Redaction Critique Understood as Part of a Discourse Analysis – Vorlagen and Redactional Processes in the Formation of the Pentateuch
The evaluation of classical observations and theses on the literary history of the Pentateuch from a discourse-analytical concept opens possibilities to reconsider the position of source and redaction criticism and other philological methodologies in the context of general text studies.
At the 2022 meeting, traditional approaches and solutions are to be brought into conversation with discursive analytical investigations. The different results are likely to be due to different models of how Biblical texts emerged. Therefore, one of the main focuses should be the formulation of appropriate models for the emergence of the Pentateuch and its precursors. Contributions that deal with “classical” theses on literary history are welcome, as are discourse-analytical considerations on the emergence of texts and the development of themes. A critical examination of the respective other methodological approach is desirable, so that the strengths and weaknesses of both methods become visible.
