Crossley Never Expected the Papal Inquisition
Posted by NT Wrong on June 25, 2008
James Crossley gives his report on The Pope and Jesus of Nazareth Conference, 19-20 June, 2008, University of Nottingham.
After hobnobbing with the overtly theological crowd, James made this surprising summary about their application of historical criticism:
“Many theologians wanted historical criticism to give them the answers they wanted for theology and discard views that were not helpful.”
(What surprises me is that it’s only “Many”…)
Update: See the comments of Mystical Seeker on theologians diverting historical criticism.
