Abstract

The core idea behind this panel of three sessions is to bring together global scholarship working on the role of the Bible in the transcultural societies of the Euro-Mediterranean world and beyond in a strictly comparative and multidisciplinary manner. By focussing on the biblical background of perceptions of the religious and cultural ‘Self’ and ‘Other’ in the Mediterranean world and the Baltic Sea we will identify commonalities and differences of the ‘uses of the Bible’ in these worlds, and thus entangle and contrast studies on Bible manuscripts, their exegesis, and their use for historical writing in the various medieval worlds.
