Though varieties of historical criticism have been central to the modern, academic study of the Bible, many scholars, advocating new paradigms, have called this centrality into question. Given ongoing reassessments of method in biblical studies, what might an examination of the beginnings of historical criticism contribute to an understanding of the discipline today? This talk will consider this and related questions.
