Toter Buchstabe – lebendiger Geist. Bibelauslegung als Lektüreereignis


Prica, Aleksandra (2013). Toter Buchstabe – lebendiger Geist. Bibelauslegung als Lektüreereignis. Das Mittelalter. Perspektiven mediävistischer Forschung, 18(1):46-61.

Abstract

There is scarcely a sentence in the New Testament that could have unleashed a wider reception history than Paul‘s comparison of the letter and the spirit in the third chapter of the Second Epistle to the Corinthians: "For the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.” In Patristics two diverging lines of reception can be identified, which, depending on the perspective, emphasise the hermeneutic or the soteriological side of the formula more strongly. This paper investigates the antithesis of spirit and letter at various stations of its reception history from Late Antiquity to the late Middle Ages and ventures to profile the contrast primarily as the hermeneutic relationship between the object and the reading event
