1.3.5 Hermeneutics and the Philosophy of History

This Theology Matters video presents the study of interpretation, hermeneutics, and the role it has played in allowing the Christian tradition to engage with modern frameworks.

Guiding Questions:

  1. How could taking into account the audience and context change our reading of a religious text?
  2. If our knowledge is limited by our culture and context, is there such a thing as objective and complete history?
