About this product
- DescriptionFirst published in 1998 by the University of California Press, The Renaissance Bible skillfully navigates the immense but neglected materials spanning the gap between medieval biblical scholarship and the rise of Higher Criticism. Debora Kuller Shuger powerfully demonstrates the disciplinary fusion of Renaissance biblical scholarship--in which the Bible remained the primary locus for cultural, anthropological, and psychological reflection--against modern historians' penchant for bracketing all things religious when reimagining the Renaissance world. Despite the considerable ground she covers and the interdisciplinary nature of her subject, Shuger never roves. Her penetrating focus casts remarkable light on her subject, especially Renaissance writers' use of the Passion. Their concerns emerge as surprisingly contemporary, inviting the reader to reflect on such relevant topics as selfhood, violence, and gender.
- Author BiographyDebora Shuger is Distinguished Professor of English at UCLA, where she specializes in Tudor-Stuart literature, and the author of The Renaissance Bible: Scholarship, Sacrifice, and Subjectivity . She lives in Culver City, CA.
