.

- Publisher "Debora Shuger is one of the most original interpreters of the English Renaissance now writing, andThe Renaissance Bibleis her best book yet. . . . [It] will help revitalize the study of religion for Renaissance scholars and cultural critics generally."--Jeffrey Knapp, author ofAn Empire Nowhere "This book is of vital importance to Renaissance studies. It demonstrates clearly and forcefully that Renaissance biblical scholarship is not a specialized discipline set apart, but one embedded deeply in the cultural matrices of the period. Shuger's graceful and seamless juxtapositions of evidence drawn from theology, philology, history, legal studies, politics, literature, and social institutions make her own method recapitulate the aura of the cultural grab bag that characterized the wide-ranging richly-textured Renaissance biblical discourse."--Regina Schwartz, author ofRemembering and Repeating: On Milton's Theology and Poetics
