Exegesis and Hermeneutics in Erasmus' Paraphrase on Luke

Onderzoeksoutput: Bijdrage aan wetenschappelijk tijdschrift/periodieke uitgaveArtikelWetenschappelijkpeer review

Samenvatting

This article discusses how Erasmus deals with the personae in the Paraphrase on Luke,
distinguishing between the author Erasmus (the paraphrast), the narrator (the paraphraser)
and the evangelist. These ‘Luke-voices’ are connected to exegesis (explanation
of the narrative) and hermeneutics (the application of the narrative to the lives of the
audience). It is argued that Erasmus deliberately played with the voices; this enabled
him to criticize wrongs of his own times as worded by ‘Luke’, and to contribute to the
advancement of Christian piety.
