Resumo

DE VILLIERS, Pieter. Freedom to understand and serve: The contribution of Spinoza to biblical research. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.1, pp. 1-30. ISSN 2412-4265.

This article discusses the contribution of Spinoza to the interpretation of the Bible. After an introduction setting his research on the Bible within his time and context, it investigates several facets of his hermeneutics. The article then focuses on his methodology, the application of reason, his historical approach to the Bible and the way in which he understands both the human and divine nature of the Bible. A brief conclusion points out Spinoza's interpretation of the Bible as an attempt to promote freedom of thought.
