This workshop focusses on various receptions of the biblical accounts of creation in literature, music, fine arts and popular culture. Using examples of the reception of biblical texts on creation we want to explore the interaction between different readings, reading strategies and social, cultural and theological discourses at the respective time.
Thus we will ask questions such as:
Michaela Bauks, University of Koblenz-Landau, Germany
Susanne Gillmayr-Bucher, Catholic-Theological privat University Linz, Austria
Marianne Grohmann, University of Vienna, Austria
We invite paper proposals dealing with the reception of biblical texts or motives of creation in literature, music, fine arts or popular culture. The focus of the research should lay on the interaction of the chosen example of reception with the various discourses of its time. It should describe how the biblical texts/motives are used to contribute to current discourses, and, vice verse, which transformations such discourses induce for the interpretation of biblical texts
