Exegetical Encounter in Late Antiquity

The Leverhulme Trust funded Exegetical Encounter in Late Antiquity, which explored the interaction between Jewish and Christian biblical commentators in the formative period of both religions. The research, 2005-2009, demonstrates to what extent Christian commentators were influenced by Jewish commentators and vice versa. The first of two publications was published by Brill (The Exegetical Encounter between Jews and Christians in Late Antiquity eds., E. Grypeou and H. Spurling, 2009) and a second volume, The Exegetical Encounter between Jews and Christians in Late Antiquity: the Book of Genesis, Jewish and Christian Perspectives Series 19 (Leiden: Brill, 2013).
