Abstract

GERICKE, Jaco W.. Old Testament theology and philosophy of religion: A brief history of interdisciplinary relations. Old testam. essays [online]. 2010, vol.23, n.3, pp. 627-651. ISSN 2312-3621.

Overviews of the history of biblical interpretation sometimes include references to major philosophical trends, ideas and sub-disciplines that have influenced readers of the Old Testament (OT). Curiously, no overview exclusively devoted to describing relations to philosophy of religion has ever been written. In this paper, the first such account is provided by way of a purely descriptive introduction to how OT theologians have remarked on and utilised philosophical approaches to the study of religion.
