Routledge Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Biblical Criticism

Series Editors:

The Routledge Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Biblical Criticism (RIPBC) series features volumes that engage substantially with Biblical literature from perspectives not traditionally associated with Biblical studies. This series aims at employing the best tools, theories, and insights from the sciences, philosophy, and beyond to yield fresh and demonstrable insights from the Biblical texts and from Biblical criticism itself.

Volumes in this series will typically have a dual emphasis between a field of study and Biblical scholarship, and accomplish at least one of the following:

  • Demonstrate why a particular field of study enables new insights in reading select biblical passages, texts, or corpora
  • Show how Biblical texts have anticipated themes and issues later approached in other disciplines, and can serve as an ancient conversation partner, or prescient critique, of those areas of study
  • Explain how a field of study offers a parallel insight into the methods or findings of Biblical criticism
