Century of Theological and Religious Studies in Britain, 1902-2002 by Ernest W. Nicholson

Book Description

The essays in this volume give an account of how the agenda for theology and religious studies was set and reset throughout the twentieth century - by rapid and at times cataclysmic changes (wars, followed by social and academic upheavals in the 1960s), by new movements of thought, by a bounty of archaeological discoveries, and by unprecedented archival research. Further new trends of study and fresh approaches (existentialist, Marxian, postmodern) have in more recent years generated new quests and horizons for reflection and research. Theological enquiry in Great Britain was transformed in the late nineteenth century through the gradual acceptance of the methods and results of historical criticism. New agendas emerged in the various sub-disciplines of theology and religious studies. Some of the issues raised by biblical criticism, for example Christology and the 'quest of the historical Jesus', were to remain topics of controversy throughout the twentieth century. In other important and far-reaching ways, however, the agendas that seemed clear in the early part of the century were abandoned, or transformed and replaced, not only as a result of new discoveries and movements of thought, but also by the unfolding events of a century that brought the appalling carnage and horror of two world wars. Their aftermath brought a shattering of inherited world views, including religious world views, and disillusion with the optimistic trust in inevitable progress that had seemed assured in many quarters and found expression in widely influential 'liberal' theological thought of the time. The centenary of the British Academy in 2002 has provided a most welcome opportunity for reconsidering the contribution of British scholarship to theological and religious studies in the last hundred years.

Books By Author Ernest W. Nicholson

Deuteronomy and the Judaean Diaspora by Ernest W. Nicholson Deuteronomy and the Judaean Diaspora, Hardback (January 2014)

Ernest Nicholson draws together and expands a collection of his writings on Deuteronomy, presenting his challenging thesis that the book derived from thinkers and writers who lived among the Judaean exiles in Babylonia in the sixth century, and in significant ways represents a break with pre-exilic Israelite religion.

Pentateuch in the Twentieth Century by Ernest W. Nicholson Pentateuch in the Twentieth Century, Paperback (November 2002)

This volume arises from the conviction that much in current research on the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament) needs to be subjected to rigorous scrutiny and that much is radically mistaken. Professor Nicholson argues that the work of Julius Wellhausen remains the securest basis for understanding the Pentateuch.

God and His People by Ernest W. Nicholson God and His People, Paperback (September 1988)

This book deals with God's covenant with Israel which the author believes is a theme central to the understanding of the Old Testament. He argues that the debate during the last century has revealed how crucial the covenant idea was in the development of what is distinctive in the faith of Israel.

Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapters 26-52 by Ernest W. Nicholson Book of the Prophet Jeremiah, Chapters 26-52, Paperback (May 1975)

The New English Bible translation of the text, with an introduction and commentary.
