Contrary to the Enlightenment view that Biblical commentaries ought to establish the definitive meaning of ambiguous statements, pre-modern traditions, such as the Jewish Midrash, used commentaries to establish multiplicity of meanings and acknowledge ambiguity as the nature of truth. This session asks how the ‘truth’ of a text is transformed when it is read through a pre-modern hermeneutic.
