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.

    Ah – politeness is a fine thing!😉

    I don’t think your comments are vanishing, James. Perhaps you viewed your cache file on your computer, rather than the updated page? Just for your reassurance, I don’t censor any comments (except spam).
