Along with narrative criticism, Wirkungsgeschichte criticism is a peculiarly popular method within biblical criticism. Both originated in hermeneutics and both aim to study the way the biblical text can be interpreted: they are therefore complementary. This course provides an introduction for Wirkungsgeschichte. The first part is devoted to the theoretical foundations of the method, the second one to the metodological framework and the third part to examples of Wirkungsgeschichte. Every student can then be able to exercice with case studies.
