Abstract

This session will explore the mechanisms of commenting on schooltexts. Commentaries, in general, contain a broad amount of diverse information and rhetorical styles that can only be understood in close connection with the texts that are explained. By focusing on three different examples we will discuss and compare differences and similarities in commentaries used for teaching purposes . Mr. Andree’s paper Gilbert the Universal and the gloss to Lamentations will add the specific aspect of Bible exegesis in a classroom environment to the more general discussion.
